Creative Translation for Real-World Contexts: English ↔ Spanish
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC-SA
Rating
0.0 stars

Creative Translation for Real-World Contexts is one of the first translation textbooks designed for Spanish/English speakers at an intermediate-high (B2) level. This book introduces students to the basic ideas of translation while addressing frequent pain points that recur when working bidirectionally. Additionally, a focus is placed on fostering metacognitive skills by encouraging creative translation from real-world environments such as narration, business, advertising, specialized contexts (including inclusive and queer language), and in situations when there are no clear translations available, such as sci-fi and fantasy works. Chapters alternate between Spanish and English as the languages of discussion, thus providing an equitable challenge for native speakers of both languages.

Cultural Differences and Conflicts - Storyboards and Fotonovelas

Middle school is a conflict-ridden stage, particularly for our emerging bilingual students, who are normally known as ELLs. Not only do they have to overcome numerous problems of linguistic and cultural adaptation, but they also have to face challenges such as family or economic instability and moves, often cross-border. Indeed, it is not uncommon to meet Hispanic students: Mexicans, Puerto Ricans, Salvadorans, etc. who travel to their countries of origin, or to the countries of origin of their parents for seasons, sometimes even to stay and live there, despite having been born in the United States and having lived here all their schooling until that moment. It is also quite common to see students who migrate with their families to the United States when they are already 11 or 12 years old and who, as we mentioned, not only have to learn the language, but adapt to a new life, culture and traditions.In this lesson plan we propose to use these personal experiences to introduce basic conversational vocabulary. It is designed for both dual immersion programs and English development classes.

This OER Lesson plan/unit was created by Danielle Fulcher as part of the 2023 World Language OER Summer work and training. Educators worked with NDE staff to create OER Learning Plans and materials. The attached Lesson Plan is designed for 9 - 12 World Language Arts teachers for student learning of Novice-Mid Learners of Spanish. This is a lesson to introduce the concept of culture to novice level Spanish students. Using the analogy of the "cultural iceberg" students take a closer look at what culture is and to which cultures they belong. We go further by taking a look at greetings in their own culture and comparing them to greetings in Spanish-speaking countries. Students are able to define what a typical greeting looks like and what influences how those greeting rituals look on the surface. This resource comes with a  pdf of a slideshow with information and a pdf worksheet for your students to analyze the concept of culture.This Lesson Plan addresses the following NDE World Language Standard(s): NE WL 2.1.b, 2.2.bIt is expected that this Lesson Plan will take students 50 minutes to complete.

SYNOPSIS: In this lesson, students learn the importance of migratory hummingbirds and how to help them face the impacts of climate change.

SCIENTIST NOTES: This lesson teaches students all about hummingbirds. Hummingbirds are important pollinators, and climate change is hurting their habitat. This lesson passed the scientific review process.

Esta lección enseña a los estudiantes todo sobre los colibríes. Los colibríes son polinizadores importantes y el cambio climático está dañando su hábitat. Esta lección pasó el proceso de revisión científica.

POSITIVES:
-This lesson encourages students to look for hummingbirds in their local environment and feel connected to the natural world and their neighboring country, Mexico.
-The lesson exposes students to the diversity of Indigenous peoples in the Americas through Indigenous language names for hummingbirds in Mexico and the stories from three different Indigenous cultures.
-This lesson could connect with a Day of the Dead lesson by beginning with the video of the Aztec legend about the relationship between the cempasúchil flower and the hummingbird.

ADDITIONAL PREREQUISITES:
-The main species in this lesson, the ruby-throated hummingbird, is currently abundant. In fact, climate change may extend the range of this species farther north as the climate becomes hotter. Students have a high probability of encountering this hummingbird in New Jersey and thus appreciating its tenacity and beauty.
-Appreciating the local migratory hummingbird can help students understand the concept of interdependence within communities and across borders.
-Understanding interdependence and fomenting cross-cultural cooperation are important aspects of finding solutions to climate change.
-Other species of hummingbirds, as noted on the poster from CONABIO, are more acutely threatened by climate change. Students can discuss why. For example, the more a hummingbird depends on an endemic species of plant (a plant found only in its region) or a more specific microclimate, the more vulnerable it is to disruption from climate change.
-Teachers can use this resource from Rutgers to further their understanding of the ruby-throated hummingbird.

DIFFERENTIATION:
-Teachers can use all the activities in the lesson or choose activities that are most apt for their class.
-Teachers should preview the videos that tell stories about hummingbirds from the Nasca culture and the Aztec culture. These stories include events that students may find sad or scary. For example, the Aztec story includes the death of a warrior whose soul becomes the hummingbird. Students can talk about how they and the characters feel at different moments.

-The teacher can project the game board and students can play the game as a class instead of in pairs or small groups.
-Students can create personalized lists of vocabulary with expressions from this lesson to practice on a platform like Quizlet.
-Students can create a local guide in Spanish about where to buy sustainable seafood or write an article in Spanish for the school newspaper.
-Advanced classes can begin the lesson by analyzing Pablo Neruda’s poem “Oda al Caldillo de Congrio” instead of describing the photos.
-After completing this lesson, AP Spanish Language and Culture students can record a two-minute cultural comparison using one of these prompts:
-¿Cómo ha afectado el cambio climático la vida de las personas en tu comunidad? ¿Qué hacen para expresar solidaridad los miembros de tu comunidad?
-¿Qué hábitos o actividades se consideran una expresión de los valores en tu comunidad? ¿Qué opinión tienen las personas en tu comunidad con respecto a los avances en la ciencia y la tecnología?
-¿Qué papel juegan las tradiciones de la comida en las familias de tu comunidad? ¿Qué importancia tiene el trabajo en el bienestar de las familias en tu comunidad?
-As a culminating activity for this three-lesson unit, the class can watch this Youth for Sea music video and then create their own version of the video or create graphics to go with the song.
-The class can come up with their own criteria, based on the lesson, for the competition “La Gran Receta de los Océanos.”
