Spanish IV has spent almost 5 weeks in this unit. This week, in addition to the activities for #SOS Venezuela, students have been working on their PBT (performance based task). The task was to choose one of the five songs that we studied in detail and “reinterpret” it. They were free to use any visual means to do this. Many of them chose Powerpoints and PhotoStories because that is what they are most familiar with, but several branched out into different territories. The actual presentations of the projects will be tomorrow and I will be posting several examples of them, but one was submitted today, and it just blew me away.
These two young men chose to interpret the Juanes song, No creo en el jamás, using iMovie. While the parameters of the assignment are listed below this post, briefly they were:
- show me your understanding of the lyrics of this song, in terms of goals, dreams, obstacles, using a visual format
- do NOT put the actual lyrics in your presentation, instead use our active vocabulary to create your own statements
Here is the link to their presentation. I would love to hear your feedback (please ignore the error with the verb encontrar in their presentation…grammar is not the focus), and as I said, I will update this post this weekend.
Here are a few more of their projects. The music probably won’t play in them because of the formatting, but you will get the idea (hopefully). I wish I could share the Powtoon and the Scratch videos that were made, but they are user/password protected. And, as always, gentle with the grammar errors….for me, the content is more important!
