A few points of departure for discussion in class today:
(1) Ska de la Tierra (song)
(a) we did not listen first, we just looked at the lyrics and translated/discussed with the audio off. While the song goes fast, this first look at the lyrics is pretty easy. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yyggC2X96To
(b) This matching game is Spanish audio to Spanish text so that students get to hear her voice before actually viewing the video. After matching I chose a student to translate all of the lyrics. We do this several times to acquaint ourselves further with the song.
(c) We watch this version of the video, which has excellent images matching the principal lyrics. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eqMrxAo4hcQ
(2) Video “Man”. A bit disturbing, but really gets to the idea that we should be thoughtful about how we use natural resources. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WfGMYdalClU
Now let´s focus on why we love the natural world:
(3) Los 30 lugares más bonitos del mundo
We sat in quiet awe as we watched this video.
(4) Picture talk of some of my vacation photos (Macchu Picchu, Patagonia, Costa Rica, Norway, Hawaii… all beautiful scenes). Lots of CI here!
