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.

A2 Speaking cards

A2 Speaking cards

A simple set of 54 speaking cards on the topics of:ENVIRONMENT >Pollution >Energy >Protecting the planetTHE MULTICULTURAL SOCIETY >Immigration >Integration >RacismCONTEMPORARY SOCIAL ISSUES >Wealth and poverty >Law and order >IT Just print and play!To be honest I love these cards simply because they are so easy to store (can easily fit into the palm of your hand) and the students can take them with them as either homework or practice. Somehow students are keener to work on a small card rather than the normal A4 format for some reason. I guess it looks like less hard work when it's really the same :) .

Los derechos del colectivo LGBT

Los derechos del colectivo LGBT

This is a lesson I put together based on Unit 3.3 of the new AQA A Level Spanish textbook; pages 54-57.The PowerPoint follows the content and grammar presented in the book and is supplemented by articles that I have found online related to the topic of LGBT in Spain and Latin America. The lesson covers reading, listening, translation, writing (summarising texts) and speaking skills. My students have recently had a mock exam which highlighted areas that they needed to work on and I have tried to cover these during this lesson.Instructions in the PowerPoint are a mix of Spanish and English - the instructions in the textbook are in Spanish therefore I have tried to support the students with English instructions on the slide whilst I use the target language to explain things.This lesson is probably only of use if you have the new AQA A Level Spanish textbook for the new specification by Hodder Education.
