"Good Practices in the Bilingual Classroom"
Instituto Franklin-UAH and the Subdirección General de Bilingüismo y Calidad, belonging to Dirección General de Bilingüismo y Calidad de la Enseñanza de la Consejería de Educación, Universidades, Ciencia y Portavocía organize, within the framework of the collaboration initiated in 2017, a seminar to share and explore knowledge and methodological trends in the bilingual classroom.

It will be an opportunity to share knowledge, to create collaborative relations and to offer a recognition to the centers and the teachers that reach a high level of expertise in bilingual classrooms.
This event focuses on three great subjects that represent some of the challenges teachers face in bilingual centers nowadays: the inclusion in the classroom, coordination between directive teams and teachers, and the collaboration between the teaching staff and the language assistant in the classroom.
