Thanks to spanishplans.org’s wonderful resources for Sie7e’s song “Tengo tu love”, my students have had a great time comparing things in Spanish. The combination of the song and the resources made for a lasting mental bond for my students.
I want to try to ride that wave as long as possible, so on Monday we will compare Argentine dating sites! Buscando pareja en la red is the document that I made for the comparisons, which we will also pair-share, then share with the group.
From here, my students will move on to create their own anonymous profile for a dating site (fake, of course). Then we will compare the profiles, choose our favorites, evaluate the comparisons, and reveal who everyone chose!
Eventually we will get around to practicing these same skills interpersonally, along with the “dating lingo” on the Unit Overview document, in the form of speed dating.
I’ll let you know how it goes!
