Throughout this Arts-Integrated Assignment, students will make progress towards Language and Intercultural Proficiency by being active participants in: The Telenovela Challenge! Students will have the opportunity to:

Grade 1: Interpret the content two (2) telenovelas by analyzing/translating the script of each one of them (DOK Level 2).

Grade 2: Perform a scripted drama/theatre work by lip-syncing the content two (2) telenovelas. Students should explore physical, vocal and physiological choices to develop a performance that is believable, authentic, and relevant to a drama/theatre work (DOK Level 4).

Grade 3: Create captions for each of the telenovelas, in Spanish and English (DOK Level 4).

Watching telenovelas during this pandemic is an opportunity to bond with friends and newly-made friends. They give us something in common that we could chit-chat about – using the target language: Spanish! They represent something language learners could look forward to and watch together!

Telenovelas diversify our Spanish, as they teach us words and expressions that are useful for explaining all kinds of crazy situations. They also give us the opportunity to use Spanish to genuinely and meaningfully ask others what they do and do not like to watch after we have shared our preferences. Lastly, telenovelas teach language learners a variety slangs to hold fluent conversations with people of all generations!
