Kids love the thought of driving a car, and you love Spanish. I've put the two together into a simulator unlike anything you've ever seen.

This file behaves like a tablet "app," with tons of tactile opportunities to engage the imagination and foster output in the TL. To begin, there are 15 or so dashboard controls that you can demonstrate on the overhead, like wipers, lights, gas, brakes, windows, and so on. If your student can say "Sube la ventana," for example, you can make it happen.

After that, there are 16 scenarios, many in a culturally immersive setting, which require in-class communication to resolve. For example, one icon takes you to a car driving down the road, veering all over it, because the driver is texting with both hands. Soon, a police officer appears in the rearview, lights and sirens on. What should your students say to the driver? "Para el carro," or "Necesitas recibir tu multa," or whatever you have taught, your students then state. You click on the turn signal, and now the car is pulled over. "Baja la ventana y ofr├ęcele tu licencia," say your students to the Mexican girl on the screen. You click the window button, the window goes down, and then you click on the girl's arm, and she sticks her license out the window. There are 16 scenarios like that one! Further, they can be strung together to create stories, which your students can then narrate in voz alta or in writing.

After that, there are two types of activities for navigating a map in Mexicali, complete with dozens of suggestions and examples of how to use them. Everything is scaffolded and differentiation is simple to do as well. Your kids will learn a lot about transportation and much cultural background about northwestern Mexico, as well.

You love Spanish, they love driving. With this "app," your kids will be motivated to produce artifacts about the themes that are important to you and your department while communicating inside a scenario with cultural context. Thanks for reading!
