Due to the ever-shortening average attention spans of our students and society in general, many teachers believe that video lessons should be at most 3 to 5 minutes and should be entertaining. We disagree! We think that students should actively practice watching longer video lectures that are informative and engaging, but not necessarily entertaining. What do you think? Why? The browser-based practice apps are appropriate for all ages, as young as first grade! However, the video lessons themselves are appropriate for older students, generally junior high and above. Assigning them as homework saves precious class time. With the available PowerPoints and posters, the method is easily presented to younger students. Also note that the videos do not focus on consonants, and you likely will have already covered the basic sounds of the Spanish alphabet. Do you think these pronunciation reference posters could benefit your students? Why or why not?
