Meadowbrook Field Trip

The Meadowbrook class visited ACC South Austin Campus for a tour of the library.  The city bus was an adventure, and one of the campus highlights was the art department's Frida Kahlo portrait in the 2nd-floor hallway.

Digital Storytelling 2015

Both the Meadowbrook and South Austin classes created digital stories for their summer project. Not only did they have to write, edit, select images, and narrate their stories, but they also had to learn Windows Moviemaker 2012 at the same time.  Only two students—one in each class—came to the project with computer expertise.  However, all the students plunged into the project wholeheartedly, and those who finished early helped others.  I hope you enjoy their stories as much as I do.

TESOL 2015 Conference in Toronto

Every year Teachers of English to Speakers of Other Languages (TESOL) has an international conference for new ideas and inspiration, sharing ideas with other teachers, and talking to publishers to find the latest and greatest materials for ESL teaching.  This year's conference was held in Toronto, Canada, March 26–28.  As always, it was extremely rewarding.  As always, I always come home exhausted but absolutely grateful for the opportunity to have gone.
