Beginning Spanish students listen to this classic Cuban song, learn about culture & Jose Marti's poetry, and also complete a close reading activity with Common Core aligned Text Dependent Questions.
The listing includes 3 pages of student activities in pdf form:
1. Song Lyrics
2. Standards, Pre-listening, and Close Reading Steps
3. Text Dependent Questions based on the song
I also include suggestions about how to structure the activity (lesson plan), a youtube link to the song, and a key.
The activity should take about 40 - 60 minutes depending on how in depth you go with the analysis piece. This is a very engaging way to tie in common core standards, address culture, and practice listening in the target language! I use it with my beginning classes, but it would be appropriate for intermediate levels as well.
