Writing prompt in Spanish requires students to brainstorm, use their personal experiences and research the internet, Finally, students write a essay in Spanish using at least three verb tenses to compare and contrast two countries. The handout is a guide with numerous examples to help students get started.
For grading students compositions I use a rubric found online:
7.2.12.C.3 Use language creatively in writing for a variety of purposes.
7.4.12.A.5 Demonstrate comprehension of conversations and written information on a variety of topics.
7.4.12.C.3 Use language creatively to respond in writing to a variety of oral or visual prompts.
7.2.12.A.2 Demonstrate comprehension of spoken and written language as expressed by speakers of the target language in formal and informal settings through appropriate responses.
