THEME: Families and Communities
CONTEXT: Social Networks
CONNECTIONS: Science and Technology
This set of resources is something I started to develop last year. I initially found the article "Qué hacer para cuidar las relaciones personales" and built questions using the Interpretive Reading Guide for my students in Spanish four. One of the things that we are supposed to be working on and contributing to as a district/school is ACT style questions to help prepare our students for the ACT Aspire and ACT tests that they take in Wisconsin, but I also wanted to prepare them for AP style questions for when they move on to AP Spanish Language and Culture next year. So I wanted to write questions that were somewhat similar to each. I looked at the ACT Science questions to try to generate similar questions in Spanish (typically graph analysis), which I did for the graph entitled, "Cómo influye la tecnología en las relaciones interpersonales". I linked both of these resources with an infographic, "La comunicación en la era digital. El impacto de las 'redes sociales'."
These three sources are related in their discussion of interpersonal relationships, but they approach them from different perspectives. I used all three of them together as an interpretive summative at the end of our unit on "Love and Interpersonal Relationships," but each resource could also stand alone.
