Spring Garden Waldorf Eighth graders are working with The University of Akron’s Service Learning Program to write a book for school children in Spain. The project is based on trying to connect globally with other Waldorf schools in Spanish speaking countries. Spanish teacher, Amy Fabre, contacted many Spanish speaking Waldorf schools and received a reply from a school in Spain.
Students, under the guidance of Ms. Fabre, are creating a cultural book, written in Spanish, including information about United States customs. The topics covered include school schedule and classes, food, celebrations and short biographies on each of the students in eighth grade.
The UofA students come once a week to weigh in on the topics and help edit what the younger students have written for the book.
