This is a great way to get students interested in Spanish OUTSIDE of the classroom! I use this specific homework sheet every 9-weeks, but it can be catered to your homework preferences. Basically, it is a list of assignment options that get students interacting with Hispanic/ Latino culture in some way. The assignments are worth different points, and they must get 100 points by the end of each 9-weeks. Examples of assignments include taking pictures at an authentic Mexican grocery store, videoing yourself talking with a native speaker in Spanish, etc. It is a GREAT way to get students involved outside of the classroom!
This homework page is for lower levels of Spanish, but I also have culture homework pages for Spanish III!
