My Students

My students attend a Title I high school are taking Spanish to fulfill their foreign language requirement. Many are college bound and hope to use their linguistic skills in future employment. They also participate in our Seal of Bi-literacy program​. Many of my students speak Spanish at home and wish to learn how to read and write. They are eager learners and come to school with a positive attitude. Spanish is a great skill for all students to learn in high school.

My Project

My project will allow students to learn about Spanish history while learning the Spanish language. In this project, students will incorporate poetry into small performance groups. Students will write poetry in Spanish and recite in their small groups. The requested chairs are for small group discussions (so that they may move outside the classroom), and the markers are for the dry erase board for students to place Spanish words to create poetry. The smaller whiteboards are for students to use in their discussion groups. Students will discuss difficulties of conveying poetry in Spanish and spell out pertinent vocabulary on the whiteboards. Discussion groups are a great tool for students to get a chance to speak and learn in a small setting. They aren't intimidated to share their ideas and thoughts. Students will then recite their poetic art in Spanish. Please help make Spanish poetry come alive.
