In this short project, students will incorporate literacy skills to brainstorm, create a rough draft, and write final draft components for their project. Students must also correctly conjugate the verb LLEVAR and use correct Spanish sentence structures (noun-adjective order and agreement).
Students will also explore their visual arts abilities as they draw themselves wearing various outfits in different seasons. Technology and realia-based options are also available for those students who are not artistically inclined.
This is a wonderful activity to do before a unit or chapter test as a formative assessment of students' writing abilites and grammar/vocabulary knowledge.
You could also expand upon it and have students include weather phrases or how much the clothing costs for enrichment or review.
Meets ACTFL National Standards for Foreign Language Learning:
Standard 1.3: Students present information, concepts, and ideas to an audience of listeners or readers on a variety of topics.
Standard 4.1: Students demonstrate understanding of the nature of language through comparisons of the language studied and their own. (The scoring sheet included has similarities to the "6 Trait" model and concepts, which is widely taught in schools. Coupled with the previously mentioned steps of brainstorming, rough draft, and final draft, students will experience how the writing process in Spanish is the same as the writing process in English.)
