This is a perfect project to give students in Spanish 1 for the first week of class. I always find that there are a lot of logistics to deal with during the fist few days and this project can be picked up and left easily. You can grade it or not. The rubric I use is there in the slide show and you can customize it to your needs. It's both a cultural and linguistic project. Students who have never done Spanish before or know little will make their own presentation based on the example you show them but concentrating on their own interests by looking up Hispanic places and people they like. You get to know them better and they get to use a few key words relating to their favorite things to do and sometimes find out exciting stuff about their favorite singer, athlete, food or vacation spot. I've done it for a few years and my students love it.
