This assignment is one that I created and use at the beginning of the year in AP Spanish Language & Culture. Students are required to bring in an artifact that represents their summer, and to speak about their summer vacation for 1.5-2 minutes.
The assignment and requirements are fully explained, and a rubric for grading the assignment is included, as well. Both the instructions and rubric are included in ENGLISH & SPANISH.
The rubric is a simplified version of the rubric that is used on the speaking portion of the AP Spanish exam. I was an AP Spanish grader this past summer, and spent a week grading speaking assessments, so I feel comfortable saying that this rubric is appropriate for the task.
This assignment is adaptable, and could be used as low as Spanish 3 and 4, in addition to AP Spanish.
The file is a Word document, and is editable so that you could change it to fit your needs / change it to use at a time of year other than the start of year, etc.
Please let me know if I can help you edit this assignment to better meet your needs in the classroom. As always, I sincerely appreciate positive feedback, or the opportunity to answer questions or make corrections for you before you leave me feedback!
