How Do We Alleviate Stress-Story Telling
This month, we practiced our story-telling skills by watching a short animation titled Jinxy Jenkins and Lucky Lou. Since the video had no sound, we had to push ourselves to explain what was happening in Spanish. This activity required us to practice conjugating in various tenses, including imperfect and subjunctive. Although it took us several class periods (and a whole lot of patience) to master the story, we eventually were able to come around and create our own transcript of the story. This process encouraged us to use what we had learned and put the new vocabulary and tenses to produce an original story.
Activities Involving Stress Relief
As new vocabulary has been added to our spanish mindset, we began to expand beyond the focus of what individuals do to enjoy life. Aiming at the idea of alleviating stress, we practiced many activities and associated those activities through many acts of entertainment. For instance, we played the song, I Feel Alive, and danced to the beat and rhythm. Alongside, we began to look abroad our individual desires and success’ at obtaining a stress free life, and focused on how others relieve their stress. Two days that were dedicated to alleviating stress was the video on helpful ways to alleviate stress. This video of the two women giving their viewers multiple steps/actions to alleviate stress, focused on what the majority do to discard stress. One example they talked about was going for a walk and practicing meditation. Meditation to many classmates does not work, but being listed as a top priority to many, indicates that it does help. All in all, not only did we learn vocabulary outside our prior learning and associated with stress, we also learned many new ways to relax and alleviate ourselves, something that is very important to many students in their junior year.
This is the activity that allowed us to learn multiple ways of alleviating stress from Spanish-speaking mentors. Although the two women spoke at a rapid pace, their strategies at promoting stress relief were reliable by helping us learn new vocabulary and giving us professional advice.

World Happiness Report 2015
In order to prepare for the major entrepreneur project, the students of Spanish IV had to investigate the happiest Latin American colonies in the world. Topping the list with Costa Rica and ending with Uruguay, we were able to learn what makes those countries the happiest eco-friendly places in Latin America and eventually why those countries earned that desirable title.
