SPANISH CLASS COURSE DESCRIPTIONS 2017 2018

An OWL inspired Classroom – OWL (Organic World Langauge) 

The OWL method is a foreign language teaching model that focuses on language proficiency through movement, immersion (all in Spanish), and a student driven classroom with individual goals and an emphasis on personal growth. I adopted this method last October after much frustration at the level of my student’s oral communication skills. My goal now as a World Language Instructor is to make sure my students are working towards useful communication.   I’d like them to be able to listen and speak with native speakers with ease.  As a child we learn to speak through listening, reading and constant interaction.  As a toddler we speak with mistakes but we speak.  My goal is for the students to just speak in Spanish and over time, much like a child does, they will absorb the new language and begin to grow in proficiency.  At first they will make mistakes, those mistakes are growth they are not a negative.  We’ve all said or heard someone say “I took French/Spanish/German in high school and I can’t speak a word”.  This is a phrase I hope to never hear again coming from my students.  This teaching method is incredibly interactive and students are expected to give their all during class time, it can be exhausting for students at times but ultimately rewarding when they realize that they can successfully communicate in another language.
