la familia
Students’ age range: 12-14
Topic: Cómo es tu familia?
Description: I started the lesson by having students guess information about my family that were aligned with the lesson objectives (how many people?, how many brothers, how many sisters). I then gave students some information about my family then taught them how to talk about their family in terms of numbers as well as describing each member. Students were then taught how to ask the questions that elicited the responses previously mentioned. Students were also guided in completing their graphic organizer with relevant vocabulary. They were also guided in completing their scripts for their oral presentation.

Hi, It is an interesting topic and students love to talk about their families. I have one suggestions, it is important to apply one strategy of critical thinking and you should apply "Fish Bowl strategy", because it is useful to apply in groups and it promotes communication skills among students, and the same time, they know different point of view about some specific topics in their own context " Family" . Students can learn to say meaningful ideas according to his/her experience. They can say: What do they think about family structure? Nuclear family, extended family and others.

It's great to have students engaged orally especially during the teaching of a foreign language. I do hope pictures were used in the initial engaging process. Good effort

i think that this is a good way to make the students participate in the lesson and they can also identify with the topic. it becomes easier for the student to express him or herself . and the learning of new words will be a lot fun.

The teacher utilized the questioning technique which is a good start for the lesson. The teacher provided the students with information about his/her family which is also a good source of familiarization for the students. The teacher however must not stifle the students critical thinking but providing them with too much information to early in the lesson. The teacher should allow the students to ask their questions about the family and not give them the questions. Ideas are good but the students need freedom to think critically.
