Highlighter Activity

In our language PD today (thanks, Megan and Kara) and saw what could be a cool activity to try. It began with a Spanish Wikipedia page on Lionel Messi and a checklist of information to find in the article: team, position, jersey number, etc. They then showed a Latin example with an updated idea: rather than searching for specific information, use color coded categories to find information:

  • blue = people / names
  • green = location(s)
  • yellow = actions / deeds
  • pink = time / date
  • orange = personality / character / variable (depending on the topic)

I was thinking even that the original checklist activity would be a good activity but I like this even more, though they target different things, the former specific information and comprehension, the latter more recognition. (And some of them are debatable / on the border but for the sake of illustration.)
