My Students

I teach Spanish 1 at a Title 1 high school in Arizona. I generally have between 39-42 students in each of my four classes. Although it is a Spanish 1 class, Spanish is the only world language taught at this high school and students range in proficiency from beginning to advanced.

I want to create an excitement for learning a second language; to instill a sense of "I can do this" and make the learning process more interesting and fun!

My school district has a large population of students with learning and behavioral issues and from low-income families. Many of the students come from a Hispanic background but know very little about the Spanish language. This is a wonderful opportunity to share the world with my students.

My Project

I am incorporating comprehensible input in my teaching strategy. There is a strong focus on reading which helps to grow vocabulary and an understanding of grammar. I am building a classroom library to encourage my Spanish 1 students to learn a second language through comprehensible reading....stories that are written at a level that the beginner student can fully understand.

More books mean a wider variety of topics and greater success in enticing those "not so Interested" readers!

Your donation will help expand my library but also expand my students' vision of the world.

With the large calendar I will be able to post daily lessons. It is important for students to have a clear idea of each day's objectives Instead of coming into class and asking "what are we doing today?".
