Speaking cards and general questions Los valores tradicionales y modernos (AQA)

(3)
"A great resource for the price of a sandwich!" This is a booklet with stimulus cards, question starters and general questions on the topic "Los valores tradicionales y modernos" aimed at and tailored for students. It is based on the AQA board and the Oxford University Press AS textbook. The booklet contains a summary of the exam structure (separately for AS and AL), eight sample stimulus cards, questions starters and general questions on the subtopics. I have also included the source of the material in many of the stimulus cards, so that students can do extensive reading on the topic. The resource can be used in class or to set homework. I have created this booklet as there are only a few stimulus cards in the AQA site and as a teacher I need more resources than these to practice in class. Also, the type of questions in the new oral exam is very different to the old: they require a more precise response to the card, they test their knowledge of the culture and society and they are generally more challenging! I hope this resource helps teachers with their workload and it gives students an opportunity to practice and prepare for the exams. I welcome any feedback on this resource, either on this site or privately at: bgp@stbrn.ac.uk. You will find more cards in TES for units 2, 3 and 4. Thanks for your support.

This compilation of cards includes sub-themes such as the exile of children during the Civil War, bringing down Franco's statues, the economic boom during Franco times, Letizia as a plebeian, etc., in one word, as much variety as possible, all within range! The general questions are followed by a selection of photographs to be used as preparation for presentations, or as a starting point for the IRP. I feel at this point of the course, students should be able to work from visual stimuli on their own! I have also published a set of revision notes to accompany the cards (if you deem it necessary). Please leave a comment if you purchase this resource. Your feedback is very helpful to me. Happy teaching and learning! Blanca

This is the fourth installment of revision notes for the new A Level. You can use it for preparation of speaking cards, to revise for end of unit tests or for a final revision. I have kept the format as clear as possible so that students can highlight the notes if they wish to. If you liked this resource, you will find revision notes for the other units under my name too. Please leave a comment after you purchase the resource. All feedback welcome. Happy teaching and learning, Blanca
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.

Following the success with the first instalment, this is the second instalment of a series of revision notes for the preparation of the new A Levels (AQA). The notes are a compilation of ideas from subtopics, with plenty of ideas sourced from the students themselves. They can be used for the preparation of the listening and reading, or for the stimulus cards. The idea is that students revise the vocabulary and key ideas grouped together by context. I hope it is useful for you and your students. The third unit revision notes have also been published in TES. Kindly respect copyright and do not distribute freely. Your feedback is welcome. Happy teaching and learning!

UPDATED. Based on rockmonkey’s excellent Y12 Spanish Booklet, I have made my own version. This is for the old AQA but it has things that you might be wanted to use in the new. Please forget my plagiarism (particularly rockmonkey) but you inspired me! I suppose that is part of the game! I hope you find it useful.

Scheme of Work (AQA) - A Level Spanish. Teacher and Student versions

(1)
If you are new to teaching and /or you want to update your scheme of work to the latest teaching research theories and the new OFSTED framework, this is what you need! Editable documents included This is a 2 year scheme of work for the A Level Spanish AQA course following the upcoming new OFSTED Inspection framework and based on the latest Theory of Knowledge (latest scientific research on learning). It sounds scary but it isn’t! The curriculum overview summarizes the concepts that students have to grasp, the grammar that accompanies it, as well as the generic skills and activities that they acquire/improve/do in class. Each of the topics also has a “refining”(knowledge) section, which is basically a recall of things learnt previously and that you should include in your teaching. Finally, there is a section explaining why the topic is being taught/learnt. The new OFSTED framework stipulates that students are assessed on knowledge and also skills, hence a box explaining the common skills you can use to do so. I have also created a friendly version for the students, so that they can follow the programme of studies with you. There is a complete breakdown of all the grades per skill (based on June 2019 exam boundaries), advice on independent learning, boxes to write results and targets for mock assessments, etc. The final page details the qualities of an excellent linguist (they need to know what to aim for, I suppose:!)… Kindly respect copyright. This has been hours of extra work, and** I mean to make it accessible for all by pricing it low.** I’m not a banker but I would like some reward for my work and it helps to pay the bills! Any comments or questions welcome (I’m in the Facebook A Level Group). As always, enjoy! Blanca

This is the first in a series of revision notes. They are a summary of key information/ideas and not a collection of data. They revise ideas for the speaking cards and also key vocabulary in context. They can be used in preparation for end of unit tests, mock exams and for the real exams. The updated version contains a section on women and work and on gender violence. Kindly respect copyright and do not distribute freely. Your feedback is welcome.

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

Revision notes on this "bodrio" of a theme! I have tried to simplify as much as possible a subject that I believe is not too appealing for the majority of students. You can use the revision notes in a variety of ways: students make flash cards with them, to introduce a subtopic, to revise vocab in context, for ideas for the IRP, etc. A set of stimulus cards and general questions complements these notes, but both usable as individual resources. Feedback on this resource always welcome. And thanks for those who are showing continuous support for my work. Enjoy, Blanca

Speaking cards, questions and game La convivencia (new AL2 AQA)

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

These notes are a comprehensive summary of the topic, and they can be used to support the speaking cards (my collection or others), to revise the unit, for self and independent study. They include cutting edge aspects of the topic, such as "La Bestia" and Trump's proposals for tougher laws to curb illegal inmigration. If you find these notes useful, please visit my shop for other batches on different units. Your feedback is really appreciated either here or at bgp@stbrn.ac.uk. Happy teaching and learning, Blanca.

Here is the final installment (hoorrayyyy!!!) of stimulus cards , general questions and one little exercise practicing making questions for the new A level. You will see the cards are varied in content, always trying to think a bit out of the box! The other installments are also available in TES. The first set on "Los valores tradicionales y modernos" contains sample questions (I have ploughed through every possible card on this planet so I hope I got them all!). You would have noticed these questions follow a pattern, so I have tried to reproduce it on my cards. There are revision notes/ general notes accompanying this card (useful for the students to prepare the cards independently). These are also available in TES. I hope you find them useful and your £2 save you a lot of work. Any comments, as usual, are welcome. happy teaching and learning! Blanca

This is a second instalment of stimulus cards and general questions for the preparation of the oral AQA exam (the first instalment, for Los valores tradicionales y modernos, was also published via TES ). This 15 page booklet includes a very brief description of the exam and the mark scheme for the first part of the exam. It has 8 stimulus cards with question types similar to those in the exam, general questions on the three subtopics and two pages of stretch and challenge statements that can be used for oral or written responses. I have not included a list of questions starters, which I included in the booklet on Los valores tradicionales y modernos, as I would not want you to buy the same content again. I did however think it necessary to include a brief description of the exam structure and mark scheme so that your students have a quick reference guide. I hope you like the work and it makes your teaching easier. I welcome any feedback at this site or privately at: bgp@stbrn.ac.uk. Many thanks for your support.
