This project uses Twitter to give students the opportunity to communicate via social media in the target language. Twitter has proven to be an excellent tool for writing and corresponding in a relevant and authentic way. My students have really enjoyed using it throughout the semester and even beyond their matriculation in class.
This interdisciplinary lesson combines Spanish language, history, art, and cultural studies. Students annotate historical moments contained in an authentic text (Renau’s mural). By the end of the semester, students will have generated a complete timeline of the events studied in class. Students also create their own artwork related to another moment in history and add it to the timeline.
Inspired by real estate television shows like House Hunters International, students use the houses listed on authentic real estate websites to select a house that fits within their budget, space, and style requirements. As students practice house vocabulary, they are also learning about typical housing styles in another country.
Students will analyze and discuss the information related to the United Nations 17 Sustainability Development Goals on the "Les Objectifs de développement durable" website. In small groups, they will choose one francophone country and 5 of the 17 United Nations goals. After doing some research, students will use Utellstory.com to illustrate how they would implement the 5 chosen goals in their country of choice. Each goal will be represented by an image, an explanatory text, and an oral narrative. ACTFL interpretive, interpersonal and presentational communication modes will be activated as well.
This is a writing exercise for a novice German class focussing on writing a fictional personal ad. The exercise is built around the tool PADLET which allows students to share their writing in real time with their classmates. This project comes with a video that talks about the advantages of this exercise but it also points out what instructors need to be aware of. An additional tutorial that shows you how to set up PADLET is added as a link.
