**With every picture, students have to make a choice! **They visit Teotihuacán virtually.
Why a photo-essay instead of a video?
I could have very easily made a video on my recent trip to Teotihuacán. But I didn´t. I wanted this to be a participatory exercise, a CI resource. Active, not passive.
The photo-essay is specifically aimed at Spanish learners at the Beginners 2 level.
Every image has a prompt to make it an active experience. If I had chosen a video, it would be passive viewing and that is what I wanted to avoid.
What do young people do when they visit Teotihuacán? They climb the pyramids. They race around and climb up and down, bursting with excitement, legs hurting from the many steps, often sunburned and always eager to buy trinkets from the vendors.
I have focused on subir / bajar and comprar / vender.
