These resources include music, pictures, video clips, written and printed material. For example: students get a sense of achievement when they are able to understand words in song lyrics, TV and newspaper commercials. This connects their learning to their world making learning relevant and exciting.
Celebratory Best Practice
My students are always waiting our “Cultural Experience Day”. It's not a "party", it is an educational activity that gives them the opportunity to “ live” and learn about the Hispanic Culture”. These activities may include learning to dance salsa or merengue or trying authentic food (empanadas, tostones, flan, etc.).
