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 lessons based on various festivals that take place in Spain. Each on is ready to print & go, requires 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 important and interesting information related to a different Spanish festival and asks them to use higher-order thinking skills, problem solving, and critical thinking skills to understand the culture behind that tradition.
Spanish Festivals in these lessons include:
-La Tomatina (Buñol)
-Las Fallas (Valencia)
-Semana Grande (Bilbao)
-Cristianos y Moros
-Bizarre Spanish Festivals
Students will work step by step to learn about each celebration through a series of activities that ask them to use what they have learned and apply it to the present day, make cultural inferences about the purpose and origin of these traditions, and compare these events to events in their own culture and others. Each lesson asks students to think about the festival in the larger cultural context as they make observations and consider some thought provoking questions.
These lessons are fully aligned with the ACTFL cultural competencies for world language learners and also can be used to address several of the culture themes found on the AP Spanish test.
