Mrs. Johnson’s Spanish 3 class recently read “El tiempo borra” by Javier de Viana in which Viana introduces the reader to the gaucho Indalecio who, after fifteen years of prison, is returning home to his wife and his land.
The class was divided into groups to create their own creative videos of this story. The students had fun creating the videos and even more fun watching each other’s videos! They were able to use this alternative assessment as a way to not only show their understanding of the story, but also their developing language skills and a variety of other special skills such as creative writing, acting, video production, and more.
