Hola, soy Margaret. Estoy en mi último año en la Universidad de Illinois. Estoy estudiando patología de habla y lenguaje y también, español. Empecé a aprender español en la escuela secundaria. Después de escuela secundaria, decidí que quería continuar aprendiendo el idioma en la universidad. En la universidad, tenía muchas experiencias increíbles con aprender el español. Primero, era un voluntario en Champaign Early Childhood Center en un aula de todos niños hispanohablantes por un semestre. Segundo, viajé a Granada y viví con una familia hispana.

Día 1, Semana 3 Today was another active class. Students had to get up and change partners frequently. To form partners, I usually go around the room and count. If I have 20 students and want them to work in pairs, I count students until 10 and then count another ten. Then I say, "Uno con uno, dos con dos, etc." This ensures that students work with many other students, not just the ones they tend to sit with.

1. 3 minutes. In pairs, talk about your community partners, orientation and any work that you have already started doing. (As they talked to each other, I was able to follow up with a few students who haven't yet completely figured out their CSL work.)

2. 5 minutes. In groups of three, talk about your reactions and questions about the book reading tha…
