Word clouds to preview Superburguesas

Click here to see all of the free resources I offer to teach my novel

For those of you who are teaching with my TPRS novel, Superburguesas, I have created a set of word clouds to preview each chapter of the book.

Before students read the chapter I like to preview the words, ask them to imagine what may happen in the chapter and use the opportunity to get extra repetitions of words that may not be very high-frequency, but are certainly crucial for reading each chapter.

One thought on “Word clouds to preview Superburguesas

  1. Hi Mike, thanks for these resources. I will be reading Superburguesas during the second term (January-March) with my classes, so I’m super grateful every time you publish resources for the novel.
    I tried a word cloud activity yesterday as a pre-reading for a short story. First, I did the cognate challenge. The students loved it, in particular those with ASD. I asked them to count how many they could find, and even if they were beginners they could say “tengo 8”. I copied the the names of the students and the number of cognates on the board with many repetitions of “tiene/tienen” + rejoinders of amazement. All very quick. Then I asked the group with less cognates to give one, and I moved up to the groups that found more cognates. In few minutes, we had a comprehensive list of cognates that weren’t unfamiliar any more. After that, I asked them to read again the words of the cloud, and I asked “¿Quién?”, then “¿Dónde?”, then “¿Qué va a ocurrir?, using “es posible” and “a lo mejor”. The they got to the reading, they were much more confident.
    Such a great idea, these word clouds. Thank you!
