Westside Hosts Organic World Language Training

Posted on:

Westside’s World Languages department hosted a 2-day Organic World Language (OWL) training.  Teachers from Oregon, Washington, Idaho, and Texas gathered to learn and collaborate on creating an engaging and student-centered classroom that focuses on proficiency.  Major topics included creating proficiency-based assessments, pushing students to their next proficiency level, and using authentic resources to build literacy.  It’s been an informative and fun time for all.

Spanish: Flash Mob

Posted on:

The Spanish 3 classes spearheaded a flashmob at lunch today – a Wii U video to a song in Spanish – ‘Limbo.’  They were joined by Spanish 2 and 4 students, who also love doing this exercise video.  Spanish dance videos are great for learning vocabulary and incorporating movement into the school day.

WCHS Happenings: Spanish

Posted on:

 

Spanish 1 classes are presently learning about life in Spanish-speaking countries. In particular, foods, holidays and the general culture. In the past month two guest speakers have visited to talk about living in Spanish-speaking countries and their traditional foods.  The class is also working on conjugating new verbs, with didactic games often getting students up and out of their seat during class.

Below a few captured shots of ball pass hot seat as students test prep.
