Romance Studies made a splash at the annual Massachusetts Foreign Language Association conference in Sturbridge October 25-27. The conference brought together over 600 K-16 language instructors from MA, CT, NH, RI and upstate NY. RS faculty and graduate students offered 3 of the 85 sessions, and all were well attended.  Célia Bianconi and Sue Griffin presented  ”Effective Reading Strategies for the World Language Classroom.” Grad students Jen López and Paola Calahorrano–in their first foray into conference presentations–presented “Taming Technology: Achieving the 5Cs through Free Web Applications.” Angelica Avcikurt (photo) had the hall rocking with “Teaching Puerto Rican Culture through Music.”
