Intro to SER (and more) – Introducción a SER (y más) – Lesson 12


In this video lesson, student PDF, and auto-graded Google forms quiz, your students will be introduced to the verb Ser, specifically to describe people’s identities. Students will have the opportunity to use the vocabulary they learned in previous lessons as they learn about Ser. A short introduction video, in English, sets the stage for your students as they prepare to learn this concept. Then it’s off to the instructional video, which will present Ser as well as a few words that describe some occupations or identities in Spanish. The video offers opportunities for practice and repetition. For access to the videos only, click here.  

Next comes the student pdf, which recaps the content and skills presented and includes a link to the Quizlet set to help students as they memorize the vocabulary and begin to understand how Ser is conjugated. Students further solidify their knowledge by completing a Mastery Track Activity, also included in the pdf. It is important to note that this particular Mastery Track Activity builds upon the one that is presented in lesson 11. Finally, the included google forms quiz will allow the student (and you!) to check their knowledge and get feedback on their progress.
