The book 'Piratas' written by Carol Gaab and Mira Canion is an awesome way to help students gain fluency.
After we finished reading the book together I am having my students demonstrate their understanding of the book. I have them doing this in ENGLISH so I know they aren't just copying Spanish phrases from the book, and truly demonstrating their understanding.
Students were permitted to demonstrate their understanding through writing/making either of the following: movie, rap, song, poem, skit, comic book, children's book, summary, characters perspective, alternative ending.
This is a two part project: Written and Presentational worth 120 points.
Included you will find:
1. Introduction page with objective, task and choice summaries
2. Rubric for 'Alternative Ending'
3. Rubric for 'Comic / children's book'
4. Rubric for 'Song / Rap'
5. Rubric for 'Poem'
6. Rubric for 'Skit'
7. Rubric for 'Writing from one characters perspective'
8. Rubric for 'Movie'
