When BHS AP Spanish students are the teachers…

…they grow as learners!

As a teacher, it’s a wonderful experience when you observe your students teaching others what they have learned! Last week, our AP Spanish students had the opportunity to present their work on a hero from Latin America that they researched to two Spanish III classes. The assignment consisted of students researching the hero’s impact on their country’s public identity. For their visual presentation, students drew a self-portrait of their Latin American hero and summarized the information that they researched in written format below the drawing. In the BHS lower library, the AP Spanish seniors met with BHS sophomores and juniors to present their hero and show off their drawing skills. The peer to peer presentation activity was fun to watch! Listening to students interact with their younger peers entirely in the target language was so inspiring for everyone involved. BHS Spanish teachers continue to seek out these types of learning opportunities where students are the teachers to their peers. As a result, our students feel in control of their language speaking skills in Spanish!
