My Spanish students need a variety of books, CDs, and charts to enhance their vocabulary and grammar.
I work at a special education school, servicing emotionally disturbed, learning disabled, and other special education classified students. Our 175 students come from low socioeconomic backgrounds. Over 95% of the student body is eligible for free lunch and over 90% receive public assistance. The school’s ethnicity is as follows: 60% Hispanic, 30% African American, 8% Caucasian, and 2% Asian. These factors come together and place our children at a huge disadvantage, but we are committed to providing them with a rigorous academic and therapeutic program. I teach beginning and intermediate Spanish classes to these special needs students. Introducing a foreign language to special needs students is an exciting challenge, and I am always seeking new materials to stimulate their learning. This proposal is for books, CDs, and charts which my students can use during classroom lessons and their personal study periods. I am truly impressed with my students, because they are so engaged in my class. Some students have grown up speaking Spanish, and now they are learning to put grammar and spelling to use with their family's native language. I hope some of my students will be inspired to study Spanish when they go off to college. Thanks for viewing my proposal and considering my kids!
