School/Organization:

Randolph Career Academy

Year: 2019

Seminar: Learning about America and the World from McDonald’s

Grade Level: 9-12

Keywords: ¡Buenos días!, bodega, Foreign Language, greetings, McDonalds, Papi Store, señor, señora, señorita, Spanish, video

School Subject(s): Languages, Spanish

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.

RATIONALE

“Languages are the central theme of communication in every aspect of human endeavor-be it in the social, economic and political sphere. Gone are the days of relying on one’s native language in communicating with people, especially in business. Modern technology has made the world a global village, and now, more than ever, the language barrier has to be broken.”  ~Vikash Gupta, July 2018 

As a Spanish teacher and a native educated Spanish speaker, I love to encourage my students to speak Spanish.  Spanish can be a fun language to learn. Learning Spanish is very useful in today’s society. It is also one of the easiest languages to learn for English speakers ‘due to its wide reach and practicality’. Besides, it’s the second most spoken language in America! [Burton. 2015] It also happens to be the fastest growing language here in the United States. According to the New York Post, there are 41 million Spanish speakers living in the United States today. [Perez.2015] The article further adds that the United States has more Spanish speakers than Spain.

Everywhere I go, there’s always someone in need of a translation.

Recently, at the airport, I found myself staying behind to help this stranger (instead of rushing to my gate to catch my flight) at the TSA security checkpoint. The gentleman had no clue what the TSA security agents were asking him. They needed to open and check something that was inside his bag. Something must have shown up on the security cameras. The TSA security agents said that they appreciated my help, especially once they realized that I was not traveling with the gentleman, because they had to instruct him to do things that he did not understand. The man, originally from Argentina (I was conversing with him while in the line), spoke Spanish and had no clue what they were asking him.

Regardless of the fact that there is a two credit requirement of a foreign language, which is equivalent to two years, in order to graduate in the State of Pennsylvania from high school, it isn’t enough time to teach or learn how to speak a language properly. It would suggest, then, that one needs to be very intentional and purposeful in what one teaches their students.  It would certainly make sense that if they were learning purposefully and intentionally in a realistic and meaningful way, they would be more engaged and interested in being able to communicate and understand other Spanish speakers in their neighborhoods, and or traveling the world. Spanish is everywhere today. It’s in movies, commercials, music, at the airport, in neighborhoods, on the streets, and on the corners, everywhere.

In an ideal world, my students would be able to communicate with other Spanish speakers in Philadelphia, a place where they are surrounded by Spanish speaking people every time they enter a bodega to buy their snacks. I constantly ask my students, “Wouldn’t it be amazing to understand what the people who run the Papi stores are saying, in Spanish, to other Spanish speakers while you’re standing there, and, you, being able to either contribute to or understand that conversation?” Many people think that foreigners are talking about them when they speak to one another in their native tongue. Most times, they are not.

While reading about the world language requirements nationwide, I discovered that language is not a requirement for graduation in all 50 states here in the United States. As a matter of discovery, this policy is left up to the state, and sometimes the district. [Education Commission of the States, 2019.]

While this unit is designed to teach my students, in my Spanish 1 class, in the School District of Philadelphia, it can be taught anywhere in the United States. McDonald’s restaurants are ubiquitous.

It is my hope that by the end of this seminar, Learning about America and About the World from McDonald’s: An Interdisciplinary Approach, I will have identified multiple ways to engage my students in learning Spanish through McDonald’s, with more acceptable, purposeful, and cognitive connections between the English and Spanish languages.

 

BACKGROUND

  1. Philip Randolph Career and Technical High School is a public school in the School District of Philadelphia, where students who attend come from all over the city. It is currently 90-95% African American, the other 5% is Latino, white and other. Most of the students who attend Randolph are interested in career and technical fields. Programs of study offered at Randolph are in Health Related Technology, Automotive, Auto Body, Construction, Dental Assistants, Fire Academy, EMTs, Culinary, Advanced Electronics and Welding. In addition to completing their requirements in their career and technical fields, they must also fulfill the requirements for graduation by The Pennsylvania Department of Education. The requirement for a foreign language is two credits. Spanish is the only foreign language offered at Randolph.

Classroom Activities

LESSON 1

Objective: Students will use the common vocabulary, forms, and structures they have learned in class and through previous lessons in basic speaking and writing in order to engage in conversation as demonstrated in buying snacks at the Papi store, corner store.

Students will be able to greet and say goodbye in Spanish in order to provide good customer service.

Standard: PA. S.S. 12.1.B.1.a   Greetings, farewells and courtesy expressions

Materials: handout (Appendix), Smart board, Time of Day poster (see below) to use as reference by students.

These lessons are presented for oral work only in the beginning.

 

Write on the board:

“Buenos días”, “Buenas tardes”, “Buenas noches”.

Tell students: “These are common greetings for any and every scenario. Friends, family, customers, strangers passing by, in a restaurant.”

 

VOCABULARIO 1   [Vocabulary] Review these expressions with students.   

                                           

Buenos días.                                                            ¡Adiós!

Buenas tardes.                                                         ¡Chao!

Buenas noches.                                                        ¡Hasta pronto!          

Muy bien.                                                                 ¡Hasta mañana!       

señor                                                                         Por favor.      

señora                                                                       Gracias.        

señorita                                                                    De (Por) nada.          

                                                                                    No hay de qué.

                                           

                                             

 

Ask your students if they remember what these expressions mean from a previous lesson. Tell them that even though we have learned how to greet people before, this will be a little different because of the intention in which we will use them, business.

 

 

Saludos [Greetings]

 

In these short mini lessons, students learn expressions that do not require any grammatical knowledge. They will already have exposure to greeting from prior lessons in Spanish 1 class. This lesson will provide them with a context in which to use their greeting at work. They will learn to communicate with a customer by greeting one another, saying good-bye, and using the time of day (morning, afternoon, or evening/night) when appropriate.

Typically, we would greet someone with ¡Hola! as we have done previously in another lesson prior. In this lesson, because we are in a work environment, we will greet more formally. This greeting would require us to be more objective and less personal.

 

Teacher: In each section explain the meaning of the sentences and questions. Then, have the students repeat after you. Students will benefit from hearing you speak and, then, hearing themselves. Have students repeat, multiple times. Have students work in pairs for practice first, then, have them move about the classroom to speak with someone else.

Say:

¡Buenos días!  (Good morning!)   Repeat 3x.  Ask students, “When do you use this phrase?”  “Would you use this phrase at night?”  Then repeat ¡Buenos días! This time, use a name.

¡Buenos días, Miguel!  (response) ¡Buenos días!

 

When speaking to a customer, you would generally not know their name. So, instead of their name you would use: señor, señora, or señorita.

Repeat this procedure using the rest of the greetings.

                                                                                                                                   

¡Buenas tardes! Good afternoon!         ¡Buenas noches! Good evening! Good night!

¡Buen día! Good day!                           ¡Buenas!* Greetings!/Hello!

 

Explain to students that this way of greeting is different from how you would greet your friends or someone familiar.

 

Students will repeat after you. Then, change your greeting by addressing a man, or a woman. For example, ¡Buenos días, señor! , ¡Buenos días, señorita! , ¡Buenas tardes, señor! , ¡Buenas tardes, señorita! And so on. Explain that you haven’t used “señora” yet because the only “señora” in the room is your teacher. When you address your teacher, you will address her as “señora”. Señora is for a married woman. The ladies in the classroom are not yet married, and therefore, are señoritas.

 

Ask students to take notes.

Write on the board.

Saying goodbye

There are many more ways to say goodbye, but for purposes of formality, as in business, we shall limit these expressions to the following:

 

¡Adios!                        ¡Hasta pronto!             ¡Hasta mañana!                 ¡Buen día!                        Good-bye!                  See you soon!                Until tomorrow!                 Good day!

 

 

POST somewhere in classroom in order to be able to reference at any given time.

 

Times of the day

 

Por la mañana                       Por la tarde               Por la noche          Es de día                           Es de noche

In the morning In the afternoon          At night                 Daytime              Nighttime

 

 “Buenos días”                       “Buenas tardes”                    “Buenas noches”

 

 

In English, we use Mr. or Mrs. attached to a name. For example, we would say, “Hello, Mrs. Sampson.” In Spanish, that would not be necessary. One could simply say, “señor”, “señora”, or “señorita.” In English, we would have to change the way we address someone by using, “Sir” or “Madame”.

 

***

 

The expressions in this Vocabulary list 1 should be relatively easy for students. These expressions are taught in the very beginning of Spanish 1.

Students will repeat after you and can use this vocabulary list to practice proper pronunciation.

 

 

Activity 1:  Greetings and Farewells at a place of business

 

Here are ways in which people greet each other in Spanish at a place of business. Notice it is a little more formal than the usual “¡Hola! [Handout in Appendix]

Teacher models greeting with students.

 

Saludos/Greeting people

 

¡Buenos días! ¡Buenos días, señor!             Good morning, sir!

¡Buenos días! ¡Buenos días, señora!           Good morning! Good morning, madame!

¡Buenos días! ¡Buenos días, señorita!         Good morning! Good morning, miss!

        ¡Buenas!   ¡Buenas!                              Greetings!

 

Try this exercise using Buenas tardes, Buenas noches, and Buen día using the titles: señor, señora, and señorita.

Have students practice with each other. Remind them that the purpose of this practice will be used later on in their videos. They are learning how to speak in their videos.

 

We will now practice ways to say goodbye. Explain to students that

Despedidas/Saying goodbye

 

¡Adios, señor! Goodbye, sir!                         ¡Hasta pronto, señor!  See you soon, sir!

¡Adios, señora! Goodbye, madame!             ¡Hasta pronto, señora! See you soon, madame!

¡Adios, señorita!  Goodbye. miss                 ¡Hasta pronto, señorita! See you soon, miss!

 

¡Buen día, señor!   Good day, sir     

¡Buen día, señora!   Good day, madame!

¡Buen día, señorita!  Good day, miss!

Students will repeat each expression using the model above when addressing señor, señora, and señorita. Students will practice in groups to make it interesting.

Activity 2:  Greetings and Farewells with customers at McDonalds

 

In this activity students will practice how to greet and say goodbye to customers as McDonald’s employees.

 

Students will work in pairs for this activity. They will greet their classmate as if they were greeting a customer at a McDonald’s Restaurant. Teacher will allow student independent practice and simply act as an overseer.

Students are given a handout the same as this model. [found in Appendix]

 

Student 1 [McDonald’s employee]; Student 2 [McDonald’s customer]

 

                                   

Student 1 will say:                    _¡Buenos días, señor!         _¡Buenos días, señora/señorita!       

Student 2 will respond:             _¡Buenos días!

 

                                              or

Student 1 will say:                              _¡Buenas!

Student 2 will respond:                       _¡Buenas!

 

Student 1 will say:                              _¡Buen día, señor!     _¡Buen día, señora/señorita!

Student 2 will respond:                       _¡Buen día!   

 

                                             or          

Student 1 will say:                              _¡Adios, señor!          _¡Adios, señora/señorita!

Student 2 will respond:                       _¡Adios!

 

 or

Student 1 will say:                      _Hasta pronto, señor!         _¡Hasta pronto, señora/señorita!

Student 2 will respond:               _¡Hasta pronto!

                  

                     *Reminder: señor= sir; señora=Misses/ma’am (married); señorita=Miss(single)

LESSON 2

 

Objective: Students will be able to order food at a McDonald’s in order to eat.

Standard: PA 12.1.E.1 Find words in advertisements influenced by the target language.

 

VOCABULARIO: Ordering at McDonalds

Present the vocabulary. Go over their meanings and how they are used in context. Have students repeat each word after you, several times. Try to point out that some of the words are cognates, and that this will help them to recognize some of the words that are like English.

 

servir(le)        to serve(you)              comer             to eat

gustar             to like                         opciones         options

desayuno        breakfast                     ordenar            to order

almuerzo        lunch                           escoger            to choose

cena               dinner                          ¿listo?             ready?

 

*Notice that some of the words are cognates. Cognates are words that                                                        are similar looking and in meaning to one language from another.

 

Now, let’s apply some of our vocabulary in context to what would most likely occur at a McDonald’s:

Teacher models ordering by role playing with a student, first.

Setting: At a McDonald’s counter.

 

Teacher: Crew Team Member*: __¡Buenos días!

Student: Customer: __¡Buenos días!

TeacherCrew Team Member: _¿En qué puedo servirle?

                        Student: Customer:_ Me gustaría ordenar un desayuno.

Teacher: Crew Team Member: _ Muy bien. Tenemos muchas opciones para el                                                                                         desayuno. Escoja, por favor, del menú.   

 

Customer takes a look at the menu.

 

 

 

*Crew Team Member: name given to a worker at a McDonald’s; in this case, front                                                                           end (at the counter) taking orders.

Teacher: Crew Team Member: _¿Listo para ordenar?

Student: Customer:_Sí. Me gustarían unos panqueques con salchicha y un jugo de naranja.

Teacher: Crew Team Member: _Muy bien. ¿Desea algo más?

Student:Customer: No, gracias. Es todo.

Teacher: Crew Team Member:­_Muy bien. Pronto saldrá su orden.

 

 

Because this is a Spanish 1 class, keep the dialogue simple.

 

In between lessons, students begin developing their scripts for their videos. They are also

beginning to record their videos on their Smartphones or laptops with cameras. They will edit as

they develop their own skits or videos.

Activity 3  Role Play ordering McDonald’s breakfast

 

Here is an activity that can be used in class to teach your students how to order at a McDonald’s in Spanish.

 

Students will role play this scenario by choosing a partner to practice. They will pretend they are at a McDonald’s Restaurant ordering breakfast.

 

__Me gustaría ordenar unos panqueques con salchicha.    [I’d like to order some hotcakes and

sausage]

__¡Muy bien!                                                                         [Very well.]

__¿Cuánto cuesta?                                                                [How much are they?]

__Cuesta $3.50 (tres dólares con cincuenta centavos).     [They are $3.50 (three dollars and

fifty cents.]

__Aquí tiene $5.00 (cinco dólares).                                     [Here’s five dollars.]

__¡Muchas gracias! Tenga su cambio.                               [Thank you very much. Here is your

change.]

__¡Gracias!                                                                            [Thank you!]

__¡Adios!                                                                               [Goodbye]

__¡Gracias por comer en McDonald’s!                              [Thank you for eating at

McDonald’s!]

 

Repeat activity. Practice pronunciation. Teacher will model first.

LESSON 3

Objective: SWBAT use basic speaking IOT engage in conversation in buying at the Papi store.

Standard: ACTFL 5.1  Students use language beyond school setting.

 

 

VOCABULARIO: At the Papi Store

 

¿Cuánto cuesta?                    ¿Cuánto vale?                       ¿Cuánto es?

How much does it cost?          How much is it worth?           How much?

 

Items of food that you may want to buy at the bodega:

Have students translate; or you may do as a group activity.

Activity 4

Buying at the Papi Store.

Here is a typical exchange at a Papi Store during an afternoon visit:

 

__¡Buenas tardes, Don José!

“Good afternoon, Don José!”

__¡Buenas tardes, Justin!

“Good afternoon, Justin!”

__¿Qué desea hoy?

“What would you like today?”

__Me gustaría comprar unas papitas y un refresco. ¿Cuánto cuesta?

“I’d like to buy some chips and a drink (soda). How much is it?”

__Cuesta $2.50. [Dos dólares con cincuenta centavos].

“It’s $2.50.” [Two dollars and fifty cents.]

__Aquí tiene $3.00. [Tres dólares]

“Here’s $3.00.” [Three dollars]

__Aquí tiene su cambio, $0.50 [cincuenta centavos]

“Here’s your change, $0.50.” [fifty cents]

__¡Muchas gracias!

“Thank you , very much!”

__¡Qué tenga buen día!

“Have a nice day!”

__¡Igualmente!

“Same to you!”

 

Explain to students that in Spanish to show that there is dialogue,  you use _ ( a guión) before speaking; In English you use “ …” (quotation marks).

 

Short glossary

 

desea: desire, wish                                                     igualmente: same to you

comprar: to buy                                                         hoy: today

bodega(s): corner store  [Papi store]                         tenga: to have

cambio: change                                                          cuesta: it costs

Activity 5

 

Here are some key phrases to help students review and reinforce.

[student handout in Appendix]

 

Using the list of items of food that you may want to buy at a bodega, use the following format:

 

¿ Cuánto cuestan los refrescos?         ¿ Cuánto cuestan los dulces?

¿ Cuánto cuestan los jugos?               ¿ Cuánto cuesta el café?

¿ Cuánto cuestan los huevos?

 

Now you try. Students will decide what items they wish to buy.

¿Cuánto cuesta(n) _________?

¿ Cuánto cuesta(n) _____?

¿ Cuánto cuesta(n)  ________?

¿ Cuánto cuesta(n)_________?

¿ Cuánto cuesta(n)_________?

¿ Cuánto cuesta(n)_________?

 

Tell students that when the word cuesta ends in an /n/ as in cuestan, that it means the item is plural.

 

Students take turns buying at the Papi Store. This serves as great practice for students. It’s real life experience.       

 

 

Teacher can also bring in items for the students to buy to simulate an in school Papi Store. Students will be able to buy merchandise only if they do so speaking Spanish. This will encourage the use of Spanish speaking and provide students with a tangible real life experience. They can also practice asking for items they would buy in their local neighborhood corner store, the Papi store .     

 

 

Activity 6                  One Fine Morning at the Papi Store

a skit

 

Modeling Role Playing

 

A skit at a Papi store…

Young man enters a Papi store one morning to buy some papitas and un refresco.

­_Bien gracias, ¿y tú?

_Bien gracias.

_¿En qué puedo servirle?

_Don José, quiero comprar unas papitas y un refresco? ¿Cuánto cuestan?

_Las papitas son a $0.75, y la soda cuesta $1.00, un dólar. $1.75 (uno, setenta y cinco)

_Aquí tiene $2.00 (dos dólares)

_Su cambio es $0.25 (veinticinco centavos)

_Muchas gracias, Don José.

_Muchas gracias.

_¡Hasta pronto!

_¡Hasta pronto!

Students: Now you try your hand at writing a skit for your video. Use the words you already know.

Activity 3

 

 

SAYING GOODBYE TO CUSTOMERS

There are more ways to say goodbye, but for purposes of formality, as in business, we shall limit these expressions. Practice with a partner.

 

¡Adios!                        ¡Hasta pronto!                       ¡Hasta mañana!

Good-bye!                   See you soon!                        Until tomorrow! See you tomorrow!

 

For saying goodbye, there is no time of day.

 

¡Adios, señor! Goodbye, sir!                         ¡Hasta pronto, señor!  See you soon, sir!

¡Adios, señora! Goodbye, madame!             ¡Hasta pronto, señora! See you soon, madame!

¡Adios, señorita!  Goodbye. miss                 ¡Hasta pronto, señorita! See you soon, miss!

 

¡Hasta mañana, señor!   See you tomorrow, sir     

¡ Hasta mañana, señora!   See you tomorrow, madame!

¡ Hasta mañana, señorita!  See you tomorrow, miss!

 

* Hasta mañana would be a phrase you might use if this is a regular customer, one that you see every day or often.

YouTube videos in Spanish:  These YouTube commercials serve as models for what teachers may expect as a final product. Over the course of the unit, students will view different videos to help them with the composition of their own videos. Students will view these TV commercials in class. This will provide them with a visual of what they will need to demonstrate, later, in their understanding and interpretation of Spanish, to their classmates. They will have They will create brief lessons using and teaching Spanish to their classmates, thus reinforcing their own language acquisition of Spanish. They will achieve this by producing a YouTube video, on their own.

 

Suggested sites for students to following steps to create a video:

https://www.shopify.com/blog/how-to-make-videos

https://m.wikihow.com/Make-a-YouTube-Vide

*Students are already very adept at creating videos on their own.

 

Teacher introduces the unit by telling the students that this unit is going to be about learning how to speak and practice Spanish in more useful and practical ways. First, they are going to practice Spanish by role playing at a McDonald’s restaurant, buying at their local Papi store, and ordering at a restaurant. This will also be useful later for when they take their field trip to an actual restaurant to practice their Spanish by ordering in Spanish. This is the basis for which the video will be produced.

Teacher then explains that students will view different videos about McDonald’s. The idea of doing this is to expose them to different videos about McDonald’s and provide them with examples. [Assign homework for students to find their favorite McDonald’s commercials, and share in class the next day.]

Teacher will then inform students that at the end of this unit, they will be responsible for producing a 3-5 minute video to showcase and teach their fellow classmates how to speak Spanish by doing one of these:

  • order a McDonald’s breakfast, and drink
  • buy an item at a Papi Store
  • work at a McDonald’s taking an order

Teacher checks for understanding of the goal by asking students to explain the task to another student, who may or may not understand.
