This is a comprehensive jigsaw reading and interpersonal activity that follows a wiki post on how to be a good student. It takes place over two days, with the following activities.
--Students read sections of a text on how to be a good student and respond in the present perfect whether they do or not do the recommended activity
---Students work with a group to find the two best recommendations, and create present perfect questions in order to poll the class.
--- Students ask other students if they do those activities, and record responses in a chart.
---Students create a graph based on the responses to the questions.
---Students synthesize information about all of the graphs to describe how their class are and aren't good students,
---- respond personally to how they will be better students in the future.
This is a very comprehensive activity, which gives practice in:
---reading and marking texts
--- finding main ideas in Spanish
--- using the present perfect in tu, yo, nosotros both aural and written, to say what you have accomplished
---reflection on how they can become better students.
---reflection on what makes a good student
---interpersonal questions and responses
---recording data and charting responses.
---synthesizing data from multiple sources to infer general meaning and conclusions.
---- supporting conclusions with data.
This is an excellent way to introduce AP/act logic and reasoning into your Spanish curriculum, and is a very good activity to present to administration for review. I use it for Spanish 2 and 3, depending on the class, but it could be used for Spanish 4 and 5 as well.
Can be used in conjunction with Realidades 2 6b.
