A picture tells a thousand words

Example of student work

My goodness, how time flies. Sadly, no March posts, but we'll start April off right with a new idea for using iPads in the classroom.

The Spanish Civil War is one of my favorite topics, but I find it hard to teach to my Spanish 4 students, who are mostly sophomores and do not have a lot of the content background to understand the historical context or significance of that time period in Spain. I've struggled with this for years, but this year I think I finally found a good way for students to get the general idea while staying in the target language.
