Do students in your classroom understand why they are learning a second language?

  • What is the general feeling about language learning in your school? Town? Region?
plan instruction

What resources will you use?

  • What skills will you try to develop?
  • What vocabulary and structures will students need to communicate?
  • What will proficiency look like?
  • What is the overarching theme or idea of this unit? Do all activities lead to it?
Plan Instruction!
an example

The HOOK sets the mood for the whole unit, so be clever!

    • In the novel, La CalacaAlegre, the theme is identity so the hook gets students thinking about their own identity. Students receive a print out of their last year’s school picture and they write or draw all of the things that make them who they are.
An example:
the assessment a mural

The summative assessment at the end of this novel is for each student to create a mural that represents his/her identity.

    • I must have prepared students with vocabulary and verb structures.
    • I must make sure that they understand symbolism in murals.
    • I must be sure they understand what identity means and what factors affect who a person is.
    • I must know they can think critically and ask questions about others’ identity.
The assessment: A mural
whatever your unit begin it with a hook

Ask students to wear a blindfold and hold their hands over their ears and remain silent for 2 minutes. When the 2 minutes are over, ask the question (How does it feel to be completely unable to express yourself? How would you feel if you could see and hear but could not speak your mind?) to hook students into considering the oppression often suffered by people during a war.

Whatever your unit, begin it with a Hook!
desired outcome

Big idea: Students will use the target language in an increasingly complex manner to discuss the themes common to war as they relate to the US and Spanish speaking countries.

Desired Outcome
knowledge students will know

Terms related to political viewpoints: communism, , dictatorship

  • Terms related to war: human rights, kill, die, shoot, injure, fair, unfair, fear, coup d’etat, torture, kidnap
  • Where is the Southern Cone? Which countries make up the Southern Cone? Which countries were under the rule of a dictator?
  • How to identify bias in sources of information.
KNOWLEDGE (students will know)
skills students will be able to

Compare and contrast the Guerra Sucia with the US Civil war.

  • Accurately use new vocabulary in the target language to discuss and write about complex social topics.
  • Think critically to identify bias in resources used to study historical topics.
Skills (Students will be able to)

Discussion of Cautiva will include searching for bias toward one side or the other and discussion of how long post war the movie took place.

  • Discussion of the movie La HistoriaOficial will include critically thinking about which events in the movie represent political statements. Teacher will model this for 3 episodes, Students will hunt for political themes in the last 4 episodes.
  • Students will view and discuss the film “De Amor y de Sombra” and will compare Irene’s view of Chile before and after she met Francisco Leal.

Students will reflect critically in a journal beginning with the third episode of the movie. They will use target vocabulary to share their feelings about the events seen in the weekly segment.

  • Quiz on historical timeline
  • Poster created to further the cause of the families searching for information about their desaparecidos.
  • Introduction to the song “El Pais de Nomeacuerdo” which the students will hear throughout La HistoriaOficial.
