These are some ideas from K-12 teachers on how to integrate this site into their classes:

  • This site could help introduce students to international perspectives and to develop cultural understanding. It could also be useful to create awareness of the types of work that are available according to language proficiency and overall educational level.
  • These interviews could be used to have student s compare their own experiences to those of the interviewees.
  • At an elementary level, students could describe a day in the life of one of the interviewees.
  • The videos could be used to have students compare accents and culture
  • Students could be asked to compare immigration during the 1950's and 2006
  • This site could help dispel stereotypes about Spanish-speaking immigrants, by asking students to explain what kinds of professions they would expect Hispanic immigrants to have.
  • It could also help to improve listening skills and pronunciation.
  • If students are asked to make a similar project, they could become involved with their community.
