Cultura


The study of other cultures is fundamental to the courses I teach. One of the Core Learning Outcomes is that "Students will be able to understand and value cultural differences through the study of Spanish." I integrate culture into all areas of language study, such as when teaching grammar and vocabulary and when doing listening comprehension activities. To see a project I created integrating culture into language study click on the link to the left. Students also complete cultural projects such as posters on Spanish-speaking countries, blogs sharing cultural information, and video projects about cultural aspects of different countries.


 

Tecnología

I incorporate numerous technologies into my classes to engage, motivate, interact with students and, ultimately, to increase student learning. Some of the technologies I use are: videos and podcasts, glogster for digital posters, voki avatars for speaking activities, digital books, class blogs, twitter, wiki pages, google+, iPads, among others. You can find examples of teacher-created as well as student projects using different technologies on this page.
