Spanish Sylabus  

WELCOME TO SPANISH CLASS!!!

I am looking forward to a very positive and productive year. The ROHS curriculum focuses on student development of the four basic skills that include listening, reading, speaking, and writing in the target language. Assessments will include major tests, major projects, quizzes, classwork, homework, and oral presentations. Cooperative learning will be used in class.

The textbook that will be used this year is ¡Así se dice! Students will be able to use it in the classroom along with online resources. A class set will be available for the use in the classroom.

CLASS SUPPLIES: binder/notebook paper or spiral, blue or black ink pen for assignments, red ink pen for corrections, colored pencils.

GRADING EACH SIX WEEKS: Tests/Major projects/Oral presentations count 60%. Daily work/Quizzes count 25%. Homework counts 15%

Attendance in class is very important. In learning Spanish the student will participate in a variety of activities daily. All students are expected to be in their seats, ready to work when the bell rings. Tardies will be handled in accordance with the Red Oak High School parent/student Handbook.

FULL CREDIT: turned in on day it is due.

LATE WORK: any assignment not turned in on the requested due date will receive a deduction of 15 points per day of being late up to a maximum of 3 days or 45 points. After 3 days late if the assignment is still not submitted the work will not be accepted and the student will receive a zero. Major assignments (Projects) first day late will receive a deduction of 25 points; second day late will receive a deduction of 50 points; third day will receive a zero.

MAKE-UP WORK: make up missed work is the responsibility of the student. If the student is absent and needs to take a test or quiz, student will sign up to take it within three school days from the test you missed. If the student is absent, he/she has as many days as he/she was gone to finish the work for full credit. If the make up work is not turned in by the designated date, the assignment will refer to the late work policy.
