Adding to the resources for El Internado...



Many teachers are using El Internado in class, so I finally jumped on the bandwagon and have started showing it in my Cultura y Civilización class. It is something we do on Fridays as a reward for speaking a lot of Spanish during the week. It has been going really well. Students are engaged and they are hearing and reading (subtitles) real Spanish... and they are also having fun! (**Warning** Some scenes might need to be skipped and there are some "romantic situations" and profanity. I recommend a permission slip and probably only for older students.)

As we watch, I pause a lot for explanations and questions. I have created a three post-watching activities (so far). The episodes are long, so we watch 15-20 minutes and then read/answer aloud as a class. The readings are very simple and easy for the students, but all students get something out of it (differentiation!). Watching El Internado is an "easy day" for students, but there is a ton of learning and input happening!

There are lots of resources that other teachers have created (see below for links), but this format of watching a bit and then doing the reading activities aloud together as a class after is working very well for me and my students. Here are the post-watching readings that I have used so far. I created three of them (episodes 2-4 and I am going to start 5 and 6). Thanks to Bethanie Drew for the proofreading and enhancements to these!
Mike PetoDustin WilliamsonKaren Goering, Lindsey Camachothe Reading (MA) Spanish 
department (formerly including Meaghan McSherry), and Allison Wienhold (and others) have created some fantastic resources to use with El Internado. You could keep clicking and go into a maze of El Internado resources! So many creative ideas!

There are also some Kahoots already created. Just search for El Internado, mikepeto, placido or srakjacobs. Students LOVE that game and it is a great way to review.

  1. These are great resources! Do you have a .doc version of the Episodio 01X04 Bethanie's enhanced version? The formatting it a little messed up on the pdf. Thanks and see you at FLAME!

  3. Hola Kara,
    I've been using your amazing resources for Internado this year with much much success in my classes. I appreciate all that you share. I'm am beginning temporada 2 this week and I'm wondering if you have any avbl for the next season?? I see you have an unfinished copy in the google drive- so I'm guessing you haven't gotten that far? Thanks in advance. aeastin@midviewk12.org

  6. Thank you so much for these absolutely fantastic resources! I purchased the season 1 episode 1 post viewing guide from Mike Peto and it is wonderful. I was also wondering if you all created one that you would be willing to share? I am particularly interested in seeing which vocabulary you identified as being essential.

    Saludos,
    Josh

    1. Hi Josh,

      I did not create a viewing guide for episode 1 because I use Mike Peto's guide. Bethanie Drew and I based our guides off of his episode 1 guide :)

      Hope all is well!

  7. Hello! LOVE all the resources and the blog - how do you go through the viewing guide? Do you have the students fill in as you pause and ask questions? Or do you do some sort of "pre-reading" first, so they have a chance to look up words they do not know and ask questions? Thanks in advance :)

    1. Hello! Usually, I explain, very basically, what is going to happen for 5-15 minute segments (depending on level of students). Then we watch. Then we do the viewing guide together. One student reads aloud and the others say the answers. I haven't tried this yet, but Mike Peto has the students read chorally, that way everyone is talking.

      I highly recommend checking out Mike Peto's blog for a very thorough explanation of how he uses and teaches with El Internado and/or Gran Hotel.

  9. Thank you so much for these resources, they are fantastic! I've been making powerpoints where I break up the text of these guides onto slides with screenshots from the show to help review what we have seen. I wanted to get your permission first before I drop them into the Google Drive folder that teachers have been collaborating in for El Internado. I couldn't figure out how to privately message you about it on here though.

    1. Hello Catherine! I would love to see those! Could you share them with me.

      Before you share them in a folder, let me check with Bethanie Drew. Since we don't sell them, I don't think she will mind. But please give us credit for our work. (We recently had an incident in which someone was selling and marketing a product that was HALF our work... with no credit or permission).

      Also, thanks so much for your PayPal transaction :)

    3. Wonderful! How would you like me to share them with you first? Is your email listed somewhere on this blog?
