New Spec - Social Issues - Spanish AQA GCSE Vocab Flicker - Great Revision Resource!

GCSE Social Issues - A self-flicking Powerpoint Presentation which has taken the vocabulary from the New AQA Spanish Specification. Great Revision tool which has the translation on the notes to support with the wording AQA use in the Specification, but also if a non-Spanish specialist is running key interventions for revision. It starts and stops with ‘S’ and to come out of it you need to press ‘esc.’ Vocabulary is collated into Foundation and Higher so it can be paused easily for different abilities.

Don't mention the [Spanish Civil] War

Between 1975 and the 1990s el pacto del olvido [Pact of Forgetting] meant that Spanish people did not discuss the events in Spain from 1936-9. This lesson looks at the reasons behind these events.

La Guerra Civil (planeando el golpe de estado)

La Guerra Civil (planeando el golpe de estado)

1) Put the conversation in order 2) Put the correct English next to the messages in Spanish. This provides a good timeline for the coup d'etat. The conversations were made by a Spanish newspaper, once I remember I'll put the credit in.

Carta del Frente de Aragón

Carta del Frente de Aragón

Una carta del frente de Aragón: Los alumnos identifican que las palabras en negrillo son verbos y contestan a las preguntas. Recomiendo que vean una parte de la película 'Tierra y Libertad' de Ken Loach o el documental 'The Spanish Civil War' de Granada antes de leer el texto.
