In my 6th grade exploratory class, I was tasked with offering SP, FR, LA, GE in one quarter. I am working my way through how to offer these 4 languages in a non-threatening way but to still have assessments and grades. We are working on using the ACTFL can-do statements as assessment. Also, I am head coordinator of our ski club and we bring 150 students to Pat's Peak. Finally, my advisory collects/counts Box Tops to earn money for our school.
