Virginia State Foreign Language Standards of Learning for Level 5:
S2: Students will understand and interpret spoken and written language on a variety of topics.
Students read an article on one of the trade groups (e.g. NAFTA, CAFTA, MERCOSUR, and UE). They must identify how that group has used and/or developed use of technology to impact globalization.
Students have “comment” sheets that they must move around the room to “paste/post” on each other’s Facebook pages. The creators of each “Facebook page” must respond to all comments “posted” on their profile.
Students create a Facebook profile “page”/poster for their group which they display in the classroom. They must include a description of their group and what technologies they have developed/use.
