Spanish Preterite vs. Imprefect - "Ladrones de zapatos"
Students will practice the preterite vs. the imperfect by analyzing an authentic news article in Spanish published by the newspaper El País from Uruguay. The article talks about a dumb group of thieves who robbed hundreds of shoes, but all from the same foot. This authentic material is used with the permission of the copyright holder.
I created these activities for my Spanish 2 and 3 when studying the preterite vs. the imperfect.
The activities included will provide students with practice in the use of the preterite vs. the imperfect, Spanish reading comprehension and new vocabulary.
The materials include:
• Lesson description and objectives
• Teaching tips
• A guide in how to tackle new vocabulary
• A list of possible cognates found in the article
• The original 3-paragraph article form the newspaper El País (Uruguay)
• A grammar activity where students identify the preterite and the imprefect
• Comprehension questions
• Answer keys for the grammar activity and comprehension questions
These materials are great for students to practice the preterite vs. the imperfect. They can see how these two tenses are used in real life by real native speakers. Also, it is a fantastic opportunity for students to practice reading comprehension in general. The activities would be great for sub work as well.
