This lesson is based around the issues relating to colonialism and measures to address the past e.g. use of public spaces commemorating controversial figures. The first slides of the PDF are for discussion - what can they see? When? Who? Why? etc. The gap fill reading is from a text describing the arrival of Columbus in America. The following slides focus on the use of language and image illustrating how people’s interpretation is affected by the historical depiction of the events. We next move to the debate over statues and the use of public spaces to commemorate controversial figures. An initial discussion re: views Work on impersonal verbs and expressions with the aim of ensuring that opinions use a range of language including this type of structure.
The collection of resources is intended to focus on the presentation of the present tense to Year 7 students. They supplement chapter 2 of the VIVA 1 course book. We start with -AR verbs and then introduce the -ER & -IR verbs. We gradually move to presenting the fact that some verbs are irregular and do not follow the normal pattern. As in line with VIVA, these verbs are JUGAR + HACER.
Although translation can easily be embedded into teaching, I find that it is important to take a period of time to focus on the skills involved. Attached is a booklet I have put together which is made up of all of the AQA translations into Spanish from recent past papers. I find that pulling everything together from a certain task type helps to focus the students on the skills needed and also helps me as a teacher to spot trends. March 2021 - The booklet has been updated to include the 2020 paper
