Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
Famous Spanish people.
How did you pick this theme or topic?
In continuing with the topic of Spanish culture, I decided to introduce them to some very famous Spanish people and let them tell me who they were.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
I printed images of famous Spanish actors, singers, directors, architects, writers etc., and showed them in class. They had to say how many of them knew and try to figure out who were the ones they didn’t know.
How did students react?
They liked the activity and talked quite a lot.
Did they engage with each other and you?
They tried to guess who all these people were and were really good at guessing. Some were not very interested and had to be addressed to take part, though.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Images from Internet.
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
I would, it works for both intermediate and advanced, depending on the people you choose.
Why or why not?
They liked the activity but maybe another activity should be made in addition to this. They enjojey but some didn’t know any of them and got tired of guessing.
