Hoarier attends summer foreign language camp
New Braunfels I ligh School German teacher Stephanie Koehler recently participated in Austin College’s Richardson Summer Foreign Language Institute to prepare for the upcoming school year.
The institute provided Koehler an opportunity to refresh language skills and develop new cultural and technology resources for her students.
Koehler joined French, German, Latin and Spanish teachers in the weeklong seminars led by Austin (College’s Department of Classical and Modern Languages faculty, with assistance from language residents from Europe and Latin America.
The teachers attended workshops on culture, literature and computer technology in curriculum and attended films, musical evenings, dance performances and other activities between their classroom instruction.
During the seminar, Koehler spoke German at all times. Koehler was selected for the event with support from her principal.
All fees, including room and board, were funded by a grant from the Sid W. Richardson Foundation.
