Class Experience

This class is taught in Spanish.
Stories, laughter, and games make compelling forces in language-learning! In this class, those at or near the beginning of their Spanish-language journey will practice different kinds of structures and phrases each week while playing games and listening to simple stories. No previous Spanish knowledge is required.

Though this FLEX version of the course includes no live class time, please see below the various ways we will interact over the course of this learning experience:

~Interaction Through Instructional Videos~
Each Sunday, I will post a video introducing the new structures and vocabulary for the week.  I will also read the story of the week and provide comprehension questions.   Students will have opportunities to show their understanding through various methods and activities.  The teacher will provide constructive feedback on responses.

~Interaction Through Reinforcement Games and Activities~
Each week features a chapter from the book that practices that week's structures and vocabulary. Each Sunday, I share a video of myself reading the story, I provide printable versions of the stories and practice activities for the students. I recommend that students read that story to a person at home, SSR (Sustained Silent Reading) or record themselves and share with the teacher for additional practice.  We will correct comprehension questions every week for feedback and have an optional interactive game or activity to check for understanding. 
I have been a certified Spanish teacher for the past 24 years.  I have a masters in education.  I lived and studied in Spain for several years so I have a true Spanish accent (castellano). I have attended many comprehensible input training and am a certified CI teacher.
Homework will consist of watching the weekly video lesson and completing practice activities.  Practice activities will be completed individually and may take up to 20 minutes each week. Learners will be encouraged to make videos, draw pictures and record themselves speaking Spanish. They are also able to interact with other learners in the Outschool classroom. The learners will receive digital flashcards that can be printed out each week.
La Llorona de Mazatlán novel will be utilized during this class. Book can be purchased at Wayside publishing if you would like your own copy. I will provide reading materials during class.
In addition to the Outschool classroom, this class uses:
No live meetings, and an estimated 0 - 1 hours per week outside of class.
This novel is based upon a Mexican ghost/spirit legend.  The spirit/ghost does make appearances throughout the book but does not harm any of the characters.   It is a great story to read in the fall during the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.
Google Slides/Screensharing- Class will be delivered using Google presentations and screensharing.
Pear Deck- Is an educational site that I will use to create more engaging lessons.  If this site is utilized, I will share the log in code via Outschool platform.  Students log in with a class code.
Gimkit & Kahoot- I will assign optional activities on these educational platforms for reinforcement games/activities. There will be a student log in code for this class accessable via Outschool messaging
Youtube- I use this platform to share educational videos via screensharing.  
The novel for this class can be purchased at Wayside Publishing.  The novel is called La Llorona de Mazatlan. Youtube will be used to show videos.  Pear Deck and Google slides will be used to deliver class information. Quizlet, Flipgrid, Gimkit and may be used as optional ways to practice the language and reinforce class topics.
