This is a compilation of 13 composition assignments designed for Spanish 4 or 5 classes. All of the assignments have leading questions to get the students thinking before they write and several have specific tense requirements or require that a certain number of tenses be used. The assignments cover topics like requiring uniforms in schools, mandatory military service, dream jobs and the effects of stress on young people. The topics are designed to get students writing in a variety of tenses including past and present subjunctive. Several of the assignments are grouped so that you can administer an in-class writing assessment while varying the topics handed out in order to encourage honesty. For example, compositions 3A, 3B, 3C and 3D have the same requirements, but different topics and thus could be given during one class as four different versions of the same assignment or could be given on four different occasions.
