This lesson plan addresses a real and significant problem that has definite real world uses and performance. There are clear instructional objectives, though the evaluation is a little vague. The method is very extensive and gives the reader many ideas and lessons to utilize to be the most effective teacher. The motivation is very evident with many lessons that are geared to the students’ personal life and interests and what people do in their lives. Then students can share this in Spanish with their classmates.

This lesson does a great job displaying the information in many different formats and medias. The list of regular –ar verbs overcomes any vocabulary barriers and allows the students to express themselves in multiple different ways. A projector and white boards gets everyone involved, while blogging connects them to each other and the world.

Some of the activities seem overwhelming to someone just learning the conjugation endings. For example, instead of expecting them to be able to write a paragraph using the 6 different verb conjugations, have a paragraph prepared for them with the verbs missing and students need to fill in the space with the correct conjugation of the verb. This way all students can be successful with the conjugations. Also some students are more hands on. If you use flash cards of the stem of the verbs and flashcards of the different conjugation endings, students can physically push the correct flashcards together. Overall this is a great lesson that clearly is student centered!
