Spanish Community Service Learning Opportunities for 4th Semester Students

SPAN 142 students: here are your service learning opportunities.
by Ann Abbott

International Prep Academy

Thursday, October 15

The International Prep Academy is doing an event on the evening of October 15th to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month. We are looking for some help in crowd control at the school and possibly setting up and making sure everything is running. I was wondering if it would be possible to advertise the event to your classes for students who want more volunteer hours. There will be food and entertainment, and I know the event last year was really successful.

My name is Nelly Alcala and I am a parent and vice president of our PTA at International Prep Academy in Champaign. My son is in Kat Kolumban's class and she mentioned that you have a class in which your students need to do volunteer hours. Our school is dual language and I think your students would make a good fit. We have a second annual event at our school in 2 weeks on Thursday October 15th and would need volunteers anywhere from 4:30-7:30pm. Please contact me via email or cell at 708-466-2675 to see if this is a possibility. I'd like to work with your students in the future for any other events as well.

Thank you, 
Nelly


Parent-Teacher Conferences at Champaign Central High School


Dear Dr. Abbott,

We are once again in need of volunteers to help with Spanish translating during our parent teacher conferences next month.  Last spring your student’s help was a godsend.

I am hoping you can help us out again this semester?  Our conferences are Thursday, October 29th from 5:00pm to 8:00pm and Friday, October 30th from 8:00am to 12:00pm.  If you know anyone who might be interested in helping, please have them email me at stratejo@champaignschools.org or call me at 217-351-3911. 

Thank you in advance for ANY assistance you can send my way…..

Reflection

After attending and participating in the community service event, please complete the following reflection exercise.

1.   Write a minimum of 400 words, double-spaced, using one-inch margins and Times New Roman, 12 point font.
2.   Write in English.
3.   Write a strong title.
4.   Within the reflection, cover all three of the following points. You don’t have to answer these specific questions; they are here to guide your thinking.
a.   What? Describe what you did in the community. Include relevant details. These can include dialogue, descriptions, anecdotes, etc.
b.   So what? Analyze what you saw and heard. What did you learn? What questions did your experience raise for you? What concerned you? Was anything you have learned in this or other classes pertinent to this experience?
c.   Now what? Now that you have used your Spanish in this kind of community setting, what does that change? Will you seek out more opportunities of this kind? Does this make you want to continue with your language learning? Did you notice any particular strengths or weaknesses of yours that you could work on?
5.   The reflection is due the last day of classes (before final exams). However, it is best to complete the reflection while the experience is still fresh in your mind.
