Spanish Culture through Music: Activities for Ruben Blades "Desaparecidos" (también Desapariciones)

*Great for Spanish Preterite ( Preterit ) and Imperfect*

This is an engaging bundle of activities that utilizes multimedia and cultural discussion to bring your students into the language and culture during their study of the preterite and imperfect tenses.

This can serve as a practice lesson after the introduction of the preterite and imperfect tenses, or as a cultural activity at ANY point during the year. The sensitive theme helps students to take the lesson seriously and give thoughtful opinions.

The bundle includes:
*Lyrics in Spanish
*Questions to spark thoughts/reflection on two separate videos
*Comprehension/cultural questions
*Topics for research and cultural discussion

Students first watch the video (it can be found on youtube and is very visually stunning and engaging) and listen to the words of the song. During the second play of the video, students should read along in Spanish/English. Students can then take a few minutes to complete the comprehension questions, and research any of the topics provided. These topics should provide for a varied cultural discussion that promotes acceptance and open-mindedness as well as language learning.

There is a second video suggested that gives a glimpse into life during this difficult time. Students are then asked to make connections to the world today.

My students have truly enjoyed this cultural lesson in the past, and I hope it is a lesson that you can use year after year!
