Integrated Performance Assessments (IPAs) can be used to help heritage speakers assess their performance levels as well as other language learners, but their prior immersion in the language means they need something more challenging than their novice classmates.
This IPA focuses on personal development and discovering your purpose in life--perfect for Genius Hour reflection! Students demonstrate understanding of the motivational YouTuber's "nueve porqués" and discuss how they apply to their own lives before scripting their own inspirational YouTube video.
This could also work with upper level classes like Spanish IV and V or AP Spanish!
