The high school students designed the lesson and spoke to the 8th graders about taking French classes at the high school. Also, French 4 students regularly write in response journals. Ms. Dore’s French I and French II classes created digital presentations with voice and music recordings using Adobe Spark to practice speaking and listening to French.
Ms. Homokay’s Spanish 2 students practiced vocabulary using a variety of online tools such as Jeopardy and Kahoot Challenge. In addition to Kahoot, Ms. Homokay’s Spanish 3 students practiced vocabulary using Quizlet, Studyspanish.com and completed personal profiles in video format which they uploaded to Ms. Homokay’s Google Classroom.
Ms. Shaughnessy’s Spanish 3 classes created interactive projects using snapchat. Ms. Shaughnessy’s Spanish 4 classes researched current immigration data and compiled infographics using the data.
