El terrorismo / ETA - Terrorism in Spain

El terrorismo / ETA - Terrorism in Spain

Context of looking at global issues. A powerpoint outlining the origins of ETA in Spain and their purpose, goes along with a reading comprehension. This is based on an article I found on El Mundo and adapted. The questions I've designed to go with the comprehension are based around exam style reading papers and include finding synonyms / translation and putting ideas into your own words. Hope it helps! :)

El paro / El desempleo (Work and Unemployment in Spain)

El paro / El desempleo (Work and Unemployment in Spain)

A series of 3 lessons I've made on unemployment. Powerpoint 1 outlines the economic crisis in Spain and how unemployment levels rose during the recessions. It has a video / listening comprehension at the end, with a youtube video (hyperlink included). At the end it says 'worksheet' - but this is a worksheet I downloaded from someone else off TES so has not been included as part of this resource. Powerpoint 2 is 'Have I got News For You' themed using articles / titles of articles taken from EL PAIS the week this lesson was done (Jan/Feb 2016). Some are a bit of fun/ silly, then they lead on to things which are more related to unemployment in spain & the work place. There is also a video comprehension at the end about whether 2015 has been a good year for Spain's labour market. Powerpoint 3 is based solidly around the Sigue A2 book (chapter 3). I have developed the comprehension activities into more kinaesthetic work - as explained in notes section of the pwp. Also a gap fill taken from Sigue A2 chap 3. Would recommend doing this lesson alongside work on the imperative. Also attached an article from El Pais about the rise in Unemployment in Jan 16. Another article and reading comprehension (article from EL PAIS, comprehension created by me) also attached about women in the labour market / unemployment. Images taken from google. Hope this is useful to someone out there!

The CONDITIONAL tense and living conditions in GUATEMALA.

The CONDITIONAL tense and living conditions in GUATEMALA.

OBJECTIVE OF THE LESSON: To describe what would the lives of children in Guatemala be like using the conditional tense. The lesson was designed for a Top set year 9 class but can be used for a Year 10/11 class. There is a video link and questions included. The video is a great way to get students hooked at the start of the lesson or it can be watched as a reward and summary at the end of the lesson. After the video, the lesson then focuses on key vocabulary to describe living conditions in Guatemala. Then a revision of the the conditional tense. This includes students conjugating verbs and focusing on irregulars in the conditional tense. This prepares students to complete the reading and translation activity (great prep for the new GCSE!) Students translate both into English and Spanish. There is a more challenging text included for the very able students. The PowerPoint includes answers for the translation and students can be awarded points for each correct sentence based on difficulty. I allowed students to work in groups of 4, but that can be flexible based on the type of class you have. NB: Further detail can be seen in the lesson plan included in the resources. I hope you enjoy using this resource! Gracias :)

The idea of Language Through Music is to learn Spanish by looking at modern popular hits from the Latin American music world. Songs are chosen following a specific criteria. They will generally cover topics of historical/social/political interest tackling issues affecting modern Latin American society, thereby creating opportunity for discussion and practice of oral skills. Furthermore it this gives the teacher the possibility interlink a wider ranger of activities within the same lesson/set of lesson. Some songs may be chosen due to a particularly interesting use of language and/or presence of particular expressions that are worth looking at in detail.
