Las chicas no juegan lesson plans

ENGLISH:

Maria is a girl that plays volleyball, but she wants to play football. Maria talks with her mom and says, “Mom, I want to play football.” Her mom tells her, “What? Never! Ridiculous! You’re a girl. Girls don’t play football. Play volleyball!” Maria is sad because she wants to play football so much. She goes to the bathroom at her house and cries.

Later, Maria goes to a football practice at her school. Maria talks with the coach and says, “I want to play football.” The coach says, “What? Never! Ridiculous! You’re a girl. Girls don’t play football. Play volleyball!” Maria is sad because she wants to play football so much. She goes to the bathroom at the school and cries.

Finally, Mary dresses up like a boy. She puts on pants and a big shirt. She goes to the NFL and speaks with Tom Coughlin, the coach of the Giants. She says to him, “Mr. Coughlin, I want to play football.” Mr. Coughlin asks her, “Do you play football well?” Maria responds, “Yes! I play very well.” Tom Coughlin responds, “Okay. Play football!” Now, Maria plays football for the best football team, the Giants.

(OR: A lovely twist: The person asks the dad, and he says “Yes”. The mom and dad talk. The mom says, “She is a girl and girls don’t play football”. The Dad responds, “Yes, she is a girl. But she is a masculine girl. She abuses animals and has big muscles”. The mom asks Felicia, “Are you masculine?” And Felicia says, “Yes, I am masculine”. Felicia goes and talks to a football coach, and he says “You’re a girl!” and she says, “yes, I am a girl but I am a masculine girl. Watch!” and she attacks the mascot.The coach says, “Yes, you are a masculine girl! You are very talented. You can play football for the Chickens!”)

  1. I used your script last week to introduce the different forms of “jugar,” and I have to say it was a great success! I’ve only ever done story-telling in my class a couple of times, and one of my students even asked, “So you’re teaching the lesson today through a story? That’s cool!” 😀

    It’s something I’ve been wanting to do for a while — taking in TPRS strategies and incorporating them into my curriculum. I’ll be visiting your site often! Thanks for sharing. 🙂

  2. There are quite a few videos used in these plans; I’m sorry to not be more helpful but could you please let me know to which handout specifically you are referring? Then I can direct you to the video. All videos are links that are included in the plans; for copyright reasons I cannot include the videos themselves in the file download 🙂
