The Carlos Rosario School was delighted to host 28 international high school students April 1st and 2nd, as part of the Workshop for Youth Leaders in Teaching of English, a program of the State Department’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs. The visitors, who are living with host families in the US, observed ESL classes at the Harvard Street Campus, participated in classroom activities and discussed English language instruction with some of the teachers. Many were excited to share their impressions of the school in social media, one of them calling it “an amazing professional place of learning.”
For his part, Principal Ryan Monroe said that he was impressed with the students’ enthusiasm. “The students had very good questions. They were so enthusiastic about visiting classrooms and helping our students,” he said.
The WYLTE program sets out to cultivate skills specific to teaching English, such as student-centered methodology, effective use of technology, and classroom management, among others. Coming from 19 different countries, participants are expected to bring back what they learned to their home communities.
