This assignment works best for students in SPanish II who have reviewed usage of verbs like GUSTAR or for SPanish I students after the have already learned adjectives and basic regular verb conjugation. Students create an original poem about something they love and then present it to the class. Packet contains parameters of assignment, tips for students on composing their thoughts, revision/proofing code list for peer correction or teacher proofing and grading rubric. This lesson works well as a final assessment of GUSTAR or related verbs and students enjoy presenting their works out loud in a Poetry slam. Plan at least two days for creation and proofing, one day for final revision and 1-2 days to present depending on class size.
