Oregon Writing Project

Galapagos ELL Project

The Oregon Writing Project has organized trips to the Galapagos Islands for groups of teachers to strengthen their work with second language learners.  The teachers taught English as volunteers and studied and practiced Spanish in an effort to be able to use Spanish in their classrooms and to develop a first-hand sense of how it feels to be learning a second language while immersed in a foreign culture.  For more information, see the web pages on this site about the trips.
