My maternity sub is unavailable on one day during finals week, so I needed to develop a new final exam for Spanish II that did not involve the use of the computer. (Last year, I gave my students this exam based on the video La leyenda del espantapájaros.) Wanting to do as little work as possible, I turned to the Embedded Readings blog to see what pre-made readings I could find and turn into a test. I found a reading by Matt (don’t know his last name) about La Llorona that I could work with. Two hours later (so much for saving time, right?), I had a new final exam with a past-tense reading. Since a Spanish speaker will not be administering the exam, it consists only of reading and writing. Download the pretty PDF of the exam here, or download the not-so-pretty Microsoft Word version here. (Since I do all my word processing with Pages, the files often get screwy when I convert them to Word. Sorry!) Both documents are FREE–my Teacher’s Appreciation gift to YOU! The final includes target structures from the storytelling units that I use to focus on the preterite tense (in addition to vocab that we’ve studied since Spanish 1), so check out those students if you are looking for how to adequately prepare your students for the final.
