Spanish at Staley

AMERICUS — Spanish is a new class offering to Staley Middle School students this year, but upon entering the class you would think students had been speaking Spanish for much longer. The eighth-grade students enter the classroom and Spanish is virtually the only language spoken. Shown are eighth-grade students in a performance task which includes a restaurant scene with one student being the server and the other the guest. The server welcomes the guest and provides a menu written in Spanish, from which the meal is ordered. All dialogue is in Spanish and once the order is taken the server must go retrieve the food items and serve them to the guest. Seated is Madison Simmons and the server is Jazzmine Austin. Villalta Sapp is the Spanish teacher.
