The focus of these classes is to learn Spanish vocabulary, grammar, linguistic components, and culture. Emphasis is placed on the development of Spanish listening, reading, writing and speaking skills as well as cultural understanding. Students will be expected to use all of these communication methods in class.
1. Attendance: Class is the main source of instruction and practice. Students are expected to be diligent in their attendance and to make the most of class time.
2. Outside Practice: Students will have information to memorize, learn and understand. This requires a commitment to study outside of class. Vocabulary should be reviewed daily.
3. Online Resources: Students are expected to make use of Google classroom as well as other sites (GoVocab, Duolingo, Remind) to facilitate learning and provide additional practice and study. Students will be given login information for all online resources.

Grade Recovery Missing/Late Work In order to give each student the best possible learning experience, it is imperative that all parties are held accountable for success (or failure) in the classroom. Responsibility falls on each student, their parents, and their team of teachers. We understand that a student may struggle to master some concepts in a timely manner. Therefore, our Academic Recovery Process is accessible to all students and offered when: ● the student is attending class on a regular basis ● the student has given sufficient first effort on assignments ● the student completes recovery in a timely manner
Student is putting forth effort but is not succeeding · For test retakes or alternative assignments, students will receive a minimum of an average of the two scores but can make no higher than a 70%.· Teachers do not have to accept recovery work after one week prior to the end of the grading period. ·
