The current unit is "Un Accidente,"which I actually find to be a very useful unit! I really realized that when I had to go to a clinic and a hospital with a student in Costa Rica and he was able to communicate about what happened to him!
I thought I would share in case anyone can use some of the resources for a health related unit. This is a work in progress and definitely still a hybrid/bridge unit!!
These are the "Essential Questions":
- How do I explain what happened if someone (including myself) has an accident and/or needs medical assistance?
- What are some cultural products, practices, perspectives in the song “La Curandera”?
- What are some common illnesses that people have to be aware of in Latin America?
And these are the "I can" statements:
- Listen to and understand a story, “Ya está muerto,” about a time when someone was in the hospital.
- Explain what happened in the story, “Ya está muerto”.
- Describe what happened if someone (including myself) has an accident and/or needs medical assistance.
- Interpret and explain information about a common illness in some parts of Latin America from infografías and PSA.
- Compare and contrast the cultural products, practices, and perspectives in the song “La Curandera” with my own cultural products, practices, and perspectives.
- Use the preterite, imperfect, reflexives verbs, and indirect object pronouns with more accuracy.
- The song/video, embedded readings for (love these to lead up to the video!!), and nuggets for "Ya está muerto" from Sr. Wooly. Definitely recommend a subscription to his site!
- Some activities with two infografías and two PSAs about el dengue. Click here to access the doc and make a copy if you want it.
