  10. 10. [Student Page] Teacher Page Un viaje a España (Teacher) Title A WebQuest for 9th/10th Grade (Spanish Levels I/II) Introduction Designed by Learners Robyn Klein Standards robynk@simla.colostate.edu Process Resources Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion Credits Based on a template from The WebQuest Page
  11. 11. [Student Page] Teacher Page Introduction (Teacher) This lesson was developed as part of the Poudre School District’s curriculum to Title meet foreign language standards concerning culture. The lesson exposes the Introduction students to many cultural aspects about Spain that they may not have been aware of before. It also helps to dispel any stereotypes and helps to distinguish between Learners Mexican culture, which many of them are more familiar with, and Spanish culture. Standards This lesson is divided into 3 sections, history, culture, and food, and specific groups of students are the experts on each of them. The students are then to present in Process front of the class so that every student will have a basic knowledge of each of the three aspects. Students will examine the history, culture, and food in 5 different Resources regions of Spain so that they understand there are differences within the country itself. Overall, this lesson if completely properly will provide students with a solid Evaluation understanding of Spanish culture. Teacher Script Conclusion Credits
  12. 12. [Student Page] Teacher Page Learners (Teacher) This lesson is designed for 9th and 10th grade Spanish students who are at Levels Title I/II in their Spanish learning. I have chosen to have them research and conduct their Introduction projects entirely in English because many of them do not have the firm grasp of Spanish necessary to complete such an extensive project. Furthermore, it is more Learners important to me at this point that my students obtain a strong understanding of the history, culture, and food of Spain and I wanted them to do this comfortably instead Standards of struggling through the material. However, the lesson could be extended to higher levels of Spanish by simply choosing websites that are written in Spanish and Process having the students conduct their projects in Spanish as well. Resources The learners will need to have a basic knowledge of the language of Spanish, but not a lot. They certainly do not have to have any background of the history, culture, Evaluation or food of Spain as this lesson is designed to provide them with this knowledge Teacher Script Conclusion Credits
  13. 13. [Student Page] Teacher Page Curriculum Standards (Teacher) The students will learn basic information about the history, culture, and food of 5 Title different regions of Spain: Madrid, Granada, Barcelona, Sevilla, and Toledo. From Introduction this they will be able to making comparisons and connections and further their cultural understanding of Spanish speaking countries. Learners Foreign Language Standards Addressed Standards * Students acquire and use knowledge of cultures while developing foreign language Process skills. * Demonstrate knowledge of aspects of foreign cultures such as daily life, education, Resources history, geography, government, economics, and the arts * Discussing components of the social patterns of the cultures being studied Evaluation In addition to meeting this standards the students built other skills. They needed to Teacher Script work together in small groups and come up with a creative way to present their Conclusion information to the rest of their classmates. This lesson is also the base for me to have them make connections and comparisons between life in the US and life in Spain. Credits
  14. 14. [Student Page] Teacher Page The Process (Teacher) To examine the process for the students visit the “student” process slide . There are Title three: one for the historians, one for the cultural experts, and one for the gourmet Introduction chefs. The link takes you first to the historians and the following two slides describe the other two roles. Learners Once the students are grouped, the process is virtually the same for all students. Standards They are to use the websites I have provided to find information regarding their specific topics and then think of a creative way to present the information to the Process class. This lesson will take approximately a full week of classes to complete. The first day is the grouping and introduction to the WebQuest. They will roughly have Resources two days to research, one day to create the presentation, and the final day each group will present. Evaluation Is it single disciplinary, interdisciplinary, multidisciplinary or what? Teacher Script I will group the students ahead of time and already have them assigned to their topic Conclusion before introducing it to them to avoid any conflicts they have will the topics or group members. I expect some might be disappointed with their topic, but if I assign it ahead of time there will not be as many disputes. In order to make it fair, the group members themselves will be assigned so that there are varying levels of abilities in each group. This lesson is easy to do for any level of teacher as long as the teacher examines the websites beforehand and has a general idea of the information that she wants her students to pick up on. Also, it is key that the teacher is constantly checking in with the students to make sure they are collecting the right information and presenting it in an appropriate manner. Variations If you would like to make the WebQuest more applicable for higher level Spanish students, I suggest finding websites in Spanish and having them complete their Credits projects in Spanish as well.
  15. 15. [Student Page] Teacher Page Resources (Teacher) The resources needed for the students are: Title •A class Blackboard account, or some way in which the students have access to the Introduction WebQuest from both school and home. (Possibly publish it on the internet as well) •Be prepared to provide your students with materials they may need to do their Learners presentations. This may include: powerpoint, large paper for drawing, props, etc •The final portion of this unit is the students getting to make a few of the traditional Standards Spanish dishes. If you choose to do this, you will need to talk to your cafeteria about using the facility or the Home Economics teacher and be prepared to buy Process ingredients for the dishes yourself. Resources I highly recommend thoroughly examining the websites used in the WebQuest and deciding ahead of time things you want the students to focus on so you will be Evaluation prepared to help and guide them. http://www.spanish-town-guides.com/ (Historians) Teacher Script http://www.toledo-spain.info/history.html http://www.culturecrossing.net/basics_business_student.php?id=189 (Culture) Conclusion http://www.donquijote.org/culture/spain/flamenco/ http://picasso.tamu.edu/picasso/ http://www.sallys-place.com/food/cuisines/spain.htm (Food) http://www.sallys-place.com/food/cuisines/mexico.htm http://www.jrnet.com/travel/articles/dining.html http://www.euroresidentes.com/euroresiuk/Recipies/Recipies.htm As far as the WebQuest portion of the assignment goes, I believe one teacher will be sufficient to manage the class. However, additional aides are always a help in any classroom. Also, if you choose to do the cooking portion, I highly suggest you ask for the help of the kitchen staff or fellow teacher to make sure the students are behaving. Credits
  16. 16. [Student Page] Teacher Page Evaluation (Teacher) I will use the rubric below to grade the content and presentation of the students. I Title will be looking for creativity, quality of information found, and depth of understanding, Introduction and how well the students worked together. Also, I will be making sure that the other students are paying attention to the presentations and taking notes because I Learners plan on implementing the information as part of the unit exam. In this manner the students will be assessed on both the project and retaining the information for the Standards test.

  17. 17. [Student Page] Teacher Page Teacher Script (Teacher) 1. Introduce the topic of the culture of Spain to your students. Ask them if they Title know anything about the history, culture, or food. Introduction 2. Introduce them to the WebQuest. Go over each step and slide with them as a class, describing the tasks for each role, the websites, and answering questions Learners they may have. 3. Divide them into their pre-assigned groups and again ask for questions they may Standards have now since they are in their groups. (The first 3 steps should take one class) Process 4. Over the next two classes let the students explore their topics, but be sure to check up on them daily and guide them to the material they should be focusing Resources on. Encourage the students to begin to think about creative ways to present the material they are finding Evaluation 5. The fourth class period should be devoted to creating their presentations. Provide students with materials and guidance as they need it. Make sure they Teacher Script are aware that they may have to work on their presentation outside of class. Conclusion This work may be done away from the computer if their presentation does not require it. 6. Finally, the fifth day of class will be devoted to listening to each group present their material. Afterwards, you may want to compile some questions to tie each topic together and expand the material. Some questions can be found in the Conclusion portion of the students’ WebQuest. 7. If you would like to create a few dishes with the students, this will take place another day and will most likely take the entire class period. Be sure you have the ingredients, a place to cook that will accommodate your class, and extra help to ensure safety and good behavior of the students. This page is linked to the Process segment off of the Teacher Page to provide you will additional information if necessary. Credits
  18. 18. [Student Page] Teacher Page Conclusion (Teacher) This lesson is incredibly worthwhile because half of learning a foreign language is Title learning the culture and historical aspects from the point of view of the native Introduction Spanish speaker. It is also important to demonstrate that each Spanish speaking country is unique and has its own food, history, and culture. It is important to get Learners this point across as soon as possible in my opinion because many first time Spanish students hold onto a lot of stereotypes and myths involving cultural aspects. By Standards exposing them, however, you can expel many of those stereotypical thoughts quickly. Process Resources Evaluation Teacher Script Conclusion Credits
