Students in Octavo have been working hard this year at composing original narratives in Spanish. We have practiced a modified version of Writer’s Workshop where students conference with me individually to discuss their work. Along the way, we reflect on the process. Above is a map of a class discussion about the special challenges of writing in Spanish. Students’ writing becomes more nuanced and creative with each grammar or vocabulary concept that they add to their repertoire! Below is the first slide of a keynote presentation in the form of a Choose Your Own Adventure story. This student asked the reader to choose the best house for his family.
