Classroom activities: write poems using certain tenses

Here are the poems and short explanations of two students:



Katherine  Cross:



As a way to practice verb tenses, we were asked to write a poem. By doing this assignment I learned the proper way to use the conditional form, both in Spanish and in English. We had to manipulate different verbs in order for the poem to flow. On top of that, it was actually really fun to write because it allowed me to be creative. I chose to write mine on nature while others wrote about their past…

Reflections

Creativeness, strength, purpose and meaningfulness exude from the learners sitting in my room, fill the entire space, inspire and motivate me, the mentor, and therefore, dictate my interaction with my scholars.

Many of my colleagues and I strongly believe that it is a privilege and an honor to face day after day our future, the best of the best, tomorrow’s political and social leaders.

Thank to Facebook and Twitter, I know for a fact and I have witnessed countless times that…

Skyping with the South African students in Mr. Gatoux’s class (11/28)

 

On the Monday following Thanksgiving break, my Spanish class had the rare opportunity to video chat with students from our sister school in South Africa.  Before talking with them on Skype, we had only communicated through blog entries, exchanging questions about what life is like in our respective countries.  For example: a normal school day.  In my mind, school goes from eight to…

More Than a Sport: A Look at Scootering’s Evolution

Too many people do not have a clear idea about what is a Scooter; and much less than there is a sport based on it. Besides, it is a sport that has evolved a lot from its beginning, but if you do not know too much about the sport is hard to see it as more than a kid game.However, this sport is more than just kids and young people making scooter tricks in a square; scootering is a kind of culture and a lifestyle that has more than 20 years growing to become what it is today.For this reason, we…See More
