Grade Level: 9-12
This unit is intended to be used as a supplement to the Spanish 1 class curriculum for high school students, grades 9-12. At the end of this unit students will be responsible for creating a video about McDonalds, a bodega, or ordering food at a restaurant in Spanish. The purpose of this exercise is to allow students to have a more hands-on approach, in the spirit of technology and social media, by engaging them in speaking more Spanish, and in doing so maybe even teach someone else a few words in Spanish. This unit will provide high school students with multiple opportunities to practice Spanish, from job related experiences, ordering food in a restaurant, and even exchanging pleasantries at the local bodega or “Papi Store,” as this corner store is commonly called here in Philadelphia, Pa.
Throughout this unit students will continue to acquire and develop basic reading, writing, listening, and communication skills. It is my hope that it will provide a more approachable way of introducing Spanish to beginning students. Students will learn Spanish through mini lessons and short videos and in the end, produce their own Spanish language content. This unit should not exceed one week.
