I’m getting reviews ready for study night tomorrow night. Our exams begin next Friday, the 18th, and end Tuesday, the 22nd. We have a 90 minute exam block for each class and a 20 minute study period before each block. It gives me lots of time to have a 4 part exam.
My plans at all levels are attached (although pretty specific to the content we have studied) and although they are different, the idea is pretty much the same… we are going to read, write, speak, and listen.
In all classes, listening will consist of a 3 minute audio clip from native speaker friends that accompany one of our topics from the semester and a commercial selected for their level.
In all classes writing will consist of a narrative and a letter.
In all classes cold reads will include an article and a text related to topics we have studied this semester and selected for student level.
And in both 3 and 4, students will be doing interpersonal conversation via little conversation cards. Students already did a debrief on what we had learned in the unit (as a class) by creating 4 categories for the information and then identifying key facts that they remembered from the study. This review should help them have longer, more detailed conversations during the study period. At 20 minutes, my goal is to have them spend 3 minutes on each of 6 cards. Sample topics: What impact do humans have on the rainforest? (Spanish 3- their conversation with their tour guide was heavy on the negative impact facts) Water and power (Spanish 4- how does the person who controls the water have power?) In Spanish 2 we are doing our interpersonal feature this week (we are doing presentational in 3 and 4) so they will focus on a more presentational type speaking for their exam.Exam Review 1 Spanish 2 2015Exam Review 1 Spanish 3 2015Exam Review 1 Spanish 4 2015
