Summary of tasks/Actions:
Activity #1

write flashcards and when they are finish they will work with a partner to practice these
words.

Activity #2
Students will create small groups of 4 to begin working on group food project. This
project will focus on vocabulary production and will require students to use Spanish in
their communication with each other. (This will be a critical and crucial part of the
grading for this project)
The students will create a dialogue of a Restaurant Visit where 3 students will take the
parts of customers and the 4th one, the part of the waiter. The students will receive
instructions and a rubric to follow along as well as constant feedback from the teacher.
They will be given 20 minutes daily to work on this project as a group. The primary
objective is to create a scene where customers enter a restaurant, order some food, ask for
some information related to the food, receive their order, talk among themselves about
some of the food characteristics, ask for the bill, speak of money and then leave. All of
this conversation needs to be in Spanish, so the students will use dictionaries and online
translators to create their scenes. The teacher will correct the Spanish, provide feedback
and then the students will have some time to practice their lines as a group, to get ready
for the class presentation.
