Indirect Object Pronouns: Part Three - 0 views

    • Erin DeBell
  • When a sentence has two verbs, the first verb is conjugated and the second verb remains in the infinitive form.

  • In sentences with two verbs, there are two options regarding the placement of the indirect object pronoun.
  • Here are examples of the indirect object pronoun placed before the conjugated verb:
  • Here are examples of the indirect object pronoun attached directly to the infinitive:
  • Here are the two methods side by side. Neither method is "better" than the other.
  • you must learn to recognize whole groups of words, rather than inspecting each word independently.
  • Your success in being able to recognize these groups is largely dependent upon having learned previous material -- namely verb conjugation.
  • You need to be able to quickly recognize a conjugated verb and an infinitive. You need to automatically recognize "necesito comprar" as "I need to buy."
  • If you can do that, it is just one small step to recognize "te necesito comprar" as "I need to buy for you." From there, the final step is easy: "Te necesito comprar un regalo."

      How quickly are you able to recognize and produce conjugations of key verbs?  Most students are not as confident with conjugation as they should be when they start studying object pronouns.  No wonder it does not come easy!  Want to fix this?   Visit this link to practice conjugating common irregular verbs in the present tense.  If you like it, keep practicing all the other tenses you need to know!

      Scroll down for a really important rule about sentences with MORE THAN ONE VERB!
  • When a sentence has two verbs, the first verb is conjugated and the second verb remains in the infinitive form.

  • prefiere hablar
  • In sentences with two verbs, there are two options regarding the placement of the direct object pronoun.
  • Here are the two methods side by side. Neither method is "better" than the other.
  • These same rules apply for questions and negative statements. ¿Lo debemos comprar? ¿Debemos comprarlo? Should we buy it? Juan no lo necesita lavar. Juan no necesita lavarlo. John doesn't need to wash it.

Direct Object Pronouns - 0 views

    • Erin DeBell
      I identify the Direct Object by finding the "main" verb of the sentence, the action verb.  In the highlighted sentence to the right, what is the main (or only) verb? HIT. To identify the D.O., ask yourself WHO or WHAT is being hit in this sentence? The ball.  Your Direct Object is THE BALL. What is the action verb in the next sentence? READS.  Ask yourself the question... Who or what is getting read? The BOOK.  So the book is your D.O.   It's as easy as that.  If you can identify the main/action verb, you can identify the D.O.
  • Example 1
  • bought
  • ...12 more annotations...
    • Erin DeBell
      What is the action verb in the first sentence? BOUGHT. What got bought in the sentence? FLOWERS. FLOWERS is your D.O.
  • When the pronoun replaces the name of the direct object, use the following pronouns:
  • me (me) te (you-familiar) lo, la (him, her, it, you-formal) nos (us) os (you-all-familiar) los, las (them, you-all-formal)
    • Erin DeBell
      PLACEMENT.  Important.  Where do you put the pronoun once you figure out what it is?
  • Look at how Spanish and English are different. "Lo tengo" and "La tengo" BOTH mean "I have it."
  • direct translation doesn't work so well:
  • La como.
  • This is completely incorrect!
  • Learn to translate groups of words, rather than individual words. The first step is to learn to view two Spanish words as a single phrase.
  • Just as no one has ever learned to ride a bicycle by reading about it, neither will you learn to use direct object pronouns simply by reading this lesson. The key to success, as always, is to practice, practice, practice.
    • Erin DeBell
      Do you feel like you understand Direct Objects?  Are you frustrated?  If so, how much have you practiced?  How many sample exercises have you done? If you read and take notes on a good explanation and then do some exercises, you will feel much more confident with the topic.

      Important!  The Direct Object might be understood but not stated.   Example: "I tell him" would be "Yo le digo" since what I tell him (the direct object) is WORDS or a SECRET or SOMETHING that it is implied but not stated in the sentence.  FYI.

  • Where is the book going?
  • Where is the book going?
  • The indirect object answers the question "To whom?" or "For whom?" the action of the verb is performed
  • María
  • To identify the indirect object use our two guidelines: The IO tells us where the DO is going. The IO answers the question "to whom?" or "for whom" the action of the verb is performed.
    • Erin DeBell
      Important!  You need to understand Direct Objects before Indirect Objects.
    • Erin DeBell
      PLACEMENT.  This section tells you WHERE TO PUT THE Indirect Object.
  • me (me) te (you-familiar) le (him, her, you-formal) nos (us) os (you-all-familiar) les (them, you-all-formal)
    • Erin DeBell
      WHAT ARE THE PRONOUNS?  Some students get confused because the I.O. pronouns look VERY SIMILIAR to the D.O. pronouns.  Notice the I.O. pronouns use LE/LES instead of LO/LA/LOS/LAS.
    • Erin DeBell
      Very helpful!  Does this section make sense?
  • You must learn to think in phrases, not words.
  • me compra he buys me me compran they buy me me compras you buy me
  • The IO pronouns le and les present a special problem because they are ambiguous. That is, they can stand for different things. leto (for) him to (for) herto (for) you-formal lesto (for) them to (for) you-all-formal
  • Since le and les can mean more than one thing, a prepositional phrase is often added to remove the ambiguity

    Awesome tool for generating Bloom's verbs and questions. Gives teacher roles and student roles for each level of Bloom's.
    Elizabeth: Thanks for sharing this. As an Art teacher, I am thrilled to see so many graphic, design, and creative thinking skills being applied. It is a great feeling for us to see others finally understanding what the Arts can do for creative thinking and higher order thinking. It's what Artist's already know. Again great job of sharing.

WordNet - About WordNet - 140 views

    WordNet® is a large lexical database of English, developed under the direction of George A. Miller (Emeritus). Nouns, verbs, adjectives and adverbs are grouped into sets of cognitive synonyms (synsets), each expressing a distinct concept. Synsets are interlinked by means of conceptual-semantic and lexical relations. The resulting network of meaningfully related words and concepts can be navigated with the browser. WordNet is also freely and publicly available for download. WordNet's structure makes it a useful tool for computational linguistics and natural language processing.

HP Blogs - Successful EdTech: First the Verbs, then the Nouns - The HP Blog Hub - 62 views

  • In teaching, our focus needs to be on the verbs, which don't change very much, and NOT on the nouns (i.e. the technologies) which change rapidly and which are only a means. For teachers to fixate on any particular noun as the "best" way (be it books or blogs, for example) is not good for our students, as new and better nouns will shortly emerge and will continue to emerge over the course of their lifetimes. Our teaching should instead focus on the verbs (i.e. skills) students need to master, making it clear to the students (and to the teachers) that there are many tools learners can use to practice and apply them.
    • Kim Ibara
      This is what we need to explain to our teachers, administrators, and boards of education in order to make it clear where our technology initiatives originate.
  • Once we know what verbs you're intending to activate in the classroom, then we can start talking about the technology nouns that will support these activities and experiences
  • While the technology nouns are ever changing and improving, the educational VERBS remain the same. Powerful learning VERBS do not go obsolete, so neither will your instructional plans designed around them.

International Society for Technology in Education - Blog > A Rose is Still a Rose: Translating NETS*S from Abstraction to Action - 107 views

    The NETS help guide technology planning and curriculum development for all grade levels and provide a roadmap for digital age learning, teaching and leadership .. Recently, educators working on a NETS web page for staff and students tackled the challenge by translating the NETS for Students into action verbs .. Here's what they've come up with:"
    Great to see these technology curriculum standards broken down into easy to digest verbs!

Bloom's Taxonomy Blooms Digitally, Andrew Churches - 33 views

  • In the 1950's Benjamin Bloom developed his taxonomy of cognitive objectives, Bloom's Taxonomy. This categorized and ordered thinking skills and objectives. His taxonomy follows the thinking process. You can not understand a concept if you do not first remember it, similarly you can not apply knowledge and concepts if you do not understand them. It is a continuum from Lower Order Thinking Skills (LOTS) to Higher Order Thinking Skills (HOTS). Bloom labels each category with a gerund.
  • In the 1990's, a former student of Bloom, Lorin Anderson, revised Bloom's Taxonomy and published this- Bloom's Revised Taxonomy in 2001.Key to this is the use of verbs rather than nouns for each of the categories and a rearrangement of the sequence within the taxonomy. They are arranged below in increasing order, from low to high.

    When it comes to job hunting, people have no shortage of concerns: preparing a compelling resume, providing polished answers to interview questions, and having excellent references, just to name a few. But since the word "Google" became a verb, job seekers have one more thing to worry about: ensuring their online records won't deter hiring managers from making a job offer.
