World language teachers often try to avoid days of direct instruction. But there is always a point in every unit when the students need that direct guidance. For each of those lessons I have created a notes presentation. Each notes file includes a PowerPoint presentation and an interactive student notes guide. I also included PDF versions of both, which would be easy to post online for students who are absent.
Since many teachers try to keep direct instruction to a minimum of class time or are trying to run a flipped classroom, I tried to make each PowerPoint presentation as efficient as possible. With that in mind, the meat of the explanation is clear and concise in English. The notes include direct instruction and a few examples to practice, but they do not include games and interpersonal activities – that is intentional so that flipped classrooms can keep the instruction self-guided without class activities.
These notes review ser vs. estar intended for level 3 or 4 learners. These notes coordinate with our Spanish 4 textbook series. It goes into details like using ser for locations of events.
