We recently worked on commands in Spanish 1 in our giving advice unit. One way I grabbed attention is by creating a powerpoint slide with pictures of myself and then creating 2 other versions. I then typed in some “advice” that my “teacher-conscience” would make.
Here’s a version with the Teacher Meme character:
I took a regular picture of myself for the normal picture and picture with a grumpy face and a picture with an innocent looking face. I then used the powerpoint “Shapes” to create a halo and red triangles for horns. Or if you are tech savy, you can insert a transparent picture of thorns. With the speech bubbles (available in the ‘shapes’ options) I made the dialogue with the advice.
For an assignment/assessment, I tasked students with creating their own struggle of conscience between good and evil by using a character and giving commands relevant to that character.
Here are some samples:
If you are interested in the template for the teacher created pictures, I have included this template (with the speech bubbles, halo, and thorns already there, all you have to do is insert 3 pictures of yourself) in this Project available on TeachersPayTeachers.
