An end-of-unit project to practice preterite vs. imperfect! Students write the synopsis of a movie in the past tense using preterite and imperfect. But they can't use the names of any characters or actors so you can use it as a class guessing game. The students get speaking and listening practice without even realizing it!
My projects 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 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
Pro Tip: Do the Spanish Dictionary Activity to kick this off and help students learn how to use a dictionary or online dictionary to write their best Spanish!.
This product is part of my collection on the distinction between preterite and imperfect in Spanish. There are separate collections for preterite conjugation and imperfect conjugation as well. I aim to keep vocabulary as neutral as possible, and while PDF products are not editable, products sold as ZIP files include editable files so you can add unit-specific vocabulary.
This product is also included in my Preterite Vs Imperfect Bundle.
If you are teaching Spanish 3, this product is also available as part of my Spanish 3 Mega-Bundle
This formal assessment primarily focuses on the ACTFL language interpretive and presentational communication standards.
