Transcript of ¿Quién eres?
You have been selected to participate in this semester's bilingual program. At your first online meeting you are asked to provide a presentation about yourself.
Now that you are done with the first part of Spanish I, it is time to demonstrate your ability to write in the target language. As with any writing project, there is a process to follow that will allow you to produce a quality composition: brainstorming (thinking of the ideas/outlining), writing, revising, and polishing.
You will first write a rough draft in which you make zillions of corrections and changes (by yourself and then by a peer-editor). Then you will make corrections and produce a quality final draft to be graded. Take this opportunity to impress. Show the best of which you are capable.
As you begin the composition, write in Spanish.
Do not write in English and then try to translate everything into Spanish. This is why major errors usually occur because it is impossible to translate some words and phrases directly
(example: a student trying to write "I am fifteen years old" and incorrectly writing "soy quince" instead of "tengo quince años").
In conjunction with the composition, you will deliver a speaking performance about yourself using an online tool. The online tool will be specified by the teacher in the Edmodo group.
The main goal of taking a foreign language is communication with others. There will be assigned a date to turn in and present to the class your work. Using any English will result in a loss of points.
Use the material that you use in your composition as the basis for the speech. You may use one notecard while you are recording your speech but with limited prompts (this will force you to know your information and not just read it). Speak in complete sentences.
