What's up or What'sApp? AP Spanish Language: La ciencia y la tecnología
Students will submit words that they associate with social media, which will be displayed in Poll Everywhere in real-time as a word cloud. We will use this word cloud to open our discussion of social media's advantages and disadvantages.
2 Direct Instruction
Students will be given an article, a chart, and will listen twice to a segment of a podcast. Students will underline and highlight important information in the article and chart, and will jot down notes on the podcast. After this step, one student as the recorder will use Mindomo (projected) as the other students provide input on what to include in a mind map that explains the advantages and disadvantages of social media.
3 Guided Practice
Students will choose a group, either "Social media is helpful to society" or "Social media is a danger to society" and will work in a collaborative Google Drive document on the outline to a persuasive argument. The teacher will be collaborating with both groups at one time, providing feedback and reshaping arguments.
4 Independent practice
Students will search for photos and video that enhances their arguments. Students will use iMovie to combine their photos and video, while using the voiceover option to record the arguments as audio segments.
Students will watch both videos, giving simple 2x2 feedback (2 things that worked, 2 things that needed improvement) on Socrative. Students will also have a self-feedback form on Socrative.
