This is an extensive Spanish 1 project
about Puerto Rico.
This project is divided into 3 main parts: research, essay, and oral presentation.
Students need to write a letter to a friend convincing him/her to visit them in Puerto Rico.
The letter acts as a 4-day travel itinerary
where students outline the following information: where they are going (city/town), which tourist site they are going to, what activity they are going to do there, what they are going to see there, and how they are going to feel there.
The emphasis in this project is on the simple future (ir + a + infinitivo).
Included in this 10 page document are:
1) a thorough project description
that includes requirements for the research, essay and oral presentation (I have my students complete the presentation on Google Drive but any program is great!), a partial model essay (the essay is completed about Spain as to not steal ideas about Puerto Rico for the students), and a comprehensive list of due dates and grade values (obviously can be edited to suit your needs!)
2) a scaffolded note sheet
that walks students through each step of writing the essay as well as provides the “formulas” for each sentence (eg, “ir + a + infinitivo")
3) an idea sheet
that provides students with lists of different cities, tourist sites, cultural activities, sights, and feelings that they can choose from (the ideas are not in order – students must do research to figure out which tourist site is in which city and what you do there, etc.)
4) a detailed peer-editing packet
including models for completion
This entire 10 page document can be edited
to suit the needs of your classroom.
