Standard Project Rubric:

In any project, here are 5 things I usually expect and evaluate:

Content / Clarity / Creativity / Accuracy / Appearance

("a lot" is better than "a little"... and in appearance, projects should be neat, organized, balanced, legible, attractive, etc.)

El proyecto "Quién soy"


Paso #1:  lluvia de ideas  

(Step #1:  Ideas Brainstorm)

On a sheet of paper, write the words "Yo soy" followed by your nombre hispano near the top middle.  Then, right in the middle of the page, draw your actividad favorita.  Once those two elements are in place, select some adjectives that describe you from the exhaustive list of descripciones on the handout previously distributed in class.  Write them on the paper in a decorative fashion, making sure the spelling (and gender, for some words) is (are) correct.

Paso #2:  desarrollo y limpieza 

(Step #2:  Development & clean-up)

Using the structures studied in class, develop your lluvia de ideas a little more by adding more words and phrases that describe you (in 3rd person, like the book we read, for now... later we'll change it to 1st person -"yo"-; examples:  "Ella sabe jugar básquetbol", "Él canta... como una estrella de pop", "Ella es fantástica cocinando", etc. - you may need to use an English-Spanish dictionary and/or the notes you took in class from our book, Mi papá es genial, in the MSWord document below). 


Select the images that are most unique and eye-catching, and remove some of those that are obvious now that you have phrases to describe what's happening in them.  Ideally, every image you use will include subtitles (words/phrases) that help to explain the idea... the words and/or phrases without subtitles should be either cognates or phrases we've studied in class thus far (see document below).  The ratio of words to images will be approximately 60/40 (more words, though still lots of images - all subtitled in Spanish, of course).


We'll come up with more infinitive verbs (activities you like to do) and other vocabulary you might not have yet in class together, as necessary... and you'll need to know those that apply to yourselves the best.  Here's a description of what to focus on when studying vocabulary in this class... think of it like an exercise class, where there are different levels of activity and calorie burning:


basic:  know what applies to you

intermediate:  know what applies to you and to some other people in the class

advanced:  know it ALL


"Advanced" language learners will feel the burn...and be that much closer to becoming fluent, and also better prepared for Spanish 1 next year!

Paso #3:  más desarrollo y toques finales 

(Step #3:  Development & Final Touches)

Using ALL of the vocabulary and structures studied in class, develop your borrador final (final draft) with the Guía del cartel that includes opportunities for the following:

  • a final, more complete rough draft
  • peer editing of words & phrases
  • purposeful planning through the use of the scoring rubric


¡Diviértanse! :)

Have fun creating the versión final of your "Quién soy" poster!

Before you turn in your "Quien soy" project, be sure it includes the following:


  • your code name!  (what you picked out of the bowl last time we changed seats... either a country or a capital)
  • your class period (next to the code name)
  • colorful images (could be clipart, magazine cut-outs, drawings, pictures, etc. - should be flat, not 3D)
  • words & phrases & maybe even sentences (connect these to those required details listed on the rubric!)
  • ALL of the required details (check the rubric!)
  • creativity! (i.e. not necessarily a gingerbread man shape on your paper... this was just an image to convey that your project should be personalized and all about you!)
