Today was a very productive day for my Spanish 2 students. Their assignment was to be able to discuss their favorite actors or actresses in Spanish (of course) and ask questions or comment on their classmates’ statements. They were expected to look up any necessary vocabulary, ask me for help as needed and speak in the target language.
I have to say that they exceeded my expectations. One class went to the local coffee shop, ordered their drinks and started talking. I asked questions and made comments as well, so they had to think on their feet and keep up! A few students were really hesitant at first. Normal under the circumstances, right? After all, this ole, mean teacher was demanding something scary from them! They had to move out of their comfort zone. YEA!!!!!
Both classes were interacting so quickly that I could barely register who was speaking to add checks by the names! They made me proud.
