HOTTD as a topic for Tom Crowley's Spanish final exam
For the past two semesters, I’ve taken evening Spanish classes at a local High School. For this semester’s final, we had to do a three minute talk.
They say you should write about what you know. So, as my topic, I submitted Therapy Dog work. In Spanish, that’s “terapia con perros”. My instructor was very enthusiastic about the topic.
Between ATD and HOTTD resources, I had a wealth of information to help me with my presentation. I narrowed it down into a three minute overview, and decided to request permission to bring “a visual aid”, my dog Rocky. Again, my instructor was very supportive.
So, on the night of the final, Rocky and I walked to the front of the class. I instructed him “siéntese” (sit down). Rocky proudly showed his understanding of the Spanish language, and we sailed through our final together.
Most of the other folks in the class were teachers and school administrators. At the end of the evening, two of them made inquiries on how to get Rocky and some friends into their school for Final Exam week. More on that as it develops….
