Question Detail

ok, I've been teaching for over 30 years...i look young...anyway...the whole educational classroom approach has changed drastically and i am trying to get a grasp of this "interactive student-centered classroom" approach...I teach high school Spanish I, IIIHonors and..i want to be innovative, dynamic, keep them focused...not on me but in the actual process of developing their speaking skills and appreciating cultural aspects, etc....i have tons of lesson plans...tweeked or not...i still want it to be where students are the focal part of the ever-evolving dynamic in learning Spanish...i guess, what i'm trying to say, apart from games, games and more games,interactive Spanish websites, songs and such...how can I get THEM to do the work and not me....I present, they copy or practice..but there's more and I know it....need some developing structural approaches that are more 2016 and not 1985 :)

      Have you thought about saying pen-pals? Find another Spanish class (somewhere else in the country) and reach out to have conversations or learn from one another.
