I have an interview for a MS Spanish position next week. As part of the interview, the committee wants me to teach a 10 minute lesson to them and they will act like my students. It's for Spanish 1. It's a simple plan, but I want them to get a feel for my style and to experience a lesson I would actually teach in the classroom. I'm not even going to attempt to touch technology in 10 minutes. Just let me know if you think the plan works or if there are any suggestions you would make to tweak and tighten it up. My biggest issue or concern is just showing them as much as I can in 10 minutes. Objective: Students will use tener expressions in Spanish Standard: 1. Students will be able to use a language other than English for communication. Procedure: The teacher will begin by reading the objective, in Spanish, to the students: Yo puedo usar expresiones de tener en español. The students will repeat the objective and the teacher will ask/explain what the objective means. The teacher will review the verb tener by asking students what it means (“to have”) and writing out the conjugations in the present tense indicative form. (Yo tengo; tú tienes; él, ella, usted tiene; nosotros tenemos; *vosotros tenéis; ellos, ellas, ustedes tienen) The teacher will explain that the verb tener can also be used with expressions in Spanish. The teacher will use the photo cards to introduce the tener expressions. The teacher will also model the associated gestures with each phrase. Students will repeat the phrases and gestures: Tener calor = to be hot; (fan yourself) Tener frío = to be cold; (shiver) Tener hambre = to be hungry; (hold stomach) Tener sed = to be thirsty; (take a drink) Tener prisa = to be in a hurry; (run in place) Tener suerte = to be lucky; (cross fingers) Tener sueño = to be tired; (yawn) The teacher will then review how to write /say expressions in complete sentences. The students will orally practice. 1. Yo tengo ____________________________. 2. Él o ella tiene ________________________. The teacher will pass out photo cards to each student. The student will take turns modeling the gesture and the students will have to guess which tener expression is being modeled and say it in a complete sentence él o ella tiene ___________. The teacher will ask to confirm and the student will have to respond “sí tengo______” or “no, no tengo______.” Students will complete the exit ticket (assessment) to close the lesson. Assessment: Students will complete a matching activity where they match the photo with the corresponding tener expression. Gracias!
