FOREIGN LANGUAGE TRAINING PROGRAM DEVELOPED

Coastal Carolina University will host "Best Practices," a series of seminars introducing new teaching methods for K-12 language teachers. The pilot program, consisting of seven workshops scheduled between June 2001 and February 2002, is being funded through the Eisenhower Grant Program, a national project created by Congress to provide professional development to elementary and secondary school teachers and educators. The program was developed by Coastal professors JoAnne Flanders and José Sanjinés with Sharon McCullough of Horry County Schools.

The Best Practices program will offer sessions covering several innovative new approaches to teaching, particularly the teaching of languages.

The following sessions will be offered:

- June 9, 2001: Block Scheduling, led by Deborah Espitia of Howard County (Md.) Public Schools

- Sept. 29, 2001: Curricular Designs K-6, led by Harriett Barnett of Manhattanville College
