I could probably post tens, if not hundreds, of tweets from Legonium / @tutubuslatinus, but I happened upon these tonight and their use of visual plus Latin made them worthwhile (again, pure happenstance that I, well, happened upon this particular one).
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.)
