This essay assignment is the culminating in-class assessment after teaching students about Hispanic music. It can be used together or separate from my La música hispana PowerPoint (also available on TPT below). Students will need to have learned about the different genres of Hispanic music and listened to music of those genres in order to complete the essay. I assign this to my level four Spanish students. They are permitted to use their notes, as I use this as a synthesis exercise that will help prepare them for AP Spanish. The students will need a minimum of one class period to finish. The essay is graded on the Fairfax County Upper Level Writing Rubric (available for free online), so there is no rubric attached.
The directions to this assignment appear exactly as I use them in my classroom. You are welcome to adapt them for your classroom.
