Tips for a Great Final Project

As we head into the final project and exam, here are a few tips for creating a great final project:

  • Get started early.
  • Do not plan what you are going to say in English first (this trips even the best students up, every time!).
  • Carefully review the Summary of Course Content Document:
  • You shouldn’t have to use a dictionary or a translation of any type with this project.
  • Take pride in your project.
  • Remember that the content is the most important ingredient.
  • Before you submit your project, do a checklist for yourself of the vocabulary and structures.
  • As a final step, look over the project and ask yourself if it showcases what you know/have learned in Spanish?

Conduct Reminder for Students

  • Academic Dishonesty applies to those who not only take, but give their work to another student. As we head into the final, if you feel tempted to share your work with another student remember this fact. Here is a link to the Student Conduct document as a refresher: especially this part: NCVPS expects students to maintain academic integrity while participating in online courses. These expectations include the following: Students’ work (such as assignments, postings, tests, and projects) must be original. Student collaboration with others on any assignment must be pre-approved by instructors.Plagiarism, copyright infringement, falsifying work, and cheating are unacceptable.
