Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
The assignment was to either make an radio show or tv show about how to resolve problems they are having in their relationship. My group decided to do a radio show because we wanted to do something different.

What did you learn from doing this project?  I learned different shortcuts of how to pronounce things. I also learned a lot more spanish.

How do you feel about your final product?I feel really good about the finish product. I know we all kept recording over and over so I know it will be good.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same? I would change it to video. Because we have a lot of funny lines so I think they are meant to see.

what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
The assignment was to create a project based around relationships using the subjunctive, present perfect tenses and verbs ser and estar. My group decided to do a spanish version of the show Cheaters because we would be able t utilize all the components that needed to be included in our project.

What did you learn from doing this project?  

I learned how to properly conjugate verbs in the subjunctive clause and also how to give advice. 


How do you feel about your final product?

I feel that we worked very hard on our project and the final project is a great display of all the hard work we put into our project.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I would probably organize our time a little bit better but other than that I love our concept and I think we did a great job.

Q3 BM Reflection

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

For our Quarter 3 Bm, as a group we had to ether make a love game show or radio show and the it would be surrounded around trying to give advice. Each individual person had to use the verbs ser and estar, as well as using the subjunctive tense, and the past perfect tense. Our group decided to do a radio show that was focused on callers callers phoning in with their problems. We thought that this format was easier to edit as well as on an individual level (each person could record at home if they wanted),


What did you learn from doing this project?  


From this project, I think I have bettered my ability to use each tense, as well as gaining a better understanding of the past perfect tense. I also feel like I learned a lot more technical skills (because I did a lot more editing than I have done in the past).


How do you feel about your final product?

I'm very proud of my group! I know that I kind of pushed everyone when it came to pronunciations, and I feel as they everyone gave their best efforts when recording their parts. Also, I love the dialogue that my group cam up with! I feel like we have some great lines in there.


If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same? 

I think that I would've either tried a video and did a love show, or I would've have played around with more sound effects on our audio.

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
 In this BM we have to talk about relationships. So my group decides that we can make a radio station kind of love guru or love doctor to fix people's relationship. We think that it's pretty funny and easy hence the reason why we wanted to use the idea.

What did you learn from doing this project?  

We learned new vocabularies! We also learned new things about spanish grammar and how to use it properly. 

How do you feel about your final product?

I think it's okay. I guess we could've did something that will make it more appealing and A+ kind of project. 

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I guess we could have a better script and storyline.

what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?
We had to create a multimedia piece of work that included us helping people with relationship problems, something like maury or dr phill. We decided to do a podcast that was kind of like a call in thing. You call in to get advice from the people at the telephone service. 


What did you learn from doing this project?  

I didn't necessarily learn anything, however i gained more practice with talking about relationships in spanish and did some more work on subjunctives. 


How do you feel about your final product?

I feel good about the final product, we all put an equal amount of effort into the project and i think we all worked well together. 

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I think maybe we could use a different medium? Perhaps a video?

E3.U4: Las Relaciones Personales BM

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment? 

The Third Quarter Benchmark was a Tv show or Radio show with guests that talk about and resolve relationship problems. We needed to have a set of Characters for the cast with a host a couple and other people giving there takes and how to resolve the problems that were happening to the Couples

What did your group decide to do and why?

My Group decided to make a Radio Show. We decided to make a Radio show because we usually make videos for spanish and we thought We could change it up once and a while. Something refreshing, we also tried to make the podcast very, very good.

What did you learn from doing this project?  

I honestly learned a good amount of spanish and learned how to pronounce things very well. Also, I learned that i am really on my game because i was usually the first one to finish his part in our group. And, being in a group with Sasha, Arlana, Amanda, and Aja is pretty banging'

How do you feel about your final product?

The Final product should be pretty good, some good music, some good spanish should equal a great podcast. I feel like this should deserve a high grade because we all worked collectively very hard on it for a long time.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I would use a video actually, with a video you can make the audience use there eyes and their ears instead of just their ears. We also could of made it a little more comedic because there could of been a good amount of bickering in this and that would of just added a lot more fun and laughs to this project. But overall, it was fun and i enjoyed making this project with my amazing group mates.

E3.U4: Las Relaciones Personales BM

The assignment was to create radio or TV show about a troubled  relationship and get advice on how to fix it. Each person had to write their own script which have to have 10 vocabulary words, 3 Ser verbs, 3 estar and 3 subjunctives. Our group decided to do a radio show because of the amount of time we had. We thought that filming would be difficult to plan and not enough class time. Well I thought that i had a chance to actually use the vocabulary, which i had trouble applying to class discussions. I also understand the uses of estar and ser way better because we had it on the google doc and when people edited my work they would point out the verb mistake. I currently have a better understanding of the topics that needed to be covered in the Benchmark. I felt that this benchmark was helpful for my understanding of this unit. I felt that our final product was good, but it could have been better. We should have had a surprise twist like my boyfriend was really my brother. I wish it could have been more over the top and ridiculously funny. I would have also changed te fact that we did a radio show. I would do a TV show because it can be more dramatic and just funny if done correctly, I felt it was difficult making our dialogue funny. Also on a TV show we could completely change our appearance which would help with creating a new persona. I would have basically the same plot because i thought it was sort of interesting. To conclude I enjoyed this project and hope to see more projects similar to this one.

E3.U4: Las Relaciones Personales


Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment? 

For this assignment the objective was to make a radii or tv show, with guest that have relationship problems. along with audience members and a host any way we saw fit towards productive project.

What did your group decide to do and why?

My group decided to make a radio show. The reason why is because when ever we receive benchmarks the first thing that is always made are movies for people to see. So we though why not make something a bit different now that we have the chance to and we wanted to see if would could make a podcast come to life. 

What did you learn from doing this project?  

I learned that sometimes when you finalize all the written components of an assignment, that it can still feel unfinished. I usually get the feeling of complete when all the written aspects of my assignments are done but this time I didn't feel that way. 

How do you feel about your final product?

I feel confident about my final product an it turned out how I thought it would. 

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differentlssy/the same?

The only thing that I would change about this is the fact that it is all a podcast, I would add video to it too. Having a set up of things happening on a show with people and the people on the show phone in their friends. That's when the podcast would come into play.

Our group thought the idea of the bachelorette fit into the category of love good. I definitely learned how to speak using subjugates a lot better. Also I learned where the present perfect verbs are very useful to use. I like it, I think it has a comical touch to it. I think our script could have been better, maybe by having more of a realistic Bachelorette feel. But we did a pretty good job. I would like to film in different places next time, we stuck to the school and I think it would have been better if we filmed in a variety of places.

Grupo de Perú, "El Juego de Amor"

​https://www.scienceleadership.org/blog/El_Juego_de_Amor--_Allen-Chelsea-Jessica-Vinny-Grupo_de_Peru 

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

We had to talk about relationship problems and various things having to do with relationships. My group made a podcast as if it was a radio station. A couple and their friend called in the get advice and help with the relationship that was going down hill. We thought this would be a good way to do the project that we all wanted to do. 

What did you learn from doing this project?  

We learned how to make a radio station/podcast. Also we worked on our grammar and pronunciation of spanish words and saying them on the spot. We also worked on having a continuing conversation without stoping. 

How do you feel about your final product?

I love it! I think it turned out good. We all worked hard and put a lot of effort into it. I am very proud of it and want to thank my group for being so great with everything!

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I would probably read the description better because we were confused at first and maybe start earlier? But I like how everything worked out so over all I wouldn't change a thing.

"El Juego de Amor" - Allen, Chelsea, Jessica, Vinny (Grupo de Perú)

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment? 


For the benchmark, we were to either make a podcast or a movie speaking about relationships. 


What did your group decide to do and why?


-My group made a podcast, because we felt that it would be better to record our voices than make a video. 


What did you learn from doing this project?  


I think that I learned more vocab words. There were only a few words that I knew before this, and now I feel that I learned a few more. I also think I learned a little more about the use of subjunctives. 


How do you feel about your final product?


I like our final product. I think that putting the script together wasn't too bad. We were able to come up with an idea pretty quickly, so putting the script together wasn't all that bad. And, we were able to effectively record the podcast. 


If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?


I think if we could do it all over again, I would want to probably record again, and maybe do a video instead of a radio show.

La Soltera: By NaQuan Harding, Bernicia Guercio, & Kenisha Hood

 http://scienceleadership.org/media/open/14377


What was the assignment?  What did your group decide to do and why?

For the project, we had to use what we knew about the past perfect tense and the use of ser and estar in order to create a podcast or a video involving relationships. For our group, we've decided to do a little parody of The Bachelorette because it would allow us to describe ourselves using ser and estar, as well as letting use the past perfect tense.

What did you learn from doing this project? 

I learned how to use ser and estar better in conversation. I even learned that I was using ser wrong a lot in the past, so it helped me fix that. I also grew a bit more comfortable speaking in Spanish for extended lengths of time, even if it was all scripted. I felt more natural, basically.

How do you feel about your final product?

Given my initial feelings about parodying a show I've never nor will ever watch, I think I did well, but I think we could've done better. For instance, instead of having a video recording of us actually having a conversation, we just taped us pretending to talk, and then put a separate audio recording of us actually talking over it. Stuff like that is always obvious to see, and I think we could've done an actual recording if we had enough time and practice.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?

I think I'd sharpen the dialogue so that it sounded more natural and flowing, as well as give a bit more emotion behind my character. Since the final recordings took place right before it was due, I sort of rushed through it.

PERDIDO EN EL AMOR Con Chelsea y Lulu

By: Lulu , Chelsea J. Smith , Keiasha Lumpkins

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment?  


The Assignment was too create a presentation on a problem someone has about love. Such as a radio, a video etc.

What did your group decide to do and why?


We decided to do a radio show. We thought that it would be more entertaining for people to hear. 


What did you learn from doing this project? 

I learned how to work with others in a project, communicate, and also more spanish experience. Hearing how you pronounce words and what you can improve on.

 

How do you feel about your final product?



I feel we put a lot of effort in to the project. There are somethings that could be improved on, but they are minor. Over all we did a great job as a group.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?


We would make the radio show pop out more. More interesting, effects, also maybe a movie next time. So it could be more visual to people.

Reflexíon [:

For this unit, we were focusing on love, advice, and subjunctive. Our vocabulary words were mainly about relationships. Our task for this assignment was to create a show or a podcast based on relationships problems. We decided to make a podcast/radio show. Only because none of us really wanted to be recorded on screen. LOL. Our podcast is specifically a radio show and has all the requirements that a radio show needs. I learned how to conjugate in my present tense and I learned how to give advice in spanish. Ay dios mío! I feel great about my final project. I put in a lot of effort and work. And our script took us a lot of time. If I could do this project again, I would maybe add more script. And jokes?

Amor Trágico en WSLA 101.5

Describe the Q3BM: what was the assignment? 

-We had to make a podcast or a tv show about relationship issues. 

What did your group decide to do and why?

-My group made a podcast because we wanted to get involved with the script rather than focusing on making a video or anything.

What did you learn from doing this project?  


-I learned more about the subjunctive, which I was still having trouble with. I also realized that I used ser and estar without even thinking. 

How do you feel about your final product?


-I'm really happy with the final product. We worked well as a group and it showed since we are done a day early.

If you could do your project all over again, what would you do differently/the same?



-I guess I would do a video. It might have been fun to make it as if they were guests in the studio.

Mis criticas de las películas en Español 5

Todas de las películas tienen un tema subrayado, todas se tratan de problemas familiares y mujeres fuertes. Por ejemplo en la película Yo soy la Juani, una chica, Juani, fue la protagonista. Ella tiene una madre que no se defendía contra su esposo. El padre de Juani era un borracho. Por su pobresa, toda la familia está descontenta con su situación. Aunque Juani tuvo que luchar con problemas emocionales, ella era todavía capaz de soñar con convertirse en una actriz. Luego ella se fue a Madrid para perseguir su sueño, haciendo de ella una mujer fuerte.

 

La segunda película se llama Todo sobre mi madre, fue una película sobre un hombre joven que fue golpeado por un coche y matado enfrente de su madre. Él trataba de conseguir un autógrafo de uno de sus actrices favoritas. Pero fue matado por su coche antes de que él pudiera obtenerlo. Por eso, su madre decidió perseguir la actriz a la locación de su próxima interpretación. Ellas se convertieron amigas y su madre le dice la historia de su hijo que fue asesinado. Ella es un caractér fuerte porque ella dicidió seguir la actriz, ganar su confianza, y obtener un autógrafo para su hijo.

 

La tercera película fue Volver, una película estraña pero muy bien hecha. Vemos la película desde la perspectiva de una feminista. Esta película en particular enseña muchas caratéres femininas fuertes. Todas las caratéres tienen un problema familiar que intentan esconder de las otras protagonistas.

Amor Tragico
This project asked students to create a television or radio show that addresses some sort of relationship problem. Our group decided to create a radio show because we thought that this approach would be different from what some of the other groups were doing and we thought it would be a more enjoyable approach. From this project I learned how to incorporate the verbs ser and estar with an already established understanding various tenses, and a new set of vocabulary to speak to a topic that can be serious or funny. I think our final product came out pretty well. It is light and quite funny. If I could do this project over, I would add more conversation between the charaters experiencing relationship problems. I think that part could have been expanded a bit more.
