    General Expectations

    Arrive on time and prepared for class with your necessary materials and a positive and productive attitude.  

    You must have your Spanish Binder/Folder and a pencil with you every day.  If you are someone who benefits from highlighting or color coding your notes, you may bring those materials with you if you choose to.  We will almost always be using pencil.  

     

     

     

     

    Homework:

    Homework will be written on the white board, and distributed in class.  You are strongly encouraged to have a homework buddy, who you can text or call in the event that you are confused about homework.  

    Homework is due IN CLASS on the day it is due.  That means that if your homework is in your locker, it doesn't count.  Homework is worth 5 points and is usually graded for completion and effort (5 points for completed homework, 2.5 points for half compelted homework, 0 points for missing or forgotten homework).   

    When there is not official homework, you should practice your Spanish in some capacity for 5-10 minutes.  This means that you could use Quizlet, play a game on the Duo Lingo app, watch Spanish TV, listen to Spanish music, teach your Spanish vocabulary to your brother/sister/parent, look up new Spanish words for everyday items, etc. 

     

    Technology

    • Please use the online version of the textbook as frequently as you can.  Use your unique class login to access the textbook. 
    • Use quizlet to study your vocabulary words.  There are many useful games that you can use to help reinforce new terms.  There is also an app available to access quizlet from your cellphone.  It is helpful to have your own login for quizlet so you can track your performance. 
    • We will be using iPads frequently in Spanish class.  You will be assigned an iPad number.  You will only use the iPad assigned to you and you will refer to the posted iPad expectations if you have any questions regarding the use of your iPad. 

     

    Tests and Quizzes

    Tests and Quizzes will be communicated in advance, both on the white board and on Remind.  I am available after school Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday to help you prepare for these assessments if you need help, extra practice, or even have a brief question.    

    You can retake a quiz as many times as you need up until the end conclusion of that unit.  You must come after school to go over your previous test/quiz and in order to retake it. You may retake a test only once and must stay after school to go over your first score.  

     

    Communication

    Students:  As a middle school student you are expected to communicate your needs with your teachers!  If you don't understand a concept, if you have a question, if you need help or have a general concern we are always here to help.  You are responsible for staying after school, asking a question, or communicating a concern!
