Project Introduction and Overview

This semester, you will be putting together a three step project that will be due at separate times and will be used during finals in replace of an actual exam. In groups of no more than three you will be putting together a website, essay and podcast on a topic in Hispanic history.

You may access a list of viable topics of which you can sign up for on Google classroom which will be visible at 3:12 today. No more than two groups amongst the four sections of Spanish 2 classes may sign up per topic, so pick soon and keep up-to-date on the chosen topics online. If you do not like any of the topics, you may email me with a desired topic of research. Since this is a multi-class project, you may work with others in another period but be aware that there’ll be times you will get to work on it in class, and may not have a partner there to help. On the list that we have compiled of possible projects, there is a list of books which you can find at the various branches of the San Francisco Public Library. You may use these resources and additional resources from the Wallenberg Library, as well as online databases (or Websites) which will be introduced by our librarian. I should NOT see Wikipedia as one of your sources. You may use this as a starting point, but it should not be one of your five sources.


The Essay


Due: November 2

Your essay must be at least 8 pages in length, use correct citing (including a work cited page which does not count in the 8 pages), use quotes (from a book or source), use an interview (does not count as a quote) factually correct, in strict MLA style format. Your essay should not be lifted from any document (online or book). If any part of your essay is copied in any way, you will get a 0 on it.


The Podcast


Due: December 7

Your Podcast will be the same information on your essay. But you must: make sure all group members are heard, a piece of your interview, some interesting sounds, and be at least 15 minutes in length (two of which should be in Spanish).

*Important vocabulary will be different for each topic discussed. Important vocabulary may not be understood by audience, so make sure to define terms in your own words.


The Website


Due: December 7

The website is there to visually enhance your podcast. It should include your podcast, any relevant videos and pictures (must be credited!), graphs/statistics, and it should look nice. See example.


What you'll need to do:

Three Things:

● Essay (worth 35% of overall grade for the project) – see rubric in center column of this page.

● Podcast (worth 35% of overall grade) – see rubric in center column of this page.

● Website (worth 30% of overall grade) – see rubric in center column of this page.

The website will be done on your account. If you do not know how to use this, please see me soon. On the website, you will include an upload to your podcast. Your essay will NOT be on the website. You MUST create a QR scanner code for your website. You may see an example of a website and hear a podcast by scanning the QR code here:
