Experiential Module

clear

Here you will find a various pieces of evidence from my Experiential Module or independent study course work. During the summer of 2014 I completed two CLEAR summer workshops at Michigan State University. These workshops were: Rich Internet Applications for Language Learning on July 17th-19th, 2014 and Using Authentic Materials in all Levels of Foreign Language Classes on July 24th-26th, 2014. These were both three day intensive workshops, which offered an in-depth approach to these teaching practices and a hands-on experience in creating materials. I chose these specific workshops so that I could work on technology aspects of language teaching with Rich Internet Applications and teaching culture through authentic materials. Therefore, the purpose of this module was for me to develop materials and skills in these two particular areas. As a whole, this experience has greatly impacted my teaching and students learning opportunities in my Spanish classroom.

Below I have included a reflective essay on my experiences and knowledge I gained by completing this module. Additionally, I have included links the activities that I have created, as well as two voice-narrated PowerPoint presentations teaching about these two topics.
