Bienvenidos a las clases de español.
Welcome to Spanish class at Corbett High School. I am Sra. Luna – one of four Spanish teachers at the high school level (two are charter employees and two are Corbett Schools employees). All of us also have other responsibilities apart from Spanish, but we also teach one or more levels of Spanish. I currently have one class of first year Spanish and three sections of advanced Spanish.
In level one Spanish, we are learning lots of vocabulary fast and furiously! The students have learned at least 50 words in just the first four days alone! We are using a method called “TPR” or Total Physical Response, which makes learning fun, active, and effective.
In the advanced level Spanish, students in 2nd, 3rd and 4th levels are combined in a multi-level class designed to meet each student where s/he is at and move them forward. This is another example of the continuous progress model that is present in many of the programs at Corbett Schools. Currently we are exploring a health unit in Spanish that includes useful words and phrases that one might use when visiting a Dr. and current issues in health related fields. Students will be creating projects designed to demonstrate what they have learned as a culminating activity for this unit.
Thanks for visiting!
Sra. Luna
