SPA 201 students began working on their blogs in the fall of 2011. Students continue to post the written work they produce in the voice of their Hispanic alter egos. They embed Voicethreads with their performance (and those of their classmates) on speaking tasks they must master, along with playlists of their favorite Latino music. Over the course of one semester or two, we can appreciate the progress they make in their writing and speaking and we can see the awakening of authentic curiosity about Spanish-speaking countries they adopt and that they learn about.
This semester, students continue their journey. Their posts will begin to show greater sophistication of expression and their oral presentations will be more fluent, more confident. We are immensely proud of the progress they make. These blogs are a testament to their hard work, creative spirit and commitment.
When you read these students’ blogs, explore between their lines and you will notice the spark of their awakening curiosity about the Spanish-speaking countries they have adopted. It is a thing of beauty…
So, READ (lee), ENJOY (disfruta) and LEARN (aprende) !! 🙂
