Begin researching your topic after reading about Formal Oral Presentational Speaking in the sites below.

All presentations must have information from .at least 3 sources
Even if you are watching a movie, you still must look for two other sources for your topic with information about the time period and people involved.  Refer to these resources when you present.

Refer to these pages under Formal Speaking or Formal Oral Presentations: (These are links to my pages on this website.)

https://srarose4.wordpress.com/ap-test Also look for the Lista de Muletillas for help with those comments we make when we are thinking about what to say next or linking our thoughts.  You should pick a few that you will rely on when you get stressed. (and you will – it’s okay!)

https://srarose4.wordpress.com/ap-test/tips-for-preparing-for-the-ap-exam (You can also find help with citing your sources here… phrases to use and how to use them)

When looking for information about your topic or person, try to include news articles.  To the right, there are many links to newspapers from Latin America.  Look at Noticias y Periódicos.

Here is a site where you can print a study sheet of verb tenses. It’s in color. I have printed them for you in black and white, but the changes to the verbs are highlighted in various colors to help you see those changes if you download it here:





Your task:

Tell us about your topic, the background of the person’s life, the movie, or the event.
