A different type of "assessment"...

My school is going through the NEASC Accreditation process and I am on the Assessment committee, so I have been thinking and reading a lot about assessment! 

In my Cultura y Civilización class, we are currently doing a unit that revolves around the movie "Ocho Apellidos Catalanes"(totally free here) (before our lotería unit... is the extraterrestre a representation of los catalanes?!?) and I wanted to do a different evaluación.

So how to assess a unit with these Preguntas Esenciales (unit packet)?
  • ¿De dónde vienen los estereotipos/tópicos? ¿Son buenos o malos los estereotipos/tópicos? Explica.
  • ¿Cómo es la cultura española diversa? ¿Cómo son similares y/o diferentes algunos productos, prácticas, y perspectivas culturales de las diferentes comunidades autónomas de España?
  • ¿Cómo son similares y/o diferentes algunos estereotipos/tópicos de España con algunos de los Estados Unidos?
I came up with 16 different things that students can choose from. These could definitely be used for any movie and for any level! 

They have to do one of the choices after each part of the movie (I have divided it into six parts). You can see the choices that students have for la evaluación here (or scroll down to the bottom of this post). The rubric (linked here or scroll down) includes a couple of strands from our School Wide Rubric (SWR). In my grade book, this assessment will go into two categories: Communication and Comparisons/Culture/Connections.

And here are some examples of what some students have done so far for the first two parts. I will be adding more as we continue the unit. I love "correcting"  these and I love to see their reactions and their creativity! I really love the "Movie Snaps"!
