These Spanish sub plans can be carried out by any sub while you are out of the classroom. Even better, you won't have to feel guilty that your students aren't learning while you are gone!
This set includes 5 full classes of art/culture lessons that are ready to print & go, require no technology, do not require the sub to produce any Spanish, and can be differentiated for any level of Spanish class.
Each lesson walks students through the interpretation of a famous work of art by artists Pablo Picasso, Diego Rivera, Joan Miró, Frida Kahlo, and Fernando Botero.
Students will work step by step to interpret the art through a series of brainstorming, sorting and categorizing activities. Once they have recorded their own interpretation of the art, they will read a short excerpt that relates the piece of art to something cultural or historical from real life. They will then be asked to think about the art in that new context as they answer some thought provoking questions.
Works of Art included in this lesson:
-"Guernica" by Pablo Picasso
-"Dream of a Sunday Afternoon at Alameda Park" by Diego Rivera
-"Tree of Hope, Remain Strong" by Frida Kahlo
-"Carnival of Harlequin" by Joan Miró
-"Guerilla de Eliseo Velasquez" by Fernando Botero
These lessons are fully aligned with the ACTFL cultural competencies for foreign language learners and also can be used to address several of the culture themes found on the AP Spanish test.
