This is the first year that our school is offering Spanish Heritage classes for the Hispanic students. Usually, Hispanics were placed in the regular Spanish classes but they used to get bored due to their knowledge about the language. They used to finished their work very quickly and then they did not know what to do.
This year was the first time that we offered Spanish Heritage 1 and Spanish Heritage 2 Honors.
My students are very happy about the new classes and they are getting better on their native language. This is the first time that my Hispanic students feel challenged.
Students need to practice their speaking, listening, writing and reading skills during this class. Whenever they read a book they are practicing reading and comprehension. After reading they always start writing about the book. They need a hardcopy book to read. Our library does not have enough Spanish books for my new classes. I wish we could use these books for next year.
PDF books do not feel the same when you are reading from a computer.
I have tried to read those books with my classes and I always have problems with distraction.
These paper copies will help a lot my students with their reading learning.
