Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
How did you pick this theme or topic?
I thought it might be interesting to talk about the different stereotypes we can find in Spain and then move to the stereotypes in the USA.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I handed out pieces of paper with different stereotypes they had to agree with and explain why. Then another person in the class had the answer and argued against that stereotype. In the end, they all had to defend the American stereotypes.
How did students react?
They liked it and they liked knowing the different stereotypes in Spain and knowing what Spaniards think of Americans.
Did they engage with each other and you?
They engaged, but maybe we needed a funnier activity to have them talking for a longer time.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
