William Carey University hosted a regional workshop for the Mississippi Foreign Language Association at the Hattiesburg campus on July 24.

The workshop, now in its fourth year at Carey, is held for teachers to share experiences they have in their respective classrooms and to also learn new ways of instructing their students.

Seven presenters were featured, including Sirlene Capers, South Jones High School; Erica Scott, Delisle Elementary School in Pass Christian; Edgar Serrano, the University of Mississippi and Oxford University School; Dr. Aurora Fiengo-Varn, Gulfport High School; Yohanna Jimenez, St. Luke’s Episcopal School in Mobile, Alabama; Lucy Solano, Petal High School; and Hector Barberena, Pascagoula High School. Jimenez, a former president of the state foreign language association, served as coordinator of the workshop.

Topics covered at the workshop ranged from the benefits of educational travel for high school students to using social network site Pinterest as a resource for teachers. The presentation given by Fiengo-Varn and Jimenez, titled “Optimizing YouTube Videos in the World Language Classroom,” and the presentation given by Serrano, titled “A Picture is Worth a Thousand Words, Really,” tied for “Best of Mississippi” at the 2014 association state conference.

In addition to the presentations, attendees also learned about various foreign language professional associations and enjoyed a luncheon and door prizes.
