Whimsical Dialogues for Upper Level Classes
On Monday, give the students the English dialogue. Do not give them the Spanish version.
Each day, put the Spanish example on the smartboard before the students have practiced.
Working with different students every day of the week, the students should first read the Spanish version out loud to each other.
When everyone has finished acting out (reading aloud) the Spanish example, the Spanish example should be removed from the smartboard.
In the same groupings, students now should try to reenact the conversation following the English dialogue.
At the end of the week put the Spanish example on the smartboard. The Spanish enactment (mp3) can be played while the students read along.
Taking it further:
Challenge students to continue the dialogue each day as they practice speaking.
Have students write a continuation of the dialogue or create a story around it.
Students can write a 5 question quiz based on the dialogue.
Tell students to draw a storyboard based on the dialogue and describe it to the class using Spanish.
Allow students to create a video based on the dialogue.
