Los derechos de voto
Consisting of 18 Conexiones, each with 5 lessons, the VIF Spanish Language Arts course emphasizes reading, writing and speaking in the target language through the investigation of current global issues and by focusing on developing vocabulary and teaching specific Spanish grammar rules.
Our middle school Global Gateway curriculum is designed to provide you and your students with essential attitudes, skills and knowledge for global citizenship, while exploring the complexity of current global issues. Through embedded social entrepreneurship principles, it promotes an understanding of the student as an active participant in the world, with an important role and crucial responsibilities.
The curriculum is aligned to the Common Core Standards, P21 Standards - 21st Century Skills, National Educational Technology Standards, and Career Technical Education Standards and organized in the following six main themes: Global Society, Global Geography, Global Environment, Global Education, Global Economy, Global Politics.
"Los derechos de voto" is one of three in a Global Politics unit. Students will explore the impact of global political systems on everyday life, as well as the complex process countries use to make political decisions both internally and globally. Students will investigate forms of government and voting rights, relating these concepts to selected social entrepreneurship regions of study. Students will learn grammar concepts including: the use of the subjunctive with expressions of emotion, desire, influence and doubt.
1) How have voting rights changed over time in the United States?
2) Why is it important to vote?
3) How can I use the subjunctive to express the differences between our government and that of another country?
