Summer Spanish Reading Club
Summer club. The WTMA Summer Spanish Reading Club is designed to keep Spanish students practicing their language skills and engaged in reading and discussion over the summer break. Students will come together with their instructor once a week to talk about that week’s reading and learn about the Spanish language and the countries around the world where it is spoken.
We offer two sections of Summer Spanish Reading Club. The Lower (Beginning-Intermediate) club is for students who have completed either Spanish I or Spanish II with the Well-Trained Mind Academy. Upper (Intermediate-Advanced) is appropriate for students who have completed Spanish III or higher.
There are no formal written assignments — class attendance and participation is the only requirement (in addition to reading the texts). Students who participate in all 8 sessions will receive a WTMA Summer Reading Club t-shirt. Participation credit is earned by attending the live class or by watching the recording of a class and then completing a discussion board response based on a prompt given by the instructor. You may find these prompts under “discussion board” on our course Blackboard page.
