7 minute listening activity on Colombia's telenovela "Yo soy Betty, la fea".
I always start my lesson on Beauty and Aesthetics for AP Spanish with this activity.
First students must write adjectives about the two characters based on the appearance. For the most part students write negative stereotypes for Betty and positive ones for the other Colombian model. Then after watching the videos, they learn about how those people really feel and students usually decide to change their answer.
Then, students must imagine and re-write the scenario with boys. For the most part, students respond saying that boys face social pressures as well. Very interesting and engaging activity!
Includes writing activity and questions to answer while watching the 7 minute clip.
