        Friday, August 23, 2019

        Welcome Back!

        Here is a note for Spanish Class that was either handed out at the open house or during the first week of school. In the event it becomes lost, here is a copy.

        §Binder: (Due Monday, August 26, 2019)
        v Binder will be graded and is required to be kept neat, organized, and intact for the entire year. There will be a lot of papers handed out in this class that will need to be kept in binder.
        v Those who keep follow the requirements should have an easy grade to cushion overall grade.
        §  Must be durable and last entire year (around 1” width)
        §  8 Dividers (preferably with pocket) for each chapter
        §  8 Cheap dividers or a way to divide notes from assignments for each chapter
        §  Recommend reinforced paper for homework and notes so it will last
        § Book Deposit: $5 (No later than August 26, 2019)
        v Due before student will be issued a textbook for the year which goes toward cost of wear/ replacement of book.
        §Internet access:
        v From time to time, there will be homework assignments that require internet access. It will be your responsibility to ensure the assignments are completed by the due date, even if you do not have internet access at your home or the internet fails. Late assignment policies will take effect. School or public library may be options.
        §Dictionary:
        v Spanish 1: It is recommended that you have a paper dictionary.
        v Spanish 2: You are REQUIRED to have a paper dictionary.
        v If you want me to purchase the dictionary for you, please bring $5 no later than Wed, Aug. 28, 2019.
        v Google translate is a free app for mobile devices and is great, but it should be limited to single word searches as dependence on the translator (which of course is easier short-term) will limit your ability to learn and will end up affecting your overall grade long-term.
        §Writing utensils:
        v Graded assignments: (i.e. homework, quizzes, tests)
        §  Pencil RECOMMENDED for everything, and is required for tests/quizzes. Only other options is black pen. NO COLORS.
        v Class notes:
        §  Your preference of pen/highlighter colors
        §Blog/Homework:
        v Homework will be graded, and is a large part of your grade. Assignments will be given both in class and on the blog. IT IS YOUR RESPONSIBILITY TO CHECK DAILY FOR ASSIGNMENTS DUE! Spanish class is three times per week. Homework will be assigned for those days. It will be due the next class, unless otherwise instructed. Many times, homework is forgotten over the weekend, so make sure to remember what is due on Monday. Exceptions will not be given for forgetfulness. There will be reading assignments given regularly prior to class. Please be sure to read and come to class prepared. For full credit, it is your responsibility to be organized and ensure assignments are ready on time.
