The Fulbright grant is completed... Now what?
Although my Fulbright grant has been completed a few months back, the work doesn't stop. In fact, it looks like it's just starting. Two weeks ago, my fellow teachers and I got together for the whole day to go through two units I created while in Chile, to sort through books and materials I brought back, and to match them up the best we can with our current Spanish curriculum.
Oh, what fun...
We spent the day reading to each other, using strategies I learned from Chilean teachers, unpacking the books to extract grammar and culture points, and working on a timeline for implementation. When we looked at the clock, it was time to go home. And we barely scratched the surface of this project!
Looking for fellow teachers...
