Section: INTERMEDIATE SPANISH, SPAN011
Class theme/topics discussed:
Stories + Ser-Estar
How did you pick this theme or topic?
They struggle a lot with Ser-Estar so I thought it would be a good idea to have a class on the differences between these two verbs and also the different meanings.
How did you present the material? (handouts, group work, general discussion, student presentations, etc.)
We brainstormed the differences between the verbs and then we played the ppt. After that they had to create a story using as many ser-estar verb forms as possible.
How did students react?
They are not very eager to learn grammar, but they appreciated being reminded of the differences and having some more practice. In the end the stories were fun!
Did they engage with each other and you?
Yes, they did.
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?
Why or why not?
They learned a lot.
