Spanish AP students went on a field trip today, November 27, to visit San Jose State University’s exhibit on the literary works of accomplished Spanish writer Isabel Allende. On the trip, students heard a dramatic reading of Tosca, one of her short stories, and met the writer in person.
“It was cool because we all read her stories, and today we were finally able to meet and talk to her,” junior Alec Aaron said. “It’s always cool to meet somebody famous.”
About 30 students from teacher John Allen’s Spanish AP students and teacher Kim Hanley’s Spanish 4 students attended the field trip.
The trip was meant to enhance the literary curriculum of the class, which had read short stories by Allende the week before. The crowded exhibit also gave the students opportunities to practice their Spanish language skills.
