Each page must have at least 4 sentences. All text must be in Spanish. You may not use a translator. Using a translator will be considered cheating and may result in a failure for part or the entire project. Each page shall contain a personal photograph of you as a child. For a PowerPoint transitions, animations and clip art or for Scrapbooks drawings and stickers and professional binding should be used to enhance the presentation.The text of the book or PowerPoint will make use of the past tense: the preterite and the imperfect. The imperfect tense should be used to describe and the preterite may be used for specific actions that occurred only once. Several days of class time will be given to work on this project including some computer days. There will be frequent check-ins to make sure students are keeping up with the work load. PowerPoint presentations should be turned in to the teacher’s Inbox on the shared server or by CD, while scrapbooks may be turned in directly to the teacher. It will be presented orally to the class. The oral presentation, which is a separate communication grade, will be over only 5 slides. It will be presented after the due date of the project as to receive feedback.
