Eleven local secondary teachers gathered on campus Tuesday, November 11, for a day of professional development focusing on intercultural competence across content areas and the teaching and learning of world languages. In addition to peer-led workshops and activities, Professor Erik Bleich and Chaplains Naila Baloch and Beau Scurich co-facilitated a workshop on identifying and addressing Islamophobia; and Juniata College Professor Amy Frazier-Yoder led a workshop on using cultural and historical role plays in the classroom.  Middlebury College participants in the Language in Motion program joined the teachers over a delicious lunch. This is an annual event hosted by the Language in Motion program.
