NATIVE SPEAKER INTERVIEWS ESSAY: DUE DATE IS SEPT. 30.
Once you have completed your interviews and have organized your notes taken,
write a well-organized Spanish essay of no more than 2 typed pages explaining
and comparing the content discussed during the interviews. Essays must be
typed using Times New Roman and 12 font with appropriate margins and rules
discussed in English classes. In the essays use good transitional expressions
to connect your ideas, advanced grammar structures and syntax (namely, a
variety of verb tenses and new vocabulary expressions where applicable), and a
nice comparison and synthesis of content ideas and topics discussed during the
interview process. It is always good to use the subjunctive mood and various
forms of the imperfect vs. the preterite, as this demonstrates a higher level
of thinking in Spanish essays/written comprehension.
Please provide a cover sheet detailing the following information:
--The name(s) of the native speaker(s)
--Country of birth/other places lived
--Contact information…phone, address, e-mail, or place of work
--Specific dates, times, locations of interviews…(a log journal)
--Your Spanish name/English last name, date due, class name and block.
Dictionaries and any other help/references can be used…except no help from
another person. If you have any questions, please contact me by e-mail.
Remember that all work must be your own, and of very good quality. The Honor
Code and Pledge are to be followed.


FOR FUTURE PLANS: BEGIN THINKING ABOUT A SPANISH-SPEAKING COUNTRY (OR
COUNTRIES) THAT YOU WOULD LIKE TO SHOWCASE IN MAY AFTER THE AP EXAMS HAVE
CONCLUDED. YOU MAY WORK IN PAIRS OR INDIVIDUALLY ON THIS PRESENTATION.
I ENCOURAGE YOU TO SELECT YOUR COUNTRIES ANYTIME NOW AS THE SELECTIONS ARE ON
A FIRST-COME/FIRST-SERVED BASIS. THE FOLLOWING RUBRICS WILL GIVE YOU THE
GUIDELINES FOR THE POWER POINT PRESENTATION REQUIREMENTS.

POWER POINT PRESENTATIONS: COUNTRIES OF THE SPANISH-SPEAKING WORLD:

INSTRUCTIONS AND RUBRICS FOR GRADING: (BASED ON 100 POINTS: NOTE THAT THIS
GRADE WILL ACCOUNT FOR ALL OF THE TEST CATEGORY PERCENTAGE FOR THE 4TH NINE-
WEEKS, OR ROUGHLY 50% OF YOUR GRADE FOR MP4!)
1. 10 POINTS: AN ELECTRONIC COPY OF THE POWER POINT E-MAILED TO ME BY 8:30
AM ON MONDAY, MAY 21, 2012. THIS MUST BE THE FINISHED PRO-
DUCT OF YOUR PRESENTATION. ALSO INCLUDE A REFERENCE/SOURCES
PAGE, USING THE PROPER FORMAT TAUGHT IN ENGLISH CLASSES.
2. 5 POINTS: AN ORIGINAL/CREATIVE/COLORFUL INTRODUCTORY PAGE(S)/INTRO-
DUCTION TO THE PRESENTATION.

DUAL. I WANT TO SEE EVIDENCE OF PREPARATION AND KNOWLEDGE

GAGEMENT/INVOLVEMENT/INSTRUCTION DURING THE LEARNING PROCESS.
