American students revise Spanish “for” or “against” essays

Alternative education students of Odessa, TX revised essays of students from Instituto de Educación Secundaria IES Prado Mayor in Totana, Murcia, Spain under the advisorship of Mrs. Aranzazu Mouriño Loretto. Students from Spain explained if they were for or against technology, plastic use, or mainstream media, under very catchy topic titles: “Where is My Charger,” “No Straw, Please,” and “Too Mainstream.” Just like any other countries, Spain and U.S.A. do not only benefit but also suffer from the effects of technology, plastic use, and media. Some of the societal realities Spanish students discussed were cyberbullying, fraud, plastic pollution, marine hazard, harassment, fake news, and many others. Common advice Spanish students gave was to use technology, plastic, and media wisely and in moderation. Alternative Education students revised the essays using ARMS strategy. The activity was a good revising and editing practice for the Alternative Education students in preparation for their statewide testing in English.
