WHERE: Grace Dodge 179

Join us for a free workshop led by award-winning children’s recording artist, author and bilingual educator José-Luis Orozco on how to use music as a tool for learning in multicultural classrooms.

José-Luis Orozco has performed before millions of children, and his books and music are used by tens of thousands of teachers in America.  He has recorded 13 volumes of Lírica Infantil, Latin American Children’s Music, and written three successful, award winning books, De Colores (Dutton 1994), Diez Deditos — Ten Little Fingers (Dutton 1997), and Fiestas (Dutton 2002). CD’s of De Colores, Diez Deditos and Fiestas, accompany these colorful books and present an extraordinary bilingual collection of songs, rhymes, tongue twisters, lullabies, games and holiday celebrations gathered from Spanish-speaking countries.  In 2009, Jose-Luis received recognition and was honored by the Association of Bilingual Directors affiliated with the Los Angeles County Office of Education (LACOE).

Sponsored by the Association of Multilingual Education Scholars (AMES) and the Department of Bilingual/Bicultural Education.
