You will be recording a video of a simulated conversation with Adriana. First, listen to what Adriana is saying by clicking on the attached link (https://youtu.be/GI0MyCn4gVA). She will ask you questions and also respond to your questions. YOUR PORTION of the conversation is blank. Figure out what is needed to complete the conversation with Adriana. PRACTICE your conversation. PLAY her portion and respond in time so that the conversation flows naturally. When you are ready, RECORD YOUR VIDEO and submit it on Seesaw. Remember that if your video is too large you can always submit the link. NOTE: To receive the highest possible grade, your conversation must be memorized and not read. Make certain that when you record your video, your face is always visible. Failure to show your face at all times will result in a lower score (indicative of someone READING their response). The video must be done in ONE TAKE. NO EDITING of the video is permitted.
Due to the challenge of online learning regarding having a conversation in class... I took this idea from AP courses doing simulated conversations.... This assignment was being used as a SPEAKING assessment (but also tapped into their LISTENING comprehension ability). Our language department sets up grades to assess the four skills: reading, writing, listening, and speaking. Students were previously taught and practiced the following conversational pieces: 1. Basic greetings, introductions, farewells. 2. Asking and responding to: how are you, what's your age, what activities do you like to do, what are you like (personality descriptions using adjectives). 3. Students also had preliminary practice using subject pronouns, the verb SER, GUSTAR, and interrogatives.
