This IPA is designed for students who are studying volunteering/ informal commands/ future tense (all tenses). Because students are at different levels in different modes of communication, I have included the performance goals from novice mid to intermediate high. Ideally, I would use this for my Spanish III students because of their volunteering/ informal command knowledge.
Consider purchasing the Story Telling Unit that goes along with this IPA!
I introduce this unit with a lot of comprehensible input, preloading the vocabulary. The interpretive listening section is a video from a woman from Spain. She uses some colloquial/ regional terms in the video, so it might be a good idea to make sure your students understand those certain terms.
Slide 3 is a chart of the performance indicators where you/ they can establish learning goals. I use this as a rubric & establish grades. Students may not be in one indicator for each of the modes of communication. You can establish goals for each performance area.
Slide 4 contains a vocabulary grid where students can create their interpretation of the vocabulary while you are teaching the unit/ before completing the interpretive listening portion.
Slides 5-6 is the Interpretive Listening task where students will watch & listen to an authentic resource. They will answer questions about what they heard & saw. The goal of watching the video is not to have students understand every single word, but have them grasp the main ideas which is why the goal for interpretive listening for my students is intermediate mid, anything above is a bonus. **NOTE** In this video, the woman speaks extremely fast, even for my taste. You can have your students go to the settings (on the video) & select a more accommodating speed (I used .75). They can also use the closed captioning feature.
Slides 7-11 is the Interpretive Reading task where students will use the given scenario & an image to successfully answer the questions.
Slide 12 is the Presentational Writing portion of the assessment where students will use what they know to write using the future tense. Other tenses will also be used.
Slides 13- 14 are rubrics that can be used to give feedback to your students.
Slides 15 is the Presentational Speaking contain the prompt as well as screenshots to help guide students’ conversations.
Slides 16-18 are suggested Interpretive answer keys. You can always make this what you want.
