This is a webquest where students research a career they are interested in, and find out basic information about the job (title, pay, starting pay, educational needs, characteristics, daily activities), and write down that information in Spanish. There are no specific grammar points, more it is a use and practice of the vocabulary terms for Realidades 3 Ch. 5, which are included in the webquest to help.
First students pick a career that interests them, and find out how to say that career in Spanish. Then, they use the interwebs to respond to prompts in 4 categories of the jobs in question: Salary and Benefits, education requirements, personality traits, and daily activities. The students respond in short answer form, using the vocab that is provided.
After they have done their research, they engage in an interpersonal scavenger hunt, where they have to find ten other jobs, based on whether their salary is higher or lower, their academic needs are similar or different, or the daily activities are similar or different than their own job.
Finally, I have included a cloze activity with sentence starters, where students complete a general description of the job in paragraph form.
I know, right? Pretty fun, and comprehensive, and the students really enjoy finding out the steps they need to do to make their goal a reality.
I use this in conjunction with Realidades 3 Chapter 5, but it is only really a starting point. For our unit, I use this to create resumes in Spanish with the present perfect, culminating with interviews (in Spanish) with community members from various organizations. If you are interested in how that works, drop me a message and we can talk.
