Spanish A Level inmigración impacto positivo _ influencia árabe _ positive impact of Arab influence

Spanish A Level inmigración impacto positivo _ influencia árabe _ positive impact of Arab influence

Two comprehensive resources to be included in any lesson on positive impact of immigration in Spain or the impact of Arab immigration through the ages. The reading comprehension involves verb conjugation activities, gap-fill comprehension and translation both ways. There is a paragraph to be translated into English and sentences to translate into Spanish based on the text. There is a separate key vocabulary list with a translation into Spanish recycling lots of this vocabulary.

A varied collection of cards on evictions and La Ley Mordaza, indigenous protests in Guatemala, Catalonia, rubbish collection protests, etc. You are spoilt for variety here! These cards are followed by general questions. The cards and questions can be used in class, set for homework, used in mocks or anything that stretches your imagination! I have also published revision notes on this topic. These can help with the preparation of some cards or to consolidate/extend knowledge of the topic. Feedback is always welcome. Enjoy, Blanca

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
