The Alhambra WebQuest

The Alhambra WebQuest

Students will complete a general knowledge quiz prior to investigating the Alhambra. The idea behind the quiz is not to demonstrate a lack of student knowledge, but rather to show how varied the history of a particular monument, building or site can really be. The quiz in section 1 along with the questions in section 2 will help build a general overview of the Alhambra and aid them in their choice for their presentation. These sections will hopefully highlight curiosities rather than just the basic facts about the Alhambra, which may be helpful in the presentation phase. In the presentation phase students should be encouraged to present minimal written text on their slides. They are taking the role of a tour guide and should try to develop a presentation to reflect this. They should be reminded that the best tour guides weave a story rather than presenting just the basic facts. They should draw on sections 1 & 2 for ideas of the type of curiosities which might appeal to tourists. The strictness of the presentation guidelines can be decided by the individual teacher, taking into consideration the ability and knowledge of their students. Note though this is primarily designed for students who are older and have a good command of ‘English’ it can be modified for native speakers as well as those students who are learning about Spain and who are studying Spanish. Student should be encouraged to cite sources and provide a bibliography. The video is for information only and does not form any direct content

Creative Storytelling Speaking/Writing

Creative Storytelling Speaking/Writing

Picture description can be rather boring after some time and it occurred to me that usually, the pictures are not very creative. I came up with an idea how to spice it up a bit. The pictures in this activity are unusual, imaginative and I hope they will spark some entertaining stories. I recommend to use it with students 16+, it best works with young adults. It could be used with stronger Intermediate students, Upper Intermediate and Advanced. As a variation, you can use it as writing prompts.
