Proficiency Exam 2BTu sala de clases

We have a new student in our school from a Spanishspeaking country, and the student is visually impaired. The student has asked you to describe the classrooms where the two of you have class together so he/she can find the things he needs. It can be any classroom(not the gym) where you have class, except this one. You must describe the room in detail (where it is in the schoolwhich pod, what its near and the room number), and describe in detail where 8 different items are in the room. You will take at least three pictures, during 8th hour, of the classroom you have chosen to describe and use them to guide your description, as if you were in the room itself describing it. A peer will serve as the blind student who is listening to your description. If your description is detailed and accurate and he or she can easily understand you,youve accomplished the task! You may not use notes. Would you use notes in real life? No! Una sala de clases! Una cmara! divertido!
