You are to create a book for children. Here are the requirements:
- It must be in Spanish–that you already know! No translator use allowed. We have many vocabulary words (including the short stories we’ve done, and the book) for you to pull from.
- You are to tell a story in the past, correctly using the past tenses we have worked on (PT-for single action, and IMP for any S.H.E.D.S. reasons). Your story content must be appropriate for young children. No extreme violence. No innuendos.
- Your story cannot be fewer than 10 sentences, and cannot be more than 20, including dialogue. These are to be short stories.
- Your story must be accompanied by colored illustrations.
- ALL STORIES ARE DUE 5 CLASS DAYS BEFORE THE FINAL EXAM–because you need time to share them with the class!
Here’s what I suggest:
- Start now.
- Draft the words of your story using easy vocabulary from our lists. Be sure to describe your character and come to a sensible conclusion. The best idea may be to use a storyboard. Ask for one.
- Write your OWN story.
- Get your story idea/draft approved by me before moving into the art mode.
- Like the passport project, put it together first, then fill it in. Have a cover folded around the pages, then staple it all together.
Stories can be submitted at any time, but MUST be submitted 5 CLASS DAYS before the final exam. This way, I have time to grade them and you have time to present them.
I suggest using white printer paper and folding it in half to make a booklet.
You can then use the document camera to present to the class.
If you prefer, you can make a COPY of your book into a PPT or a video. Even copies are due 5 class days before the final exam.
Either way, I still need the original booklet.
Booklets may be picked up the day of the final exam.
