Cinesa


 
 
http://www.cinesa.es/
 
 
This site has movie trailers in Spanish along with brief descriptions of movies.  This site also provides information as to which theaters around Spain are playing the movie.

 
 
Interpretive: Students watch two to three movie trailers, answer questions about them and compare them based on several categories such as: genre, characters shown, etc.

Interpersonal: Students are assigned to each watch two movie trailers. Afterward, they must pair up with a partner who has watched the same two. At random the teacher will give them one of the two movie trailers and they must spontaneously do a movie review in a similar style to “Ebert & Roeper”. They will give the movie a “voto positivo” or a “voto negativo”.



Presentational: Students could make a movie trailer of a biography about their life. They would include highlights of big events, a cast of characters and important details. Afterward, either that student or another student could write a critique of the movie based on the trailer.

Interactive visit to the Art Museum in Uruguay. Observe paintings up-close, read about the artist’s bio and build your own personal collection of art work.

 
 
Interpretive: Students could answer either specific questions about artists or paintings or could answer more open-ended questions about paintings and artists that allow them to express their own opinions. This could either be in a written or an oral format.

Interpersonal: After students have compiled their own personal collection, they will defend their selections to a classmate and convince him/her of the value of each work.

Presentational:Students are assigned to a specific artist from the museum and they must come to class and discuss their techniques, the topics they prefer to paint and explain why a gallery owner should purchase their works. During the presentation, they will be able to use the website to show the room where the artwork is displayed and/or specific works. More beginning students could select their favorite artist, create a work in that artist's style and explain why that person is their favorite.
