Gilberto's Teaching Style & Approach
How do you present material to students?
I present the textbook we use in the Spanish for Travelers class, “Spanish in 10 minutes a day.”
How do you interact / work with students?
I interact with students appropriately timely; I am friendly and professional for an approachable learning environment; I learn students’ names, and I respect the students and their abilities.
What kind of classroom dynamic do you promote?
In the lesson plan, I apply a classroom dynamic based on motivation and participation, emphasizing individual participation, small groups, teamwork, and experiential learning.
He explained structure and use of the Spanish language clearly and communicated well. I gained new knowledge and will be able to communicate with confidence when I travel.
