'De Vacaciones' - Capitulo 8A Note: as of today - April 7 - the due date for the brochure (in Spanish) is the first day you have Spanish next week. Please follow the directions on the 'rough draft worksheet' for how to lay out your brochure. - Sra. Bragg
1.) To start your investigation, determine what Spanish speaking country you want to visit. Click on the list here to see the
21 countries that have Spanish as their official language.
2.) Once you have chosen your country use the research sheet to write down your information in English.
3.) Once you have completed your research, use the rough draft sheet to translate the information you have from your
research sheet into Spanish. DO NOT use a translator. The goal is to see how much you can write in Spanish with the
words you know. If you do not know a word, see if you can see it in a different way using the words you do know.
For example: to say that 'Denver is on the planes' and you do not know how to say 'plains', say 'no esta en las montanas'.
4.) When you have finished writing your rough draft in Spanish, make sure your teacher helps you edit. Then, using the
last page on the rough draft worksheet, lay out your information in a tri-fold brochure template (on Publisher, Pages,
Google Docs or Word). The entire brochure should be in Spanish.
5) Print your brochure in color. (If you do not have a color printer, use the library printer.)
