This lesson is meant to expose students to Spanish poetry for the first time. The lesson includes learning new vocabulary, reading comprehension, and analysis. Students will work with a new vocabulary list of 20 words relating to poetry and literature. They will practice these words with sentence writing and a matching activity. Additionally, students will work in groups to read and analyze Pablo Neruda’s “Poema 20” and will participate in a class discussion that includes some critical thinking questions about this poem. Finally, students will work in groups to create and present a Google Slides presentation on a randomly selected short poem to demonstrate their new literary knowledge, critical thinking skills, and Spanish vocabulary. This lesson plan includes all of the necessary materials to teach this lesson and a short overview video explaining how to implement this lesson plan.
