1.  Sra. Welles referred our class to a friend who needs translation
    help with the Chesterfield County Senior Connections, The Capital
    Area Agency on Aging.  I feel this is a good opportunity for our
    class to reach out and help the Hispanic Community in the Richmond
    Metropolitan Area.  Our task is to translate to Spanish their 
    program brochure.  With that said, I want you to divide up in to
    groups of 2-3, and decide how to share the work load on this
    flyer of two pages, and then work on the translation of your 
    section(s).  You will have all class period Monday and Friday to
    complete this task.  I would also like for someone to format the
    entire document upon completion of the translations.  I will proof
    the document, and then send to the Agency where a native speaker
    on staff will review the final document.
    This task will be graded as a test, and you will be assessed on work
    effort (50%) and accuracy of translation (50%).  You may use any on-
    line references to help, but do not simply google translate the 
    entire section, of course!
    You will receive the handouts and instructions in class on Monday,
    2/22, and then get started with organization and translations
    immediately.....

----NOTE!! I RECEIVED THIS MESSAGE FROM SRA. WELLES. LET'S DO THIS!!
If you read an earlier email, I mentioned that we will be partnering with
a new program while in Guatemala that is also working on developing a library
and focused on encouraging education in the indigenous communities. The
couple in charge of this program also run a language school � Jabel Tinamit
Language School in Panajachel and they are the only Mayan descendants to own
and operate a language school in the region and are very much interested in
helping their communities. I would like to start a book drive next week, a
friendly competition between our classes to see who can bring in the most
books, to take to Candelaria for the new library they are building. The books
need to be in Spanish � children�s book from early readers to young adult.

Language School in Panajachel and they are the only Mayan descendants to own

helping their communities. I would like to start a book drive next week, a
