¡Bienvenidos! Welcome! We have great plans for Spanish 1 this year! Activities include:
· Basic conversation, listening, reading, writing
· Cultures of the Spanish-speaking world
· Use of district standards for world language acquisition
· Assessment for all spheres of language acquisition
· Preparation for district final exam
· Preparation for Spanish 2
Scale: 90% - 100% A; 80 – 89% B; 70- 79% C; 60 – 69% D; below 60% F.
Weight of Assignments: Speaking, Reading, Writing, Listening (Proficiency) - 50%; Quizzes, Tests, Unit Assessments (Practice) - 40%; Homework – 10%. Grade averages accumulate throughout entire semester. The 1st semester final exam counts for 20% of the overall 1st semester grade. The year-end final (given at the end of the 2nd semester) counts for 20% of the overall 2nd semester grade.
No late work accepted. Student with excused absence may have the same number of days he/she was absent to make up the assignment. Tests and quizzes must be made up during my tutorial times during lunch,during another Spanish teacher’s tutorial time (See Tutoring), or at a specially scheduled time.
Students must take the responsibility themselves to check the calendar on my web site or ask me what they missed.
Lion Time: Tuesdays and Thursdays, during 2nd hour.
Any day after school by appointment.
If the above times are not sufficient, we will find a time convenient for us both.
A writing utensil; paper; a red pen for grading; and a folder dedicated to Spanish class. Students are expected to keep all Spanish materials together and easily accessible.
Communication (See top of letter)
I am happy to talk with you about your student, whether your concern is large or small. I welcome your questions and co-operation. Together, let’s make this year productive and enjoyable for your student. Thank you!
Sincerely, Sra. Hughes, Spanish 1
