Quinceañeras in Mexico
Before this week's lab in CEP 416, if a student had approached me to help her look for images online about a project we were doing in class, in this case Quinceañeras in Mexico, I would have directed her to a few different websites that I have used in the past. For example, I have used Google Images, Yahoo Images, MSN Images, or just search the internet using the keyword 'images' to see what came up. This is what I have used in the past to search for images as well as where I have used to get images from. In regards to how to cite the images, the thought would have honestly not crossed my mind. I would not have mentioned to the student to cite their image at all. If she would have been adamant about citing, I would have said to list the website where she found it on. I am sorry to say that I have never cited an image source until I realized in this lab that it was actually considered stealing to use someone's image without their permission.
Since I'm leaving on June 15, 2008 to teach English as a Foreign Language in the Galapagos Islands, 600 miles off the coast of Ecuador, for two months, I thought it might be useful to find out the history of the islands and useful information cultural information that I could use to integrate myself into their culture and use in my teaching while I'm there. Searching on Google, I first entered: "Galapagos Islands" OR "Islas Galapagos" (as they are called in Spanish) so I could get a full listing of both English and Spanish websites available to me because I am able to read both languages fluently.
Hi! I'm a Spanish teacher. I have a strong passion to teach in an urban setting.
