· About Rut ·
Rut García Lázaro is an English teacher at our high school. What leads Rut to carry out this outstanding project was the concern both teachers and students had revolving the pandemic. The most important thing was to stay safe and healthy, of course.
After watching multiple videos, reports, debating and speaking about the topic, how to prevent catching the virus, how it spread and what recommendations the UN had, she mixed the idea of raising awareness with the most common media for these: advertisements. The ads Rut found were either too chilldish or too formal, until she came up with the idea to have us creating something more appealing for people of our age.
The outcome was astonishing. Her 1º ESO students made posters, and her 1º Bachillerato ones had the chance to choose between a video or a poster. Rut was amazed by how many videos came out.
Rut was very pleased with the result, and even though she hopes the topic does not revolve around a global pandemic, she will repeat this activity with her future students.
