PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

The Perfect 20 Second Intro to Your World Events Activity. I wanted to improve my students' reading because I noticed that some would stop reading if they found a word they didn't know and give up.

They weren't trained to go on and circle back for meaning, and I needed to model this important skill to them.

I found an engaging and quick way to model reading for them every day using world events, not necessarily just related to Spanish-speaking countries, starting in the third quarter for Spanish One and the first quarter for Spanish Two.

My Spanish 1 students report to me that few people read the newspapers in their homes - their parents read the news from the internet.

Only a handful of my students read the news - and they share that they love reading the news with me!

Starting with the third quarter, I introduce the news with this video and they love imitating the voice and the cadence and the words.

I usually pick something from BBC Mundo and look for headlines with cognates and vocabulary words. I steer away from upsetting news for my seventh graders. My freshmen can handle more compelling topics.

I use the snipping tool to capture the headline and the picture and we usually read the first paragraph or else the caption under the picture. I read it first in Spanish. Then, as a class, we go over the meaning.

Frequently students tell me that they something about 'las noticias' was on the news or someone mentioned the event - just like in Spanish class. These three minutes a day help the students to see my class as being a link to the rest of the world and many mention at the end of the year that this class got them to start following the news more.

Compelling Visual and Audio Comprehensible Input that sticks in students' brains and pops out spontaneously! Stay in the target language and improve classroom behavior! Use these three steps to take charge of your transitions.

1. Make a slide for each activity in today’s lesson.

2. Insert one of my brief 50+ transition videos before the slide and train your students to watch the video in Spanish. Soon they are imitating the voice over or else singing the song. Do this every day and when you are observed by your administrators they will note your seamless transitions.

3. Buy a remote presentation device or wireless mouse and click to the next slide from any part of the room so you can stand close to students who struggle to behave.



♥ ♥ ♥ This video is 20 seconds long and is intended to be a brief transition for students as you read the headlines from a current event. I use BBC Mundo almost daily to showcase our vocabulary being used not just in a classroom but in the news. Students love watching the drawing become a photo. They find it interesting.

♥ ♥ ♥ It is spoken by a native speaker who works as a professional media voice-over.

♥ ♥ ♥ Play and students will soon be repeating “Y ahora las noticias interncacionales” in an exaggerated voice.
