Grade 10 Spanish Students at Takoma Radio
Recently, some Grade 10 Spanish students had the opportunity to take a trip to the Takoma Radio (WODW-LP) station in Takoma Park, MD. They were guests of Marika Partridge, a former WIS parent, who works at the station. WIS Upper School Spanish teacher Ana Andura explains that the purpose of the trip was “to demonstrate to students that the radio is still a vibrant channel for communication in democracy, where all groups can feel represented and have a voice.” While there, they had the opportunity to speak on the air - in Spanish! One group talked about the freedom of expression and the press in relation to a novel they had read, Story of a Shipwrecked Sailor by Gabriel García Márquez. The second group discussed different itineraries they created for getting to know Washington, DC. Want to hear what they had to say? Take a listen here!
