La graduación = La libertad

Have you seen Álvaro Soler's new song/video "La libertad"? I love it and here is why:
  • Álvaro Soler sings it and students like everything that he does.
  • It has a great message.
  • It is catchy.
  • It is super repetitive.
  • It is pretty comprehensible.
  • The vocabulary that is not comprehensible is excellent for students to acquire: aguantar, hogar, picaba, parar, olvidé, más allá, acaba de... among others. 
  • The video is very appropriate (with the exception of a few quick shots of some drinks that may or may not be alcoholic).

I am currently teaching my AP Spanish class with some special seniors (four that I have had for this full year for 85 minutes a day, four that I traveled to Ecuador with this past summer,  and one that I have had for four different classes) and some special juniors too... so when I saw this song, I thought it would be a perfect connection to graduation... because:
  • Graduation from high school = (some) FREEDOM! 
So I wrote up a little story (it is very basic and possibly kinda lame) that incorporates some of the lyrics from the song. I also made a few activities with the song lyrics. You can find it here, make a copy and change it to fit your school.
