Description

In the secondary Spanish classroom, students struggle to acquire literacy given the mandatory requirement to take Spanish and the prescribed curriculum. Educators who incorporate authentic texts into their academic teaching find these texts improve student literacy and engagement. In this qualitative self-study of student teaching, I explored how to successfully integrate authentic texts in the Spanish classroom as well as what the benefits of including these texts. Based upon student feedback, field notes, and research, I discovered authentic resources positively impacted student language comprehension as well as conversational Spanish.
