2. Paragraph Grammar

The paragraph is written in the most perfect Spanish possible for your level. It needs to look like you put forth effort.

3. Punctuation & Spelling

4. Creativity

Use a dictionary or each other for help. You need to make sure that you spell all of the used words correctly. Punctuation is different in Spanish. Make sure you have your paragraphs proofread by Ms. Young or a peer before the final draft. You can be creative in the layout of the family tree, the family you create, the explanation of each person, etc.

5. Professionalism

The family tree needs to be neat and look professional. For example, it can’t be submitted if it is completed in pencil. This project needs to be completed and you need to put forth effort into the final product.
