El patrimonio cultural: notas de revisión

El patrimonio cultural: notas de revisión

This is the last set of revision notes for the new A Level. It is meant to be a resumé as you can imagine, since the "patrimonio" is such a vast topic.

I will also be publishing revision notes for the second year of the A Level, so please visit my shop again. And if you have missed it, I have an invaluable collection of speaking cards mirrowing the exam. These are also available in TES as cheap as £2 per unit or purchased for the year at £10.If you enjoy my resources, please encourage your colleagues to support me. Many thanks for all your comments.

Spanish AS: Carrousel activities for Spanish festivals, gender's equality and heritage.

Spanish AS: Carrousel activities for Spanish festivals, gender's equality and heritage.

This resource are 3 carrousel activities that you can use in class or for homework. We used them to research some aspects of some of the topics in Year 1. For example, for the gender's equality one, I divided the class into 5 groups and every group had to use the internet to research their topic. I gave them 2 lessons and then in the third one they had to share with the class what they had learnt and teach the others. For the festivals one I also got them to work in groups and then share the ideas. Finally, for the heritage one (which includes famous painters, architects and musicians) they had to reaseach for every lesson 2 people and make some notes. I used this resource as independent learning and they had to do it as part of the homework I gave them. By the end of the unit, they had researched them all and they were able to broaden their knowledge of the culture. I put together teacher versions for 2 of these 3 aspects (festivals and gender's equality) since they were class activities and I wanted to give them extra information.
