Class experience

US Grade 2 - 5
This class is taught in English.
I hold a Bachelor's Degree in Language Education. 
I have spoken Spanish for 18 years. 
I lived in Mexico for 6 years, where I personally visited or lived in the regions we will study.
I hold a TEFL certificate. 
I have taught foreign language online since 2014. 
Homework Offered
Homework is optional for this class. I will provide printouts for students, in the virtual classroom, each day, if they wish to print out worksheets as an additional activity. I personally design all printout activities.
0 - 1 hours per week outside of class
Assessments Offered
Grades Offered
Students will not need anything special for this class. They will only need a working electronic device that can operate both Zoom and the Nearpod website. 

I recommend that students bring a pencil and a notebook to class, to write down new vocabulary. 
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
Please note that I use Nearpod for my lessons. Nearpod is a website that allows teachers to create slide presentations with interactive activities for students. A link will be provided via the Zoom chat box during the live class to access Nearpod. I will also provide the necessary 5 digit code to access the lesson. If students wish, I can also provide them with a link to access the lesson on their own time after class. 

I may use Kahoot in this class. or I may not. Kahoot is a website where teachers design quiz games for students to test their knowledge and review what they've learned. If I use Kahoot in class, I will provide students with the necessary link and Game PIN to access the Kahoot game. I will also include this information in the virtual classroom, for students who wish to play the Kahoot game at a later time. 

I also use YOUTUBE videos in this class. The videos are less than two minutes, and they are embedded in the actual lesson. Students will not need to navigate to the YouTube website to see these videos. Each video I use is a virtual tour of a different location in Mexico, or a shot video of the Maya football game called Pok-ta-Pok. These videos add new meaning to these things that just can't be fully expressed through reading. However, we will not spend an excessive amount of class time viewing videos. As mentioned, each class has 1 video that lasts 2 minutes. The lesson about Palenque has 2 brief videos, one being about the Maya football game.

Please note that I cannot provide Zoom links for students to enter the session. Outschool does not allow this. 
*****************************
TECHNOLOGY NOTE

Children should be able to handle technological functions like accessing the Zoom chat box, turning on or off their microphone on Zoom, clicking a link to open the Nearpod website, navigating to the Nearpod website, and opening a new tab on their internet browser to see the Nearpod website. They should be able to click answers to questions on their screens. It would also be good for them to know how to navigate between Zoom and an external website, since they'll need to do this during class to participate in the Nearpod games.
