Y10 Spanish Citizenship Task

21 10 2010

You must research the phenomenon of the ‘botellón’ in Spain and write an essay in English, giving as much detail and as many statistics as you can.  In your assignment you should aim to answer the following questions:

  • What is a ‘botellón’?
  • Why is it such a problem in Spain?
  • Are the people involved in this activity fulfilling their rights and responsibilities as citizens of a society?
  • What would the young people say to defend what they are doing?  Would the local people agree?  Who would be in the right?
  • What could be done to solve the problem?
  • In your opinion, how does it compare with binge drinking in England?

You can produce your essay using word or powerpoint.  Remember to include pictures, facts and figures and lots of information.

Also remember to check the Citizenship Level Descriptors to see what citizenship level you are working at (see attached document below).

You have now been learning Spanish for 7 weeks and have learnt how to give personal information about yourself and others.  You have also worked in groups to research information on Spain’s history, culture, geography and famous Spanish people.  This Citizenship task is a chance for you to further develop these research skills and demonstrate how you can explore and use different sources of information.

You must download the attached document and complete each section in as much detail as possible in English.  You should also add images.  The task must be completed in your own words, therefore you are not allowed to copy and paste information from websites you use for research.

You have been studying the topic of food and drink this half term.  You must now think beyond the basics and ask yourself the questions, is our attitude to food different to the attitude of French people?  Do they have a more healthy relationship with food?  Do they have more or less obesity problems than us?  Do they eat fast food as much as we do?

The task: 

You must research the answers to the above questions and produce a detailed essay in English (the more detail you give, the better the level will be) which illustrates your findings.  You may include any other resources such as graphs, images and statistics if they are relevant to your essay.

Remember:

You must refer to the Citizenship level descriptors so you know what you must do and include in order to access the highest level.
