KS3/text level Spanish Reading arrow-whole lesson introduction to reading strategies

KS3/text level Spanish Reading arrow-whole lesson introduction to reading strategies

This tried and tested approach to reading provides a visual strategy which can be applied to a wide variety of texts in a second language or in English, improving not only language skills, but also general literacy. Particularly useful when exploiting authentic materials, it can equally be applied to more traditional texts and, once embedded, enables students of all ages to work successfully with more complex source materials than would otherwise have been the case. This resource models the strategy with a simple Spanish text, however it can be applied to texts of a wide range of difficulty. It includes a ten slide teaching presentation to introduce the strategy, comprehensive teaching notes accompanied by thumbnails of all the materials, plus student sheets and the strategy arrow, which can be laminated for repeated use. The resource is also available modelled with a French text and a German text.

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1: Central America

SPANISH INTERACTIVE CULTURAL PROJECTS Descubriendo El Nuevo Mundo Vol.1 Central America - Reading Comprehension - Cut and paste Activity - Group Discussion - Poster Design & Creation - Writing Activity The following project pack contains 3 sections: 1. COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS 2. PICTURE ELEMENTS 3. POSTER TEMPLATES COUNTRY INFORMATION EXTRACTS are short texts containing information on the country in question. Students are to read each extracts and make notes of the important points as a reading comprehension activity. The PICTURE ELEMENTS have been specifically designed to portray information contained in the extracts. Students are then presented with the POSTER TEMPLATES, there is 1 poster template for each of the countries in question. Each template has 4 blank spaces each of which should contain a cutout of a picture element. Next to each space there are blank lines for a short paragraph to be written. An option would be to divide students into small groups and assigning a different central american country to each group. Within each group, students will discuss the main information points relevant to the country assigned, select 4 picture elements relevant to the country and together come up with 4 short paragraphs relating the picture to the country on the basis of what they have learned from the extract. This is a multi-level project activity as the length and complexity of the paragraph can be adjusted to the level of the students in questions. EXTENSION: This project can lead onto a bigger and more independent activity, where students go on to carry out their own research on the assigned country (in other words they create their own extracts) and proceed to nd suitable images or even their own drawings to create large posters. Ultimately they would have to produce short paragraphs relating their images/drawings to the information collected. Total no. of pages: 31
