Lesson Plan for Henrico 21 Awards Teacher Name: Theresa Llewellyn Lesson Title: The subjunctive with adverbial clauses Target Grade/Subject: Spanish 4Tenth and eleventh grade Length: One hour This lesson is designed to allow the achievement of 21st Century skills. The design of the plan requires the students to work collaboratively, to apply critical thinking based the study done beforehand, and to create something new, the graphic organizer. The fact that the students are given a great deal of material which they have to organize means they have to analyze the material and then design a way to share the information. The collaboration requires that they listen carefully to other students and then analyze what it said about the material. All in all, many 21st Century skills are utilizes and learned in the assignment. Technology Use Tools and Resources: For homework, the students were given two websites from which to study. http://www.bowdoin.edu/~eyepes/newgr/subj5.htm http://www.spanish-kit.net/grammar/334.html One of the students found another site she found useful: http://doncarlos123.tripod.com/subjinadverbclauses.html Evaluation Procedure Essential questions or objectives: The students will understand the concept of the subjunctive in adverbial clauses The students will create a graphic organizer of the uses of the subjunctive in adverbial clauses. Assessment of objectives: The students will create a graphic organizer to demonstrate the concept of the subjunctive in adverbial clauses. I drew two graphic organizers of the subjunctive in noun clauses and adjectival clauses. Lesson Development Process/Tasks: As homework the students were given two websites to study. Based on this, as a warm up for this lesson, the students were given a flipchart using adverbial conjunctions in which it was necessary to identify whether the conjunction requires the subjunctive all the time or is the use of the subjunctive situational. This was done so that the students would become more familiar with these pronouns. To begin the lesson, I reviewed the previously learned subjunctive in noun clauses and adjective clauses, and drew organizers on the board. I did this to remind the students of the subjunctive they already know, and to place the new material in sequence. Then the class was reminded of the sites given them for homework The students were asked to form groups of four, to work together to distill the information from the websites to create a graphic organizer of the uses of the subjunctive in adverbial clauses. This type of activity requires the students to think critically as they analyze the information presented on the websites. It also requires them to solve the problem of organizing the information succinctly, and then on how to present the information in a way that shows the relationships between its parts. This activity is completely student centered as the role of the teacher is purely that of a facilitator in giving them the appropriate information and then allowing the student to do the thinking. Below are samples of the graphic organizers the students created.
