ESPAÑOL- Señor Crue
EL PROYECTO- Capítulo 2
Your project is to make your
family tree [árbol genealógico], using photos of the members of your family. It should include parents, brothers/sisters,
aunts/uncles, grandparents, cousins, in-laws, nieces/nephews, and of course, yourself.
Then, once you have created
your tree, you must write a minimum five (5) sentence paragraph about each relative, describing each person. [If some
of your relatives are deceased, please see me as to how to write those paragraphs.] The paragraphs are to be placed below the picture of your relative and yourself. Use vocabulary that we have done thus far this year, along with
some of the new vocabulary that we are in the process of working with in class now. You may hand-write it (as long as it is
very legible) or type it on computer and paste the paragraphs onto your project.
Also, be sure to title your project. Remember, do NOT use an apostrophe s [‘s],
since it is not used en español.
The project must
be on poster board or similar material [such as cardboard]. You’ll need to use the 2’ by 3’ boards. Do NOT
hand in a project that is NOT on poster board. It will NOT be accepted!
The grade will be based primarily
on two things:
1) Is the project neatly
done? Is your writing legible? Is your tree attractive or simply thrown together? Is there a clear effort to create a neat
2) In your descriptions, is your use of vocabulary correct?
Are your sentences constructed correctly [example: do your adjectives agree with your subject and verb-such as using a feminine
adjective to describe your aunt, for instance]? Are you using a correct verb? Are there at least five sentences in your paragraph?
The grade will count as a
test grade (100 points) and will be the primary grade of this unit. There will be quizzes on the other topics in our
unit (possession, the verb “tener”, and an occasional “pop” quiz on vocabulary), which will be announced
The due date for your project
is Thursday, February 14 [el Día de San Valentín!!]
