This is an interpersonal activity where students poll classmates relating to how they interact with their parents/guardians, and what rules they have in place in their home. For example, one student asks 15 other students a question regarding dating, and they have to respond whether it is permitted, forbidden, the students decide, doesn't apply, some limits, or no limits. The student then checks which box applies, and analyzes the responses by creating a bar graph in Spanish. There are 20 separate questions, so that smaller classes can work individually and larger classes can work in pairs.
The activity is modeled on Act 31 on Page 131 of the Realidades 3 series, and I use some of the prompts from the poll that is in the activity. However, I have removed gendered questions about makeup and earrings, and have replaced them with questions regarding screen time, cell phone use, homework completion, and other activities typically limited or controlled by parents.
I use this activity in conjunction with the book. I have students either present the graphs or post them on the walls, and we make comparisons between the results of the book survey and those from each graph. This is a stand alone activity, and a way to synthesize the information class wide would be to present each graph in circles, and have each group talk about similarities and differences of their results.
I also have my students come up with subjunctive sentences from this activity, using starters like: "Para los padres de esta clase, es importante que...".
This activity practices speaking, reading, listening, and writing, and goes well with any chapter regarding interpersonal relationships.
Finally, I have this in word format, as I have some questions regarding sexuality, drug use, and alcohol consumption. These are topics that we discuss in class, and are important to my students. If you don't feel comfortable with those questions (4 in total), you can leave them out or change them.
