A few years ago while I was subbing for a Spanish AP teacher who was on maternity leave, I happened upon a very humorous youtube video. It was made in Spain, and I have to be honest about this. Although I can understand people from Mexico, Costa Rica, Argentina, etc., I had a little trouble with the speaker's "th" sound for "c" and "z". Normally, I can understand people from Spain also, but this young gentleman was talking really FAST, so I knew it would be very hard for the students to even hear what he was saying. I performed the tedious job of scripting the video so that we could use this approach: First we watched a short scene. Then we read and discussed the script until everyone was comfortable with what he was saying. Then we watched the scene again.
He is talking to the young generation of people who are totally "hooked" on the computer, explaining that there is a NEW devise available for communication, which he calls "BOOK." He even shows how you can use a PEN to input your thoughts and a BOOKMARK to be able to locate the last item you were researching. You don't need batteries, you don't need to worry about finding an electrical outlet. Somehow he manages to remain totally serious. Since these were AP students, they understood the explanations and enjoyed the project. Even lower level students could benefit from going over the script and viewing the program.
I happened upon my file with the lesson the other day, viewed the video again and it was even funnier. Since I now know how to share on TPT, I am giving this to all Spanish teachers, their colleagues and friends. ENJOY!
