La Casa de Bernarda Alba: Essentials

La Casa de Bernarda Alba: Essentials

8 Resources
Five types of resource I frequently use when teaching LCDBA including a new resource on symbolism. The grammar challenge is ideal for a starter and is linked to the A-Level specification, it includes simple/compound tenses, infinitive structures which take prepositions, present and past subjunctive. The quote cards come with a theme index to help with evidencing points made in essays. The flick PowerPoint seems to be a favourite and is a go-to for revision, starters, minutes that need to be filled. The symbolism reading and writing worksheet has proven popular. A free character analysis resource to track development over time and character effect in moving the plot forward. Includes a contrasting adjective worksheet for every character to be used in conjunction with the infinitive structures worksheet to begin writing evidence points relating to character traits. Infinitive structures and verbs worksheet which includes 40 verbs to sort by character which can be used to evidence points made in writing. A 15 page student book with reading activities to complete week by week to check comprehension of the plot as well as add to discussions about cultural differences and opinions. Also includes a peer testing section where students write ten questions at the end of each act for somebody else to answer. 1. Leave a review 2. Follow on Twitter @ollieMFL for updates! 3.

La Casa de Bernarda Alba: El simbolismo

La Casa de Bernarda Alba: El simbolismo

(0)
This is a scaffolded five page resource with a text at its heart which is laser-focused on the main symbols in La Casa de Bernarda Alba. On subsequent pages students are introduced to the what/how/why style of writing which leads to well-structured paragraphs, the language is given in English/Spanish with exam style questions and match-ups and a space for students to note down any symbolism references for future use. This year I am trying to move away from PEEL as a writing aid acronym and I want students to write more about the literary devices that authors use and their intended effect on the audience. By the end of this resource students will be able to say whether the author has used a simile, metaphor, repetition or simply a word, how they have used it and what the author wants us to question, understand, imagine or feel. This is taken from the QUIF acronym taught to me by the English department. I have designed this to be as usable as possible and I hope it strikes the balance between form and function.

The Spanish Republic and timeline of The Spanish Civil War (Spanish Civil War 2)

(0)
This is a follow up lesson to this where I explain the wants of several factions before the Civil War https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/precursor-to-the-spanish-civil-war-whole-lesson-12011242 In this lesson we start by looking back at each faction and classifying verb phrases according to who is most likely do them. Next we look at the timeline from 1931-1933 with an emphasis on the controversial changes made during The Spanish Republic. Students then see a list of these changes and need to manipulate them so that it seems as if they were reversed or written by the right. For example: ‘Vamos a permitir que las mujeres puedan llevar pantalones como los hombres’ might go to ‘no queremos que las mujeres lleven etc’ We move onto the years between 1934-1936 and CEDA/El Frente Popular which takes us to the outbreak of the war. This is not an exhaustive timeline, I have omitted a lot of factors which were equally decisive in the outbreak of the war but for time issues I have included the main points. There is a translation task involving the subjunctive (present an imperfect) and a homework task reporting on the Casas Viejas massacre which students will need to look up online. 1.

**This will potentially last several lessons depending on your students prior knowledge and ability to infer or research. Follow up lesson here on pre-war timeline and reforms: https://www.tes.com/teaching-resource/the-spanish-republic-and-timeline-of-the-spanish-civil-war-1931-1936-12013895 An introduction to all the main parties and factions involved in the Spanish Civil War and a rather big card sort activity which will give students a long time to consider how unsettled the political landscape was in Spain prior to the outbreak and how fragile it was during with some knowledge on the May Crisis needed. Included are facts, quotes, policies from the socialists, communists, anarchists, nationalists and the international brigades. The last task will assess how well students have understood the various factions and parties as they decide what party/faction a person will vote for or side with based on various character descriptions and personality traits. I rarely charge for resources but this has taken 9 hours to make, the result of years of reading and £100s worth of books bought as well as hours spent digesting them (so any factual errors let me know and I’ll apologise, amend, update and resend). Some teaching notes for clarity: George Orwell was not a communist but I have included his fighting with the POUM in the communist section as the POUM (Partido Obrero de Unificación Marxista) was formed by dissidents of the PCE and Orwell is a relatable name in what is quite a difficult unit to teach. Churchill is basically trying to say that the Communist Party took advantage of a failing Republican Parliament. 1. Leave a review 2. Follow on Twitter @ollieMFL for updates! 3. Buy me a coffee
