Section: ADVANCED SPANISH, SPAN013
Class theme/topics discussed:
How did you pick this theme or topic?
We are going to have poetry during the special dinner, so they can work on it.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
First we started with an exercise to put verbs in the subjunctive form (it was a poem) and then we read poetry.
I split them in groups and each group had to discuss what their poem was about. Then I put 1 menber of each group together and have them explaining to the other what their poem was about. Finally we read them out loud trying to pronounce it perfectly.
How did students react?
Some loved it, others not so much… but in general they liked it.
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they engaged pretty well.
What materials or media did you use? (articles, satellite tv, digital projector, etc.)
Please attach a copy.
Would you recommend this activity for a future class?
Yes. It’s nice to challenge them every now and then.
Why or why not?
They like poetry (not all of them) and it’s something different.
