from Pamela Parks

Pamela Parks is the World Languages Department Chair at Cedarcrest High School in beautiful Washington State. She teaches French, Spanish, Japanese, and is very involved in the Duolingo Educator’s Network. She also has a book coming out soon, The Sink in the Kitchen: An Eclectic Approach to Teaching Language. “Madame Sensei,” as she is known to her students, turned to Pixton to give her students another way to express themselves as they are learning language. During our Remote Teaching adventure, Pixton became her go-to for most summative assessments.

Places In The House

Students will practice vocabulary “at home” through the creation of an “Around the House” comic.

World Languages Introductions

This comic will introduce students to 1. Basic greetings, 2. How to use Pixton, 3. How to use the Input Method Editor (keyboard) of the target language.

Student Interview

Students will practice the skills being learned in class by creating I-statements in the language being learned.
