The performance task for Spanish 1 Unit 1 is to write a letter to a new penpal. The student starts with the date and a greeting, then introduces and describes himself or herself. Then the student asks a few questions about their new friend and closes the letter.
A full rubric will be made available soon. In the last couple of days I have introduced examples of short letters and asked students to write a first attempt using the examples as guides. We will work more with this before the students write the actual letter in class.
