"One of the hardest things in life is having words in your heart that you can't utter" --James Earl Jones
My students are in 9th, 10th, 11th or 12th grade in Spanish 2 and 3.
We live in a mostly rural area, and access to technology at school is essential. My students are mostly college-bound and are taking foreign language as part of their Advanced Diploma studies. I also teach the Pre-AP and AP Spanish students. This school year, I will be teaching a Mythology course as well.
My students need 30 headsets with built-in microphones for our mobile language lab. For students who will be taking the AP Exam in May, we will be doing practice activities similar to the tasks on the test. These consist of simulated conversations, where students must respond spontaneously to a pre-recorded dialogue. They must also practice presentational speaking after being given a short prompt. For my lower level students, pronunciation practice is key. We will be recording songs and tongue twisters in the target language. For my Mythology students, we will be creating newscasts from the Greek gods. Audio recordings will be a great tool for all of my classes!
With increasing demand and decreasing funding, it is more difficult every year to access the resources we need to bring our learners up to date on technology.
With dedicated resources, we will be able to use these tools more often with the kids. These tools also make learning more fun as they give the students the chance to express themselves creatively.
