Language and Level (intermediate or advanced class): Advanced Spanish

Class theme/topics discussed: current events


Goal of the class: To discuss pieces of news about Latin America and the world.

How did you structure the class?


Ice-breaker: Scategories: Individually we play this game. I select all the categories and they must fill them using a specific letter.


Acitivity 1: in small groups, I gave them headlines of real and fake news and they had to determine which ones were which and imagine what it was about. They shared their ideas. After this, they chose one or two headlines and I gave them the complete piece of news. They read it in groups and then shared a brief summary of it with the class


Activity 2: I show them a video from the website (a satirical news website), we discuss it and then go through the website.


What technology, media or props did you use? (internet resources, playmobiles, handouts, etc.)

Printed material, pieces of news


What worked well in this class? What did not work?

 I use the Chilean website and to get the fake news. They loved these!

Noticias verdaderas o falsas 20 min

A cada grupo de 5 personas les entregaré 5 títulos de noticias. Tienen que decidir cuáles son verdaderas y cuáles son falsas. De las verdaderas, tienen que pensar en el contenido de la noticia. Luego nos cuentan sus conclusiones y de qué creen que se trata la noticia.


10 min Luego, les entrego la noticia completa verdadera y deben leerla y comentarla con el resto de la clase. Deben darnos un resumen. Pueden elegir una noticia  falsa también y explicarla.
