Teaching Tips

Positives

  • There is a link to this video in English in the description, with captions for students that may need assistance while learning a new language. 
  • This video highlights the importance of healthy farming techniques for ecological and climate benefits. 

Additional Prerequisites

  • Students should be proficient in the Spanish language to watch the Spanish version, or should be paired with a more proficient peer to view the video. 
  • Students should be well versed in certain science vocabulary terms such as ecology, climate change, and biodiversity. 

Differentiation

  • Students can complete a graphic organizer or play a roll and chat game (students roll a die and, depending on the number on the die, answer a question about the video) to demonstrate their understanding of the video.
  • For world languages classes, students could have discussions about the video in pairs or answer written questions about the video in Spanish.
  • Other resources about regenerative agriculture include Climate Solutions 101: Reducing Sources and How Regenerative Farming Can Help Combat the Climate Crisis.
