Our goal was to develop a map that showed Mexicos different culture regions for Mrs. James Spanish classroom at Huntsville High School. Our task was to develop a two dimensional map providing a clear understanding of the major regions of Mexico.
The NWACC outcomes that we based out project on are: Gaining a greater awareness of cultural prospective, Learning to work together as a team. The course outcomes that we based out project on are: Beliefs and opinions. Self as a learner and future teacher.
The first day of working on our project we did some research on what we could do for Mrs. James considering she wanted a map of Mexico that was larger than the one she was trying to use now. We decide to do map a 2- dimensional map of Mexico that was the size of a shower curtain. We then made our proposal for Dr. Ryel to approve of our project. Now it was time to plan what to put on the map and do some shopping.
For day 2 we decided to do some research. We began by talking with Mrs. James, getting a Spanish book from her and going to the NWACC library. We looked through books to find important facts about Mexico and interesting places that were of importance.
For day 3 we ventured to Wal- Mart for some supplies. We contemplated for a while on rather or not to do the map on a shower curtain or to use a bamboo window curtain. After a while we decided on the bamboo. Then we had to get some material to make the cut out of Mexico and we also had to get some spray adhesive to make it stick to the bamboo. After shopping we went home and began to cut out the outline of Mexico.
Time for some more research to figure out where to put the boundary lines for the culture regions.
On day 5 we did a little more shopping and then it was back home to get to work on the map. We got most of the map done today and got the letters cut out to use for the title and the capitol city. We included Cancun and the beach, the day of the dead, and major cities that were of importance to Mexico and to Mrs. James.
Today we made some last minute fixes to the map and began on the PowerPoint for the web site. We also began the brochure for our classroom. In addition to this we set a day to deliver the project to Mrs. James. We are so happy with the outcome of the map and cant wait to present it to the school.
Today, April 29 th 2008, we presented our project to Mrs. James at Huntsville High School. She loved it! It felt so good to see her smile as much as she did. Finished!!!
We feel we have learned a lot from doing this Impacts Project. We have a better understanding of working as a team and what it feels like to accomplish something wonderful. We feel as though we have done something great for our community and we have gained a lot of experience from the schools and ourselves from this project. To put it plain and simple, WE LOVED IT!!
