Language and Section: Spanish 11-01
Class theme/topics discussed: Holidays and touristic spots in Spain
Goal of the class: talk a little bit about holidays and show them some cities in Spain, which are tourists’ attractions
Structure of the class (unless you attach your lesson plan below)
We did a discussion between life in the cities and in the countryside. There were two teams and one team had to come up with advantages of living in a city and disadvantages of living in the countryside and the other team the other way around. After that we had a discussion among all the students with their arguments.
I asked them to form two groups and talk about their favorite holidays. They had to share their experiences with the class. After that I asked them if they knew any cities and traditions/fests in Spain. I asked them to get in pairs and I gave them a document with different pictures on them. Each document had pictures of a city in Spain and they had to talk and try to figure out what the city was, what kind of tourism would have, what people could do, etc.
I projected a map of Spain on the screen and they had to point the place they thought the city was. I helped them and told them a little bit about the cities. They passed the documents around so that everybody could see the pictures.
What technology, media or props did you use? (satellite tv, internet resources, playmobiles, etc.)
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
They liked to talk about their own experiences. Also, they were pretty interested in know which one the cities were and where they are located. They asked some questions about the map and asked to pass around the pictures so that everybody could see.
How could this class be improved/ modified?
I should have left more time for the pictures and the map. I realised that if we had had more time we could have talked a lot more about the cities and the touristic spots. I could have shown them some more pictures on the screen.
