Columbus Day

This is a presentation which, along with a discussion, will teach the students the history of Columbus Day and encourage them to think critically about the “Discovery” of America.

Famous US Buildings

A really quick slideshow presentation about a few iconic American buildings

Ideas to extend the lesson:

  • Explain the history behind each building
  • Have students choose one building (in partners or small groups) to research and do a short presentation for the rest of the class. In English, of course.
  • Talk about similarly iconic buildings in Spain or worldwide.

American Sports

A video-heavy (it is sports, after all) presentation of some common American sports (football, NASCAR, lacrosse, baseball) with explanations of the rules and the importance of these sports to American culture. It also has an explanation of college sports (since that isn’t really a popular thing in Spain) and what being a college athlete is like. This presentation has personal pictures as I also use it to explain my experiences as a baseball fan and a former college athlete.
