As the countdown is on for classes to resume, my district has made the decision to use distance learning to start the year. As a result, I’m working on adapting resources to function better in this altered environment. Thanks to Lisa McHargue’s influence, I started playing with Go Formative this spring and have decided to pilot it as a key component of online learning this year.
I also feel like we could use a positive beginning to this year, and Color Esperanza fits the bill. The original song is an oldie but goody 🙂 by Diego Torres. It was re-released this spring with an all-star cast of performers in order to raise funds for COVID relief in Latin America. I’ve taken activities like I would use in class and adapted them with Go Formative so that we can use it as one of our first week activities for Spanish 4/AP. You can get a copy of the module here. Feedback is always welcome & appreciated.

Wow, I didn’t realize they had remade this song and what a gift to share the GoFormative. I love that resource and plan to use it this year but I love seeing how you used it to create a unit/project integrated assignment. Thanks so much for sharing.
Thank you for your encouragement! Please let me know how it goes for you with your students.
