Standard 1.3: Students present information, concepts, and ideas to an audience of listeners or readers on a variety of topics.

Objectives:

The students will use PowerPoint to present a Spanish folktale or myth that is centered on a Spanish country or culture.

Introduction

Imagine this; You are an archeologist professor that specializes in South America and Spain!  You remember that you have studied some Spanish legends and myths in some of you lectures.  Now, with the help of your teacher’s assistant, and using the information that you have learned, it is time for some research!  With this research you will be able to pick at least one Spanish legend or myth and be able to tell the story and be able to answer questions that your students have about your topic choice.  Remember that your topic must be located in a Spanish speaking country in South America!


The Task

After your class is done, your students should be able to understand and retain simple things about your lecture.  To help them with their understanding, please make a Power Point that contains a detailed summary or a study guide that the students can see and copy down into their notebooks.
The Process

To accomplish your task follow these steps:

  • First you will be broken up into pairs of twos.
  • Pick one student to be the professor, and one to be the teacher’s assistant.
  • The professor will do a fair majority of the talking while the assistant will work on the PowerPoint.  If the professor wishes to take a break from talking the assistant may take over the lecture.
  • Using the websites listed below, pick a myth or a legend and begin your research.
