An end-of-course project to create a capstone where students can show their best understanding of a wide variety of verb tenses, vocabulary, and grammar structures. Students imagine that a movie is being made of their lives and choose 15 songs that represent their life. They write a paragraph about each one and translate a line of lyrics in Spanish. They create a PPT and share with you and with a small group of classmates.
I recommend this for Spanish 4 or 5, but some TPT teachers have used it for Spanish 2 or 3 as well - as long as your students have a grasp of preterite and imperfect, it should be do-able. This is a great way to fill the last 2-3 weeks of school when students have a hard time focusing. Writing about their own life is always a good lure. :)
This file includes an instruction sheet, work day guides, drafting pages, a sample, and a rubric. It also incorporates peer edits, reading, writing, and speaking. I also included PDF and DOC copies so you can adjust the requirements, point totals, or vocabulary to meet your students' needs.
If you are teaching Spanish 4, this product is also available as part of my Spanish 4 Mega-Bundle
If you like this idea – ready-to-go-projects that try to incorporate reading, writing, listening and speaking in the target language – this is also available as part of my Spanish Project Bundle
