“What and how much had I lost by trying to do only what was expected of me instead of what I myself had wished to do?” ― Ralph Ellison, Invisible Man

If you are interested in new ways to integrate literacy, language, and the arts in your classroom and in exchanging ideas with an international community of educators, join us in Merida, Mexico at the 11th annual Habla teacher institute
The 2019 Habla institute will explore the concept of seen and unseen through multiple lenses. What does it mean to be visible or invisible in educational settings or in society in general? What can we do as teachers to help all of our students be seen and celebrated in schools? The institute will examine these questions through literature, art, music, and movement. Focal texts will include The Invisible Man by Ralph Ellison, selections from the works of Eduardo Galeano, and children’s literature including The Invisible Boy and Wings.
The institute is for teachers of every level from college to pre-school. Although the institute is presented bilingually in Spanish and English—all languages are welcome.
Space is limited to the first 50 participants who register.
We are still working on this year’s itinerary. For an overall feeling of the institute schedule and presenters download last year's itinerary here.
Each year Habla collaborates with Arnold Aprill and his organization Radical Compliance Arts and Learning Laboratory to find innovative ways to document the institute. Visit here and learn more about the experience at the 2018 Teacher Institute: Chasing Windmills.
Register for a two-day pre-institute hosted by OWL, Organic World Languages. Open to language teachers or anyone interested in a highly-energetic, community-based approach to teaching.
