Spanish Conversation and Composition's Full Profile
Each student participates in three group projects (PDF), delivered orally with web presentations supplemented by written reports. These projects (PDF) involve online research about the history, literature, art and music of Spanish-speaking countries, volunteer work in the community with Hispanic children and adults, and the creation of videotaped interviews.
