Distance Learning en Español - Be GLAD Educator Webinar Series


We're GLAD so many of you joined us this week for our weekly Be GLAD Educator webinar to support distance learning. Over the next couple of weeks, we will continue to offer free weekly webinars to support you during this time.

A special thank you to our guests, Luis Pelayo, Angie Martín Gorno and Laura Soto, for sharing so many awesome strategies to GLADify distance learning.

If you missed the webinar, click on the image at the top to watch the recorded session and check out the following links for some of the wonderful resources that were shared.

¡Arrastra y suelta!


During the webinar, Angie shared how to create your own Arrastra y suelta, or Drag and Drop, activities using Google Slides in Preview Mode. She demonstrated how this technique can be used for a wide range of activities and for all grade levels.

One example she provided was how this can be used to create a digital Narrative Input Chart, a Be GLAD strategy that follows the tradition of oral storytelling. The objective of the Narrative Input Chart is to teach literary elements and to model fluent reading. If you're not familiar with this strategy, you can read more about it and watch a demonstration of this strategy in Spanish on our blog.
