A-Level Spanish: Racism - SOS Racismo / Interview with SOS Racismo president

A-Level Spanish: Racism - SOS Racismo / Interview with SOS Racismo president

For the KS5 'Racismo' sub-topic. The double-sided worksheet contains two tasks: 1) An introductory gap-fill activity (text summarising what SOS Racismo is and does) 2) An audio-visual activity where students watch a video ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1Xm0sqYr0 ) then answer the 11 accompanying questions. To complete task 2, pupils must watch a Youtube video of an interview with the president of SOS Racismo, who gives examples of racism, including his own experience, and some measures for combatting it. The video gives various other facts about racism in Spain. I would recommend that you reduce the speed of the video to 75% by selecting the Settings icon at the bottom of the video (not available on some tablet apps but visible on PCs), then clicking Speed > 0.75 PLEASE CHECK that the video is still available before downloading the worksheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bi1Xm0sqYr0 This sheet will probably take up most of the lesson by the time you have watched the video twice (pausing it to give students a chance to write), gone through the answers and discussed the issues raised. Alternatively, it could be set as a homework. (Images are public domain from openclipart.org unless otherwise credited)

La convivencia: notas de revisión (new AL2 AQA)

La convivencia: notas de revisión (new AL2 AQA)

Revision notes on multilingualism and multiculturalism in Spain (linked to peaceful coexistence); ways to promote "la convivencia escolar", including the context of Hispanic students in the USA,etc. There is also a section on threats to peaceful coexistence, such as ciberislamophobia, separatism, ETA and corruption. I have included some notes on the gypsies in Spain, slightly altered from what I included in the notes for "El racismo". This is so that students can make the conexion between both themes. Happy teaching and learning! Blanca

A set of 10 cards touching upon a variety of sub-topics including Toledo as a a city of three cultures, Lavapiés (a suburb in Madrid) as an example of a successful diverse quarter , the santería, threats to social coexistence, etc. Many cards have links to newspaper articles that students can read to prepare the card or for extension reading. This is followed by general questions that allow students to reflect on knowledge of the world around them as well as that of the Hispanic world. The game consists of a serious of statements that students have to place the context for and analyse. I have also published revision notes for this topic. Happy teaching and learning, Blanca

AQA A-Level Spanish (Listening): Immigration from Mexico to US

AQA A-Level Spanish (Listening): Immigration from Mexico to US

This is an audiovisual activity for the Immigration sub-topic (AQA A-Level Spanish). It contains a series of questions or gap-fill sentences related to a 2017 Youtube video about immigration from Mexico to the U.S. (I slowed the video down to 0.75 speed for the first listen, then played it at normal speed. This seemed to work well.) Please check the accompanying video (not produced by me) is still available before downloading the worksheet: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TiNHOEm_kHg

El Racismo (new A Level): Notas de revisión

El Racismo (new A Level): Notas de revisión

As promised, here are the revision notes for this topic. Useful to prepare speaking cards, revise concepts, ideas, cultural information, etc. I have included notes on racism against indigenous people, the homeless and gypsies too, apart from the obvious. Also, examples of racist language, campaigns, etc. It seems to me that AQA could have labelled this topic better, for example "hate crime" as it is wider than just hate against "race". Happy teaching and learning, Blanca.

Speaking cards, questions and game El racismo (New AL)

Speaking cards, questions and game El racismo (New AL)

A comprehensive set of speaking cards focusing on cutting-edge areas of this topic. It includes cards on racist expressions in Spanish, islamofobia, aporofobia, racism against indigenous people in Peru, etc. They can be used in class, prepared for homework or as a mock exam. The revision notes for this topic can help students to prepare these cards. The general questions are for pair work, to prepare a presentation or for mock exams. I have included questions on Trump and his immigration policies which are seen as racist by many. At the end, there is a game to challenge students and help them with spontaneous talk. Thanks to all for your continuous support. Happy learning. Blanca
