    Other Spanish Verbs that Conjugate Like Gustar

    Overview

    In this blended/flipped activity students will be using the "Connect, Extend & Challenge" thinking prompt along with a discussion thread on our LMS, to make connections between what they have already learned and to identify their new learning after going over other Spanish verbs that conjugate like the verb "gustar".  

    (ACTFL Standards:  Connections - 3.2 & Comparisons - 4.1)

    Verbs that conjugate like "gustar"

    Students have already learned the verb "gustar" - how it conjugates and how to use it with object pronouns.  It this particular lesson, we introduced four other verbs that conjugate and are used like gustar - encantar, interesar, importar & quedar. 

    A day or two after teaching the lesson and after students have had some time to process the content, they will use the thinking prompt, "Connect, Extend & Challenge".  They are going to use this prompt in a discussion thread with our LMS (PowerSchool).

    Students will post their answers to three different questions.  The questions are...

    • Connect - How do the conjugations of these verbs connect to what you already know about the verb gustar?
    • Extend - How has your learning about these new verbs been extended or deepened?
    • Challenge - What challenges or problems have come up since learning these new verbs and conjugations?

    Students will post their answers to the above questions in a discussion thread on our LMS and afterwards they will be required to look at the responses of two classmates and make comments on them.

    You have already learned the verb "gustar" - how it conjugates and how you use it with object pronouns to discuss someone's likes and dislikes.  Now, we have added four other verbs to the mix which also conjugate like gustar - encantar, interesar, importar and quedar.

    So what do you think about gustar and our new verbs?  We are going to use the thinking prompt, "Connect, Extend & Challenge" to help you process your thinking.  Using the discussion thread on our LMS (PowerSchool), I want you to think about the following questions and post your responses (in a 4-6 sentence paragraph).  Answer the questions truthfully but be able to give examples to support your responses.

    • Connect - How do the conjugations of these verbs connect to what you already know about the verb gustar?
    • Extend - How has your learning about these new verbs been extended or deepened?
    • Challenge - What challenges or problems have come up since learning these new verbs and conjugations?

    Once you have posted your answers to the questions, please look at your classmates responses to the same questions and pick two students to comment on.  What caught your attention about their responses?  What questions do you still have?  Explain your comments (in a 3-4 sentence response) and submit them on the LMS as well.
