Global citizenship: Derechos y responsabilidades

Global citizenship: Derechos y responsabilidades

Our Y9 SOW has a module on Global issues/citizenship. I remember I had some wants and needs cards which I used in PSHE once. The resources are cards for students to sort (wants and needs) and a powerpoint to accompany. I have used this with my lower set (none of whom are continuing with Spanish). Any feedback or comments on how I've translated some of the concepts would be helpful.

Irlanda aprueba el matrimonio homosexual

Irlanda aprueba el matrimonio homosexual

A video clip from Antena 3 noticias. In this exercise I would delete the questions from the work sheet and allow students to write the questions. Once they are happy that the questions and answers match, they can translate the questions into Spanish. Another way to differentiate this task would be to give the students multiple choice answers.
