Shado el Carterista is a Google Slide deck that scaffolds a YouTube video from Got Talent España into meaningful and fun classroom learning. The structure of this presentation is one we use frequently. Big, punchy text that focuses on isolated spoken language in the real world. We break up the video in segments to ensure students aren’t overwhelmed.
This presentation was designed to teach or review introductory conversations including: hola, ¿Qué tal?, bien, bienvenidos, ¿Cómo te llamas?, Me llamo, and soy. Additionally, this interactive begins to look at language patterns in a more practical way. Eventually, students will be faced with many verb tenses that notoriously cause headaches for all parties involved. However, the In Plain Spanish approach addresses these conjugations as patterns. We have verb patterns, yes, but also there are noun, adjective and adverb patterns that are just as common.In this slide deck, we learn two incredibly common patterns for creating adjectives and nouns from English cognates. Students will be able to create a few thousand words in Spanish just by understanding a few basic patterns.
