Here are the last few lessons from my bullfighting unit before we did our assessment. I wanted students to be able to take everything they’ve learned and put it to use in “the real-world.”
Days 11: Regional Views. Here was the lesson:
– Students used maps from Day 10 while marking certain regions of Spain and their views on bullfighting.
Days 12: PETA and Letters. Here was the lesson:
– Students logged on to PETA’s website, searched “bullfighting” in the search bar, and then answered some questions that I had typed up for specific articles. (FYI: There is a Spanish version of their website)
– One of the articles I directed students to asked students to write to an ambassador protesting bullfighting. I asked students to choose which side they were on (either pro or anti bullfighting) and write their own letter. I allowed students to write these in English.
