My Students

My students are enthusiastic high school students, involved in multiple activities in school and within the community. I have freshman through senior in the same room. These students are in beginning level Spanish classes. Most students have one year or less of prior learning experiences. Many of my students already speak multiple languages.

Their compassion for each other and effort to create a sense of community in the classroom is incredible.

They are willing to work with and support each other.

My Project

The key to successful free reading is being able to find something you enjoy reading. Inspiring students to read in their first language can be a challenge, even more so when it is their second language. Language acquisition is aided by input and free reading provides my students with valuable input.

Inspiring students to read in a second language is easier when students have access to a wider variety of reading material.

Being able to provide students access to novels such as María María and Los Sobrevivientes provides students a variety of topics and levels of text ensuring all students have the opportunity to read something they enjoy therefore aiding language acquisition.
