On Saturday, January 18, US Embassy Doha sponsored its second Language and Literacy Professional Development Event for local school teachers for the Fall/Winter Semester.  The theme of the event was “instructional strategies to build opportunities for student engagement while managing classroom discipline and planning for academic success.”  In addition to our regular presenters, Meredith Hedrick (Qatar University) and Melissa De Leeuw (Qatar Academy Al Wakra), we had two guest presenters – Anne Marie Anie (Qatar Academy Doha) and Noureddine Cherif (Qatar University) – lead workshops.  In total, 76 local teachers participated in the event, which was held at Qatar Academy Al Wakra.
