Since I am teaching Upper School this year, I am reteaching some medical words. We use two different books, so this unit happens to fall in both Spanish I in the Middle School and Spanish II in the Upper School. I have been trying to get a few new authentic resources to use since my students have used the same ones last year. Here are some of my favorites:
- I was looking for a video clip, and I thought about telenovelas! Someone is always about to die in those, so I found this clip. I only used about the first two minutes of the video.
- Also, I like to educate my students on how to prevent the flu. (I wouldn’t mind avoiding it this year either…) I like this article to explain it.
- For an upper level, this article discusses the risks of texting to your hands and fingers.
- This is one of my favorite infographics about the flu especially because of the great graphic in the middle.
- Although this is not an authentic resource, I really like the University of Texas’s Spanish proficiency listening activities. They have great ones about explaining an ailment to a doctor.
- Finally, I had my students describe what is happening in this video (Aldrey’s La Lista). It is one of my favorite all time videos! I then had students brainstorm about what would be on their “list.”
