Spanish Cultural Unit Plan - Language through Music: Latinoamerica by Calle13

Spanish Cultural Unit Plan - Language through Music: Latinoamerica by Calle13

The idea of Language Through Music is to learn Spanish by looking at modern popular hits from the Latin American music world. Songs are chosen following a specific criteria. They will generally cover topics of historical/social/political interest tackling issues affecting modern Latin American society, thereby creating opportunity for discussion and practice of oral skills. Furthermore it this gives the teacher the possibility interlink a wider range of activities within the same lesson/set of lesson. Some songs may be chosen due to a particularly interesting use of language and/or presence of particular expressions that are worth looking at in detail. Due to copyright reasons I cannot include the original audio file with the material, however all of the songs will be widely available on the net/Youtube/iTunes and I will provide a working link. The use of realia such modern songs in the learning process will give the student more of a feel of real-world application of his language skills as well as an enriching cultural experience in itself. In depth analysis of the song LATINOAMERICA” by Calle 13 feat. Toto La Momposina, Maria Rita & Susana Baca This song indirectly touches the topic of American Imperialism and its impact on Latin America, through the masterful use of metaphors and symbologies related to Latin American identity. Includes: - Full Lyrics text of the song - Comprehension & Analysis questions - Further exercise focusing on the interpretation of the metaphors used - Reading comprehension text on American Imperialism and Latin America - A Mind map outlining important points for a class discussion on the topic. This is advanced level material Youtube link to the song: https://youtu.be/DkFJE8ZdeG8 ANSWER SHEET is not included because many questions are discussion based however if you require answer guidelines I will be happy to provide you with a free copy.

Colours poem - Spanish

Colours poem - Spanish

I used these resources with Y7 and Y8 on National Poetry Day and they went down very well. The poem is a lovely one about colours, and is very accessible even to Y7s who've only been doing Spanish for a short time. They first read the original poem, practising comprehension and pronunciation, then wrote and illustrated their own version (examples included - excuse the mistakes, they were only in their first month of learning Spanish!). The original version of the poem includes adjectival agreement, which was good practice for Y8s but caused some confusion and led to some poor grammar in my Y7s' own version as they'd only been doing Spanish for a few weeks and hadn't yet covered adjectival agreement. I've therefore created an adapted version for beginners which removes the need to deal with m/f/pl if pupils haven't done this yet. Apologies for my butchering of the original poem, but it makes it much easier for beginners to adapt!
