I use this poem to discuss relationships. It is an amazing poem and students debated about who the recipient of the poem was, mother, spouse, child, etc.
This resource includes a blurb about the author, cloze text poem and student poem sections. Here is how I used it in class.
Teacher's questions (there are three questions in the document)
1. Who is this poem written to? (Destinatario) How do you know? Choose one verse to support your answer.
2. What is your favorite verse of the poem and why? Explain
3. Create three more verses in the spirit of the poem (also included in the document).
The coolest thing about this was that students recreated some of the same nuances in the poem such as " Quiero que me abraces sin asfixiarme." I had one student who said " Quiero que salgas sin dejarme.- That is deep!
Quiero que me _______, sin juzgarme. (oír)
Quiero que ______, sin aconsejarme. (opinar)
Quiero que confíes, en mi, sin exigirme.
Quiero que me ______, sin intentar decidir por mi. (ayudar)
Quiero que me _______, sin anularme. (cuidar)
Quiero que me _______, sin proyectar tus cosas en mi. (mirar)
Overall good discussion!
