Wednesday afternoon, I had an epiphany. My Spanish 1 students were ready for a Bio Poem. As an English teacher, I've always enjoyed the Bio Poem assignment. I've learned so much about my students. After 8 months of hard study, my Spanish 1 students were ready for the same thing. I quickly translated the directions into Spanish.
My home students loved the assignment - even though they complained. I noticed that there was a lot of thought going on the paper.
I ended my day in Red Lake Falls. I brought out the assignment. I heard a few snickers.
"Mrs. Aakhus, we are doing the same thing in English class. Our teacher just assigned us this today."
