In this full class lesson students learn about Cuban-American (Afro-Cuban) actor Laz Alonso and watch a video interview with him (https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=22&v=JBWPYYh6cv0 - or google Laz Alonso, Straw Dogs, Juan Rótulo) After watching the video the first time there are 10 questions, 5 about the video and 5 personal. While watching the video the second time students complete an activity (fill in the missing word) with 38 verbs in the imperfect or preterite. Grammar reinforcement with 8 of the verbs (conjugations) follows (if desired). A link to the editable Google Doc is included, as well as an answer sheet. Great for AP or any upper level class review of the preterite and imperfect in context, and works well with AP Spanish (Identidad Personal y Pública).
