Here are some videos of StoryAsking (part 1 and 2). This is Camina y Corre, SOMOS 1, Unit 2. I am working on videos of PQA and our collaborative mural, but one thing at a time!
For more resources about story asking, including what it is, how to do it, and tips to make it go smoothly, take a look at this episode of SOMOS Summer Fun Club and these resources.
I *did not* take the time to subtitle these in English, sorry folks. I just would not have the time to do this until...summer, and then I would forget. Please accept my apologies to folks who are not Spanish speakers, and take a look at some of my other videos for subtitled versions.
IMPORTANT: These students are NOT novice level students. They have had one solid year of comprehension based teaching with a focus on communicative embedded input. (They are CI taught.) This group is Spanish 1 Honors, and were assessed at the end of last year to go into standard or honors tracks. I don't yet have too many videos of me teaching novices because my only novice class is fifth grade, and I do not have video release forms for them. Sorry!
What you will not see: TONS of classic "circling" questions.
What you will probably see: lots of comprehension checks, brain bursts (quick brain breaks), some routines and procedures, and a lot of language. And one class clown.
Want to get better at asking stories? Martina Bex and I collaborated on this resource to help. Watch this video and use one of the organizers referenced in the post. This is a great way to start training yourself!
