Last year, for the first time, I taught an intensive two-week pre-college Spanish summer course at Marist College. In designing the course I set out to produce a 21st century Spanish composition and conversation course. In the class students discussed global issues, enhanced their media and information literacy skills, explored Hispanic culture in their local environment and conversed with native speakers of Spanish on-line. The experiment was a success and Marist will again offer Spanish for the 21st Century this summer from July 10th- July 23d. The college has also put together a video of the class in preparation of this summer’s enrollment. If you want to know more, please send me your questions or comments or watch this interview with one of the students who took the course last year. If you know a high-school student wishing to earn 3 college credits in Spanish this summer, send them to the Marist site to enroll or please have them contact me with any questions.
