Un Besito Más... again

What a powerful and heartbreaking video! As a runner (whose mom still supports her at races) this video really struck me. Arianne Dowd and I created some free resources (here) and I used it in my Cultura y Civilización course last semester in my immigration unit. 

But, now, I am in the middle of my inmigración unit in Spanish 1, so I have made something for Novices. I wrote up a basic story about the video. You can find the story, a basic cloze activity, and a translation of the song here for free. 

I will probably use this story for a Story Listening Activity first, and then do the activity sheet and some of these activities: Textivate and Quizizz.

I love doing this unit in Spanish 1. This is a mostly freshmen class and they really don't know much at all about immigration. By using engaging CI stories IN SPANISH (with some facts in Spanish along the way), my big goals for this unit are the following:
  • I want students to understand that immigrants (documented and undocumented) come to the U.S. for a variety of reasons, including: for work, for family, for more opportunities, for safety, and for many other reasons. 
  • I want students to have empathy for undocumented immigrants.
  • I want students to know that immigration is very complicated and it is not possible to "deport them all" (a common comment).
  • I want students to understand that most undocumented immigrants are contributing to our society and our culture. 
So, how to do this??? I am using three stories: ICE El Hielo, Un Besito Más, and The Other Side; and one movie: La Misma Luna. And sprinkling in some factual information throughout the unit... all in Comprehensible Spanish! So, yes, it is possible to teach this in the TL.

I am sharing all of this for FREE, but if you think this (or anything else that you got here for free) is useful and has saved you some time, feel free to give back here in Radiohead style (click here to see what I mean by Radiohead style).

  1. Hi Kara! I have a question regarding the new version of the "EXAMEN - Inmigración, ICE El Hielo, Un Besito Más y La Misma Luna." For part one, it says listen to the descriptions of the characters, but the hyperlink doesn't allow access to the video and/or audio on Flipgrid. Any information you can provide is so greatly appreciated! Thank you for all that you do!
