This project is designed to have students research one of 14 included genres of Hispanic Music (you may expand this list). The project is primarily for use in upper level Spanish classes but may be adapted for use in any class focusing on this particular topic. The product includes a list of 14 possible topics, detailed directions, and a rubric. Each presentation should take approximately 7-10 minutes of class time to present. The students typically need about two in-class research periods or a week of out of class time.
My Spanish four classes are small, so I am able to make this an individual project. If you have a larger group, you can add more genres, have multiple students do the same genre, or turn it into a group project. Depending on your class size, this project can take between one and two weeks from start to finish.
The project is worth 22 points because we weigh our grades. You may choose to adjust the points on the rubric to your liking.
