Hi everyone! I'm a 9th grade Spanish 1 teacher at an innovative, project- and inquiry- based school in Philadelphia. First of all, I'm so excited I found this forum, and I've already gotten many ideas from the various threads (muchas gracias!).
I've previously taught language in a traditional context, and I'm really excited to use inquiry and PBL, but I'm concerned about balancing complex and engaging content with level-appropriate vocab and grammar. How have other teachers managed this tension? Maybe it hasn't even been an issue? And how have you managed this in relation to creating an immersion environment?
