Alicia R. Chacon Int’l School students share their expertise at conference

Middle school students from Alicia R. Chacon International School participated in the 20th anniversary of TNTc (Teachers Networking Technology & Content) conference by sharing their talents and expertise to area educators.

Their presentation, “ARC Middle School Students Create Tutorials for Third Grade Students and Parents,” was sponsored by foreign language teacher Natalia Tchoshanova.

The students demonstrated how they created short video and slide show tutorials for third grade students to make transition from paper and pencil language learning to a Chromebook language classroom smoother and successful.

In order to involve parents into their children’s learning, students make tutorials in two languages: Spanish and English.

Alicia R. Chacon opened its doors in 1995 as a dual language program for kinder to 2nd grade. It gradually added grade levels until reaching its current kinder through 8th enrollment.

According to the school’s website, Chacon International students are taught an enriched curriculum, which includes learning English, Spanish and either Chinese, German, Japanese or Russian. “Our goal is to ensure students learn to appreciate and respect other languages, cultures and all ethnic groups.”

This is the sixth year the school has participated at the TNTc Conference, which took place on November 2nd.
