I LOVE having a series ongoing in my classes. We watch on Fridays and do a variety of "input-driven" activities before and/or after watching segmentes.
I love using Go! Vive a tu manera in class. It is a staple in our Spanish 3 classes and, usually, our 4/5/6 classes. However, for a variety of reasons (some related to some of my current students associating it with the pandemic and a hybrid schedule), I am not using it with my Spanish 4/5/6 class.
So, what to use?! I used Gran Hotel last year with half of the students in the class and that was successful, but I can't use that because some haven't seen it and some have seen 4 episodes.
So, I decided to let students choose between three (appropriate!) options on Disney+.
I love what they are doing before we get ready to watch an episode of each show next week (Winter Carnival week and the week before our February vacation).
Here is what we did for Siempre fui yo and Tierra Incógnita. I got this idea from Anne Marie Chase and adapted it a bit. I took the drawings from each group (5 grupos of 3-4 students) and students had two votes for the nomination round and then we had voted for the two with the most votes. It was so fun and silly and... they were re-reading the sinopsis and understanding what the series was about.
Next, students will read sentences from both trailers and will guess which trailer each sentence might be in:
