Congratulations! You each get extra credit (not that you need it!) as well as you may select a recipient for a Kiva loan from me! Way to go!


Spanish 4 and 5 students created videos to promote specific borrowers from Kiva. The top 3 vote-getters will be able to choose a borrower for a $25, $75 and $100 loan from Señora Placido and will also receive extra credit!

Please vote for your favorite. You may decide the criteria for what makes it your favorite! 🙂 Check back soon for more links as they are turned in!

    Hi Kristy,

    I absolutely LOVE this project! It is clear that your students put a lot of effort into creating these videos, by the quality of their work. They all did a great job! I’m curious, did you teach a lesson leading up to this project? Do you have a rubric that you used? I’m an interested in doing something similar with my Spanish 3 class during the 2015-2016 school year. Any information you could provide would be so greatly appreciated!

      I just got a message on Facebook from one of the winners of this contest. She has decided to study abroad in Spain and wants to minor in Spanish! Yeah!

      I did teach a unit on microlending. I will be teaching it again this year and I will make an effort to get those items up on my blog soon!

      Thanks for commenting!

    My 7th and 8th grade students will be voting as an extra credit or enrichment activity, love this!

      Awesome! Thanks! Also I tried Hannah’s link and it opened for me? I am not sure what the deal is with that. I’ll try it again from home and see if it opens. Maybe she has her privacy settings on?
