Abstract

The main goal of this project was to narrow the gap between classroom instruction and real-life. This was accomplished by engaging each student in meaningful real-life application of subjects taught in class. Students of Spanish 202 learned the concept of commands, and related it to the various problems that surround us. Work was primarily focused on family, friends, the community, and the environment. Students selected a variety of issues such as drug abuse, domestic violence, depression, child abuse, alcoholism, bullying, healthy eating, addictions to video gaming, etc. After conducting research on the issues, they developed possible solutions and used the knowledge acquired in class to advise others on how to deal with these problems and where to find help. The project highlighted each student’s creativity along with their analytical capabilities. Through this in-class project-based learning activity, they applied their knowledge of the language using a visual display that was presented to the class.
