Introductory Spanish: “Conéctate” in the Classroom

IMG_5410Love to see this!  The introductory Spanish textbook, Conéctate, I co-authored with Grant Goodall is in use in classrooms already.

Here we see students interacting in Spanish with purpose. They are up and moving around the classroom, mingling and using their Spanish in real-world ways to get to know each other.

The activity pictured here comes from the ¡Hablemos! (“Let’s talk!”) activity at the end of chapter 2, which requires students to describe themselves in every way they can (basic descriptions, but also personality, likes and dislikes).  

Students wrote a profile (either of themselves or another classmate that they interviewed) on brightly colored paper.  The papers were then hung around the classroom for students to read and learn more about their peers.IMG_5407

Students mingled to find the classmate with whom they have the most in common before reporting back to the entire class.IMG_5412
