In this unit students will understand that language, customs, and celebrations shape the identity of a family. Students will also explore how using another language can give them an appreciation of different cultures which will improve social and professional interactions. The unit introduces family and celebration vocabulary for a novice mid level student. Students will also conjugate the verb tener in the present tense and use it in some common expressions and will use possessive adjectives to describe familial relationships. At the end of the unit, students will integrate learning by planning a culturally relevant celebration. They will also create a family tree and use presentational and interpersonal speaking skills. This unit is based on resources from Pearson Auténtico Level 1 Textbook and uses ACTFL Can-Do Statements as a guide.
