On April 28th, students from Dr. Karina Vazquez's SPA201
Intermediate Spanish II performed two chapters of Don Quijote for Ms.
Miller's ESOL classroom at Humboldt School. Don Quijote's performance
allowed students to improve academically and as members of the
community. The combination of theater and Service Learning reinforced
the five areas of language learning: communication, cultures,
connections, comparisons, and communities. Particularly in this last
one, since students worked on a better understanding of the cultural and
social issues regarding Spanish in their community.
Some students in Ms. Miller's class that came from Edison School
remembered MWSU's performance of Alfonsina Storni at Edison. They had
been looking forward to see theater in Spanish again, and participated
actively in this new performance.
Karina wants to thank Dr. Eduardo Castilla Ortiz, who went to cheer the
students as they handled the difficult task of operforming two plays
totally in Spanish!!!
