Classroom Ideas

A class could use the report as an introduction to a cultural topic. Initially, a class could note down all the vocabulary associated with the images, (‘ruinos’, ‘fuentes’, ‘palacios’, ‘playas’, ‘pueblos’, ‘casas blancas’, ‘calles estrechos’, ‘mar’, ‘desierto’, ‘música’, ‘montañas’). From Manuel's account, a class could note down which character qualities he perceives to personify the people of Andalucía. The class could then research further the characteristics of the Andalucian people as part of their study of a region of Spain.
