This unit, called "El Día Perfecto de Carlos Vives" is for late Spanish 2 and above. It is based on the song/video "Pescaíto" by Carlos Vives ( https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9VjKMTwFXMw ).
This story unit focuses on exposing students to the conditional tense and acquiring some verbs in the conditional so that they are able to say what they and others would do.
In addition to a focus on the conditional, the unit is also wrapped around the song and video "Pescaíto" by Carlos Vives. The description of Carlos Vives' "día perfecto" is written using in the yo form (from Carlos Vives’ perspective) with vocabulary from the song and is illustrated with screenshots from the music video.
There are also several cultural readings and/or activities that explore some of the cultural Products, Practices, and Perspectives in the video. These are all linked in the presentation and in the Pescaíto folder. These are the cultural readings (they are also linked in the presentation):
- Tras La Perla
- Carlos Valderrama AKA El Pibe
- Las Frutas de Colombia
- El Restaurante en Pescaíto: Lulo
- Carnaval en Pescaíto
