Language Resident Name: Tamara Olivos
Day and Date: September 27, 2016
Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced Spanish
Class theme/topics discussed: Humor Monologues
Goal of the class:
How did you structure the class?
We will discuss a monologue about “suitcases”. I introduce the topic by asking what they pack when they travel and how much they pack
We start reading the first paragraph of the handout and then we discuss what kind of text they think it is.
We continue to do this with the following paragraphs, stopping after each one for questions on vocabulary and comprehension (following the handout)
We watch the video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yy3nL51Nzr8 and discuss the differences between reading the monologue and watching it live.
In pairs they create a mini monologue.
What worked well in this class? What did not work?
They were really motivated and participated throughout the class.
The video was a bit too long.
If you have a more detailed lesson plan, please attach it below (OK to use target language for that). Please attach any handouts as well.
