Christina Barnum invited us into her freshmen biology class. They used Socrative as a self-assessment tool before starting a lab. Socrative engaged the students because it provided instant feedback on content that would be needed to complete the lab.
Carmen Ruiz-Bergman invited us into her AP Spanish class. They were discussing and learning about the commonalities and differences between Halloween and Dia de los muertos. Students had studied the traditions of Día de los Muertos, but did not really know the history behind Halloween. Therefore they were asked to research and record their findings in Notability in order to write a cultural comparison between the target culture and their community. Some of the pieces they looked at were:
A. la historia
B. la corrida
C. la tumba / los cementerios
D. "Trick or Treat"
