1 thought on “Toni”

  1. Toni–it’s great to hear of someone in my same situation of teaching 4 quarters of middle-school exploratory Spanish. Uncanny, but I decided the exact same thing with my 4th quarter students when they came back from spring break this week–that I would speak 90% Spanish. I have a timer and a student in each of my 3 classes times my English usage and reports at the end of class. I aim for under 5 minutes and reached that easily the first couple days back from break.
    I blew it the past two days, thinking I’d let the class do some small-group, easy story translations. Disaster–they ended up having one person write while the others talked about sports, etc. It had worked OK giving small groups 3 minutes to come up with story ideas but 10 minutes just opened wide that English door. Gotta slam it shut again tomorrow and slow back down.
    Thanks for the confirmation that squelching all those explanations in English is the right thing to do. I needed to hear that today. I visited a traditional high school Spanish classroom over my break and was shocked to see how little Spanish input there was. And that was the way I had planned to teach this year–I didn’t know any better–until I ended up in a TPRS-only school district in Indiana. Blessing in disguise.
