Students don’t have to learn EVERYTHING from their teacher.
Challenge: Make your next lesson one with NO teaching! Lead students to the right places and let them learn independently!
Check out great AUTHENTIC websites like www.elcorteingles.es that show the language IN CONTEXT! Use it at the beginning of a shopping or clothing unit.

Plus, great opportunties to discuss currency differences and compare and contrast Spanish vs. American culture!
SHOPPING ONLINE – it’s hands-on, real world, and FUN!
Add a graphic organizer to help them out.
