Project funded by Foreign Language Assistance Grant, 2007 - 2010
The Technology Enhanced Elementary Spanish Program (TEESP) was a three-year
collaborative effort by ESU #16, ESU #15 and area schools. The program is funded by a
FLAP (Foreign Language Assistance Program) grant.
The project design was developed by a team of high school Spanish teachers. Known
as the WLLC team (World Language Learning Community) team these teachers have
worked together for several years to improve the teaching strategies in language
education for area schools. They have all participated in various professional
development opportunities, including Teaching Proficiency through Reading and
Storytelling (TPRS) with Susan Gross and Karen Rowan, Comprehensible Input Reading
Strategies with Jason Fritze and Literacy Strategies delivered by staff from Nebraska
Department of Education, World Languages Department.
