Indian Hills teacher receives grant through Donors Choose

Congratulations to Indian Hills Spanish teacher Natalie Ries!

Natalie used the DonorsChoose.org  web site to post her classroom needs and desired project.  She was recently notified that Bank of the West in Clive funded her project.  She applied for 8 Sony ICD-PX312 digital recorders.

The recorders were recently received and she’s now excited to implement them in class.  The plan is to have students work in small groups of two or three people on speaking activities as well as individually on speaking goals.  They are able to record themselves, upload the recording to the computer, edit it, and then they will add them to their online Spanish portfolios.  The portfolios are arranged around Spanish “I can” statements and the recordings can be used as artifacts demonstrating their competency.

Congrats Natalie !
