What educators are saying

I just love the song and the resources, as usual, are fantastic. The activities explain the title of the song and provide a bit of geography too!
My students loved engaging with culture and I loved that they could read about the song and be engaged while doing so! All of Martina's resources are EXCELLENT!
Also included in
  1. This bundle of six songs for Spanish class is a must-have! It includes lesson plans and activities for six songs that students (and their overly enthusiastic Spanish teachers) LOVE. All of the lesson plans provide multiple opportunities for students to interact with and explore the meaning of the so

"La Gozadera" is a student favorite AND is rich in cultural references begging to be unpacked! This reggaeton-meets-salsa anthem from 2016 is perfect to use in Spanish 1 and beyond. The materials in this product can be used consecutively, in sequence, or the teacher choose to use one activity per day for a series of days while teaching other, possibly unrelated content for the remainder of each class period.

This activity pack includes

  • a discussion-based introduction activity that targets the verb 'divertirse' and the adjective 'divertido'
  • a Spanish language teacher script for the first 40 seconds of the music video to use for MovieTalk or for storytelling
  • a reading in Spanish about the meaning of the expression "se formó la gozadera" that is comprehensible for Spanish 1 students. The reading is included in handout and slideshow form.
  • a slide in Spanish with background information on Gente de Zona and the song Gozadera
  • comprehension questions and an informal creative writing activity based on the reading
  • a labeled map of the Americas with tasks to complete as students listen to the song (five tasks so that students can complete a different one on each of five listens)
  • a blank map of the Americas for students to label when ready
  • a lyrics page
  • brief, paragraph-length readings in Spanish about 'arroz con habichuela', 'la tambora merenguera', 'la sandunga (zandunga)', and 'bilirrubina'
  • comprehension questions for the lyrics and cultural readings
  • a Spanish-English lyrics translation page
  • projectable slides for all readings
  • answer keys
  • detailed lesson plans/suggested sequence of activities

The music video which you can preview here is likely not appropriate for all school settings. Many of the activities in this pack depend on the ability to see the music video, so if you should not show this video in your particular class situation, please do not purchase these plans. (I would have shown the video in my 6-8 public school classes, but I would not have shown it in my 6-12 parochial school classes.)


**This song is also available in this bundle of six "CANCIONES CONTAGIOSAS"**
