Señor Phillips challenged his Spanish II students in their "vacation" unit this school year by having them design their own mock hotel websites. Students were given the basics of Google Site design and encouraged to be creative as they included room layouts, local attractions, and even maps of their travel destinations (all in Spanish-speaking countries, of course)! All of website text, menus and even self-made video "testimonials" were in Spanish and helped students exercise the vocabulary they had learned in this unit all while students learned basic webpage design. By teaming up with the Library Media Specialist, Señor Phillips also reinforced digital citizenship with web citation requirements.
