1st introduction to key characters,  Raimunda, Paula and Sole - PPT and worksheet

1st introduction to key characters, Raimunda, Paula and Sole - PPT and worksheet

I used this for an introduction to the main characters and we used it to start getting to know Raimunda, Paula and Sole. We looked at 3 clips - the cemetery, the discovery of Paco's body and the 'confession of Paula' scene , also the following scene where Raimunda cleans up the kitchen. We didn't have time for the other slides but I will save them for another lesson. Students were given the PPT presentation so that they take notes next to the photos. We discussed the answers to the questions and then students were able to go onto the worksheet where they were able to put their ideas in such a way to begin expressing opinions, while referring to scenes and offering some initial analysis. The homework was to write up a description of one of the characters. Hope it works for you and your students!

Activities to practise talking about LAS MUJERES EN VOLVER

Activities to practise talking about LAS MUJERES EN VOLVER

I thought I'd share these activities which worked well with my group. The vocab was a starter and we played memory games to try and retain those words. Then moved onto the QUIZ/Bingo game to see what they could remember from last lesson which was an introduction to key characters. Students used the new words. The game can be played as a 3/4 in a Row game with points available for each square successfully answered, 3 points for 3 in a Row and 4 points for 4 in a row. Students could 'steal' a square if they gave a better answer. Then onto the clips to get more information about other female characters. The table helped them to structure their information. Homework was to write the table in a mini essay form. Hope this is some use to you!
