In episode 8 of We Teach Languages, Stacey talks with elementary Spanish teacher Dorie Conlon Perugini about the opportunities she’s had to develop her own practice, to share classroom practices with others, and to support early language learners as they develop intercultural competence. We also get to learn about her forthcoming book co-edited/co-written with two of my favorite authors, Manuela Wagner and Michael Byram.
We welcome feedback, resources, and diverse perspectives on this topic! To contribute to the conversation started here, leave us a voicemail or send a text message to (629)888-3398. Or you can follow us on Twitter @weteachlang or use this contact form to send us an email.
