Teach Jeff Spanish
This week's Discovery Educator Network newsletter mentioned that Chris Craft and his Spanish students are involved in an online project to help Animal Planet's Jeff Corwin improve his Spanish. The students had watched a series of Unitedstreaming video clips, where Corwin visited Central and South American countries and joked about how little Spanish he knows. One of Craft's students spoke up and said the class should teach Corwin some Spanish!
Read an article about the project from Education World and take a look at the web site the students designed to help Corwin improve his Spanish.
I'll bet Craft's kids learned more Spanish from this project than Jeff Corwin. What a great way to demonstrate student learning. As we've heard many times, you don't know if you understand something until you try to teach it to someone else!
