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!
