My Students

I work at a very diverse School in Newark, Delaware, where almost 40% of our students come from low-income families from different cultural backgrounds. This is my third year having the amazing opportunity of teaching Spanish to more than 200 students annually with very diverse learning styles.

Research shows that having a varied reading program is the way to go to differentiate for all type of learners, especially with high-interest novels written specifically in a very comprehensible way.

My Project

Students receive input in specifically in two ways: listening and reading. To get the most out of it, however, is by getting this input in a comprehensible and interesting way. My classes are very dynamic, where I do my best to provide students with vocabulary through contextualized, repetitive, and comprehensible input. This year, I am planning to introduce them into the world of reading in a foreign language to gain more CI for which I am trying to create a reading nook where students will have access to pick books of their own interest and commit to reading at least two novels as a whole class activity per school year.

I know my students will be thrilled to see these new novels to choose from in a fun, appealing, and resourceful reading space.
