Teaching and

Learning Spanish

At Stowe Elementary School my students and I have used several "platforms" from which to organize our teaching and learning. The first was Spanish at Stowe, a website I created to which all students in Grades 3-5 would go. Then we used Duolingo as a base. Last year, 2017-18, year I created a website for each grade level. Using individual websites for each grade helps us connect to the classes' Units of Inquiry.

This year, 2018-19, we are experimenting with Microsoft Teams.
