Thanks to Magdalena Merbilhaá of Red Cultural, two weeks ago I started my school visits! I visited Colegio Santa Ursula, an all girls school, located in Vitacura, a very nice neighborhood of Santiago.
Facilitated by Andrea Mata and Karen Julio (both specialists in castellano) of Santa Ursula, I observed multiple events, starting from creative writing class in 3rd grade, and ending with real world issues debate in 12th grade. In addition, I observed a "cuentacuentos" or story time performed by a librarian for 3rd grade class. I also had the priceless opportunity to ask questions, browse around the library, take pictures of their bulletin boards (so inspiring!) and attend author presentations.
I hope my collaboration with Santa Ursula continues and I could visit a few more times before I come back home in July.
