Students will complete a reflection (either in their blogs, as a video on their YouTube channel, in their journals, etc.) in which they will address the following questions:
What am I most proud of?
I am most proud of how I demonstrated dedication and was capable of motivating myself to go to Ms.Hill outside class to get extra help with revising conjugations, unit vocabulary and to go over the rules of conjugating irregular nouns so that I won’t forget how to use various conjugations (also using the subjunctive) when it comes to writing . In addition, I was able to ask Ms.Hill new words which I did not understand, without feeling embarrassed.
Do I consider myself a Spanish-speaker? Why or why not?
I do consider myself a Spanish-speaker, since I am able to speak conversational Spanish and am capable of clearly understanding audio (others’ conversation) and knowing the theme/purpose of the dialogue. Although I’m not a fluent speaker, I am aiming to be one in near future.
What would I do differently if I could do the course again?
If I could re-do the same course, I would have spent more time on revising over pronouns and conjugation rules and subjunctive use, because I struggled a lot with keeping up during class when we were revising conjugations as a class.
What are three concrete actions I can take to ensure that I am prepared for Spanish B next year?
For next year, I could:
- Be organised and revise during summer (study/revise: conjugations, irregulars, use of pronouns and major unit vocabulary/nouns) using resources such as padlet, quizlet, conjugmenos, colby, etc. (recursos on her blog!)
- Read some texts (various format) on the booklet and practice answering questions (+ revise and go through all booklets given – study from it; if useful)
- Practice writing in different writing formats. Eg: Article, newspaper, etc. (To clarify and learn how all writing formats work + its structures)
