Fundamental Understandings (help)

When the students are done with this unit, they will be able to correctly identify and use direct and indirect object pronouns in Spanish sentences. Students will be able to identify a direct object, choose the correct replacement pronoun, and appropriatly replace the direct object with a pronoun. Students will also be able to identify indirect objects, choose the correct pronoun, and appropriatly place the indirect object pronoun in the sentence. The students will also be able to combine the two types of pronouns in a sentence together. Finally, the students will have to identify many other types of parts of speech in order to properly place the pronouns.

Relevance (help)

Understanding parts of speech is important in other subject areas, as well, such as English. In order to replace an object with a pronoun, we must be able to identify what is to be replaced in any language and figure out what to replace it with and where.

Assessment (help)

In addition to the standard testing methods, there will also be a cooperative learning activity that will demonstrate that the students have acquired the information. Students will also be able to go to a tutorial website to verify that they have understood the concecpts presented. Worksheets will be used that will address the use of direct and indirect object pronouns individually and together.

Components (help)

The first lesson will consist of identifying a direct object, subjects,and different types of verbs in a given sentence. The students will then identify a replacement pronoun and learn the rules of placement for that pronoun to rewrite the sentence. In the second lesson, the students will be identifying the same parts of speech with the exception of the pronoun. In this lesson, students will have to identify the indirect object in the sentence. They will then learn the indirect object pronouns and apply the rules of placement ot rewrite those snetences. In the final lesson, students will learn to incorporate the two types of pronouns together. The students will learn the order in which the pronouns are placed and changes that occur when certain pronouns come together.
