This interactive slideshow demonstrates how to have proper agreement using spanish.  The majority teaches gender and numbers.  Gender is always a tricky concept since this does not exist in the English language. Students can choose what section they want to do first but they need to complete both sections.  I like how the slideshow had pop up boxes for review/help.

After answering each question, there is instant feedback for the student.  Also, you have to try again when the answer is incorrect or you are brought back to the material for review.  The entire slideshow is interactive.  Students answer questions along the way and complete a quiz at the end.  These questions help keep the learner engaged till the end.

The colors are bright, interesting, and contrasting with each other.  The layout is easy to understand and navigate through.  Overall, great resource.

suggestions for improving...

add voice prompts.  Maybe read all the questions and answers for students that have trouble reading.  Also, hearing the words can teach proper pronunciation for a spanish learner.

Technical Remarks:

I had trouble playing it because I didn't have Powerpoint, it played through keynote. The links didn't work in the right order and I could just click through all the slides.  In the correct program this looks like a great teaching tool.  Again, with out having the correct program, it was difficult to complete the quiz properly.

Hi Allyson,

I was really impressed with your adjective/number/gender agreement exercise.  This topic is important to new Spanish speakers as we don't use gender in English and we Spanish instructors usually need to anticipate some confusion there.  Also, this lesson is important for building solid foundation skills of Spanish grammar.  I am looking forward to using it as a portion of a future Webquest on the same topic, as an exercise within a CMS, or just as a classroom activity.

I liked the fact that students could choose to get instruction and then practice the topic of their choice right away. (Number or gender.)  The instruction was short, simple, and to the point with good examples (and those pesky exceptions).  The quizzing feature was friendly, and allowed for immediate and pressure-free practice.  The quizzing also allowed for instant feedback between user and content.

Some ideas for the future include:

- Perhaps incorporation of even more UDL principles by adding sound (your voice?).

- Addition of more examples, and inclusion of common exceptions.

- Addition of fill-in-the-blank quizzing where students have to type answers and practice forming the appropriate endings.

- Culminating instruction and activity which incorporates examples with both number and gender.  Putting it all together!  :-)

One more thing I noticed which was very minor: When a user finishes the quiz of one area (either gender or number) I don't think the quiz gives then a hotbutton with the option of going right to the other subject.  It might be more clear to add a button with this option instead of a home button.

I really liked the format and layout and believe it would be transferrable to other Spanish language subjects as well.  Nice job and thanks for sharing!

Technical Remarks:

Simple and easy to navigate.  Students can jump right in and walk through the content.

Time spent reviewing site: 15 minutes, the activity is not very long, but certainly worth the time!
