Recently when fabulous NC teacher Bethanie Carlson Drew (who has guest-posted on Musicuentos before) tweeted requesting recommendations for a good resource for authentic restaurant reviews, I was happy to share with her my favorite, loogares.com. Don’t be fooled by the footer credit on this activity – that’s all I did. She took my recommendation and came up with an excellent multi-dimensional activity to get students working with this authentic language and writing their own reviews. She’s given me permission to post it here (you can also view on Google Docs) for you to use.
She also shared a couple of photos of work her students produced after the activity, without notes or dictionaries. Powerful stuff! (I apologize for the first one being sideways – in every other program it appears correctly oriented to me.)
