I am very excited about the assessment task that my Spanish Phase 2 are going to complete for their inquiry unit called "passport to the Hispanic world". The students have been set the task of creating a web page for a travel agency which will give information about a Hispanic city or country of their choice, as well as include a tour proposal for tourists. The students have already completed a presentation on a Hispanic country as part of this unit, and they can choose to re-use this information, or they can choose a new country or city of their choice to research. They also already have knowledge of how to create a web page using https://www.wix.com/, but you can see my example here, which I built using https://sites.google.com/.
After the students have written an introductory paragraph about their country or city of choice, they will create their tour using https://tourbuilder.withgoogle.com/. See my example tours below:
As you can see from my examples, the students will need to research places to visit, be able to pin them in a logical order in the tour, and write a description about each location. The grammatical focus for this unit has been the impersonal <<se>> , the use of ser vs. estar vs. hay, vs. tener, and the demonstrative pronouns este, esta, estos and estas. To see the task that has been set to the students, look at the document below. Hopefully some of my students will be happy to share their finished product with us on this site!
And here is the finished product! Please see the links below to a selection of the work created by my students.
