"La realidad mágica de Oaxaca--Colores, olores y sabores de Oaxaca": An Interactive Workshop for Spanish Teachers
Centeno, Pamela; Wells, Christine
Learning Languages, v10 n1 p28-29 Fall 2004
As the fortunate participants in the National Endowment for the Humanities summer institute entitled La Realidad Mágica de Oaxaca, the authors designed interactive ways to share their rich and colorful learning experiences with their students and colleagues. This article discusses how the authors presented their Oaxacan adventures in an all-day workshop for the Colorado Congress of Foreign Language Teachers (CCFLT). The goal of the presentation was to immerse the participants in an Oaxacan cultural experience, stimulating their senses. Geography, archaeology, colonial architecture, marine turtles, people of the maize, crafts, cuisine, music, song, and dance were all addressed through interactive activities in the hope that the participants would leave with ideas that they, too, could share with their students.
