ROP Video Production at Harbor High School Collaborates with Spanish for Spanish Speakers 2 to Present: El Día E
Every June 21st, the Cervantes Institute, a Language School in Spain, hosts El Día E—a special day of celebration for those who speak Spanish anywhere in the world. Since school is not in session during the summer solstice, Harbor High School teacher Anne Cappiello changed the date of the celebration for her students to coincide with Hispanic Heritage Month, which runs from September 15th through October 15th. The students in Spanish for Spanish Speakers 2 begin the school year with a unit on identity and language and what it means to live their lives between two worlds. One assignment is the "favorite word" speech competition, where students must speak to the class for two minutes persuading the class to vote for their most compelling word. After the votes are tallied, the winner is announced and goes home with the prize—a dictionary!
