My Students

I teach Spanish 1A and 1B in a low-income school district in rural upstate NY. I have approximately 80 students who take Spanish A and 40 who take Spanish B. The Spanish A students are in their first year of Spanish and the Spanish B students are starting their second year of instruction.

It would take me hours to tell someone about my middle school students: they are kind, they are thoughtful, they are funny, and they are such incredible learners.

I have missed them so much throughout the COVID closure and the summer vacation. I can't wait to see them again to tell them how happy I am to see them. I also can't wait to feel their excitement about second language learning!

My Project

Reading and listening are essential keys to second language acquisition.

“The second language student needs massive amounts of comprehensible, interesting reading material, enough so that he can read for pleasure and/or interest for an hour an evening, if he wants to, for several months.”—Stephen Krashen.

This project would allow for each student to have access to eight different novels in a digital format. In Spanish A we would read two or three titles as a class and the students could use the other titles at their leisure to assist in their language learning.

In Spanish B, we would read three or four titles (depending on time constraints) and the students would have the remaining titles to read at their leisure. This will be equitable for all students because it eliminates the possibility of losing a book and waiting for a replacement to arrive from school if one is available.

This would be safe for students because there would be no sharing of materials and students could move seamlessly from in-class hybrid learning to virtual learning without the necessity of getting a book into their hands when and if the school closes.
