My Spanish 4 students are required to complete an in-class writing every other week. This entry is about a person who checks in at a very eerie hotel. The students watch the PowerPoint to see the beginning of the story and then are instructed to begin writing when the elevator door opens and the main character screams. The students write 125 words and are given a 15 minute time limit. They are instructed to write in the past from the first person perspective. This activity can be used for any level of Spanish that is working with the past tenses.
