Last Thursday I happened upon Miss Johnson and her Crew using Academic Crew time to consolidate Spanish language learning. As some students had previously studied town places, and others had focused on asking directions around town, Miss Johnson used the time to address misconceptions, e.g. “librería” means “bookshop” and not “library”, and to make literacy links, e.g. “carnicería’ = “butchers” – think “carnivore” and “carnivorous”.
What impressed me the most was the number of students that produced their completed Extended Study task for marking, that was only set last Tuesday and not due in till tomorrow. Bien hecho Señorita Johnson!
