In this particular lesson you will instruct your students to introduce themselves in Spanish using key phrases like yo, soy, yo tengo and a mi me gusta. This lesson should include everything that you would tell your students during a traditional lecture-style class. 
  2. Rename – Save – Exit to Profile
  3. Find your song and “Create an Assignment”, give appropriate directions, etc. 
  4. In the following class, begin the lesson by asking your students if they had any questions while listening to the podcast or if there’s any material they’d like clarified. 
  5. During class hours have the students compose their self-introductions, present them to the rest of the class and record in Soundtrap (share via class or school website and/or social media). This can be done in groups or individually. 
  6. While they work on their project, spend the class walking amongst them and asking if they have questions about the material. This allows you to give your attention to the students who may not have grasped the material as well as others to ensure they understand the new concepts.
Extended Learning
  1. Encourage your students to swap notes that they took while listening to the most recent podcast and tell each other what new vocabulary they learned related to the topic. 
  2. Have a student compose the next flipped lesson for class.
