At the moment with the U6 group I am revising in preparation for the exams which will soon be upon us. I am taking past paper discursive essays (we follow the EdExcel board) as a prompt for some of the work. As part of a discussion about the value of the Arts in society we have done some work on La Noche de los Museos and an exhibition at the Museo del Prado called “Hoy toca el Prado“. The resources include a lot of translation into Spanish as this is required in the exam. Towards the end of the PowerPoint there is a reading comprehension based on an interview with Miguel Zugaza, the current director of the Prado. While reading comprehension is not part of the exam, the aim is to provide some ideas in order to tackle the homework task which is to respond to the essay title, “En este clima económico el gobierno no debería gastar tanto dinero en las artes. ¿Qué opinas? Razona tus opiniones”.
