By now, you should have your spring semester final project complete. If you don't have it done, you can use today in class to work on it. HOWEVER, the following activities are still due when we get back to class on Monday!
You're going to set up a couple of important study resources for yourself in preparation for our final exam. The final will cover UNITS 5, 6 AND 7 (see below or study guides in your Drive). TODAY, you will: -- Create your own Quizlet list of 25+ vocab words you need the most work on (you'll need a Quizlet account ... sign up at quizlet.com) -- Create your own final exam study guide by copying and pasting sections from our Unit 5/6/7 study guides that you need the most work on into a Google Document. Copy at least three vocab sections you need work the most on and at least two grammar sections you need the most work on. >>>>>IMPORTANT: When done with the document, move it into the assignment folder with your name on it (using the folder button at the top or by dragging/dropping in Drive).
This will be for a grade. You will get credit for completing these two activities.
WHEN YOU'RE DONE, find the share link (see screenshot below) and copy/paste it into the "turn in links here" file below. Then copy/paste the link (using blue share button) from your Google Document into the "turn in links here" file below. >>>TURN IN LINKS HERE<<<

ASSIGNMENT FOR WEDNESDAY, 4/30: Read chapter 8 (p. 45-50). That's six pages, which is more than we usually do, but take your time, look up words you need the most to understand, and help each other out (feel free to ask for help from people sitting near you ... but work quietly!). Answer questions in this form (click here).
March 12: In Google Drawings, create a drawing like this. Draw two lines to divide it into four sections. In each section, include a picture, a sentence with a direct and indirect object -- but don't change them into the little pronouns yet! -- and a sentence with the DO and the IO changed to pronouns. Finish them by class time tomorrow and Mr. Miller will show you how to turn them in.
"As a child" audio assignment: Record a 60-second or more phone call about your childhood. Use the imperfect and some of your childhood experiences vocabulary. Write out what you want to say (check it with Mr. Miller for accuracy!) and then call ...
When you're done with your recording, say your name at the end and hang up! DUE BEFORE CLASS FRIDAY 1/31!
This week, we will be writing and producing children’s books in Spanish. You will work with a partner or work by yourself this week to complete everything. The books should follow a plot, have characters and be illustrated. The books should be at least 13 pages long (not including a cover) and an illustration. Each page should have at least 20 words in Spanish. These books will be created in Google Presentations and will be embedded into a website so others can read them afterward. The Spanish should be basic, clear and understandable, and if you use words that everyone won’t know (don’t use too many!), define them at the bottom of the page.
Your book should be written in the preterite tense. You should also use at least eight words from our vocabulary sections. Underline these words so they’re easily seen.
RUBRIC 60 points: Content (story is understandable, has flow, logical; images clear and illustrate the story; correct number of pages and words in each section) 60 points: Accurate Spanish (uses preterite tense and verbs are changed accurately; vocabulary usage is good/appropriate; sentences formation is good) 30 points: Presentation (overall look of book, neatness, general appearance) SCHEDULE MONDAY: Decide on the plot of the story, the characters and what the scene will look like and write at least the first page. TUESDAY: Add at least three pages to your story (four total). WEDNESDAY: Add at least three pages to your story (seven total). THURSDAY: Add at least three pages to your story (10 total). FRIDAY: Add the three final pages to your story (13 total). MONDAY: Finish all 12 pages and the cover. Proofread with a partner. TUESDAY/WEDNESDAY: Activities with each other’s books.
IR (TO GO) IN THE PRETERITE: Yo fui = I went Tú fuiste = You went Él/Ella/Usted fue = He went / She went / You (pol.) went Nosotros fuimos = We went Ellos/Ustedes fueron = They went / You all went
NOTE: Those same verb changes are used for the verb ser (to be) in the preterite, too.
The blog post: In 100 words in English, write about the following: -- Why do you think Celia Cruz go to be so popular? -- What about her that you've learned is most interesting? Describe/give details to your readers. -- Who in today's culture do you think is like her (i.e. flamboyant style, big voice, etc.)? Why? Describe why that person is similar.
The videos: Go to http://amhistory.si.edu, click on "Her Music" and then click "Videos." Watch each of the short video clips to get a feel for Celia's music. You may even hear a song that you've heard before!
