Summary: Team teaching is an excellent way to blend content expertise with language instruction in a content-based language course. But how does team teaching function in practical terms? Stephanie Enseñat Davis, a Spanish teacher, and Melanie Krob, a History teacher, have been successfully team teaching a Latin American Studies course in Spanish at Isidore Newman School for the past four years. In this session, they will share strategies for team teaching a content-based language course, including strategies for course planning, course delivery, and assessment.
