    ·         Treat everyone with respect - Bring a positive attitude.

    ·         Use appropriate language.

    ·         Electronic devices that interfere with class objective are not allowed.

    ·         No food or drink in the room – except water.

    Bring to class: notebook, dividers, pencils, pens, Textbook

     

    Out-of-Class Learning Activities (tarea):

    Through your tarea, you improve your Spanish and you prepare for assessments. You are expected to invest 15-30 minutes daily out of class. Once you complete the assigned work, continue to study for the remainder of 15-30 minutes: read out loud, practice with flashcards, or visit recommended websites to practice grammar, vocabulary, and answering questions.

     

    Attendance: Attendance and participation are vital to your success in learning a foreign language. I follow the Everett School District attendance policy.

     

    Make-up work: It is essential that you find out what you missed right away. You have one week from the date of your return to make up work.   After that time, missing assignments count as zeros in the gradebook.

    Quiz/Test retakes: There are no retakes unless otherwise announced.   If you believe that extraordinary circumstances interfered with your ability to be ready on test day, come plead your case with me directly.

     

    Extra Credit:     There are various opportunities for extra credit such as orally summarizing current events from Hispanic countries (in English), reading Hispanic literature in translation, or completing research projects on Hispanic topics. There is a 25 point limit to extra credit for every nine week grading period, or 50 points total for the semester.  Extra credit may not be used to earn the grade of A or A-. 

     

    Deadlines: Please talk to me, ahead of time when possible, if you have a difficult situation. To encourage students to keep up with the class, there will be deadlines throughout the semester.

    Participation:   This is a Spanish only classroom.  I will not respond to English unless it is an emergency.  If you feel you must express yourself in English, ask permission in Spanish (“Podría hablar en inglés) and I will let you make a brief statement.  If you speak English in class without permission, you will lose two points.  If you don’t speak at all, especially during small group work, you will lose one point.
