This poster project is an excellent way to practice and review the preterite for Students of Spanish 2,3, and 4. Students must come up with a question to ask all students in the class about summer activities,and then chart their responses. Students then synthesize the information, create a poster with an informational graph of the student responses and sentences demonstrating their synthesis. Finally, the students read other students posters, write down information that they find, and synthesize that new information. This project helps students with pretertie practice, but is also a valuable tool for practicing finding key information in texts, and how to support conclusions with textual support. Students truly enjoy this project, and it is a great way to come back from the summer, winter, or spring break. The project includes grading rubrics for each portion of the project.
This is a wide ranging project over two days that provides practice with:
Preterito of yo, tu, el/ella, nosotros ellos/ellas (All forms in written and oral practice)
Asking and responding to questions in the preterite
Creating a graph from written information.
