¡¡Bienvenidos a la Clase de Español!!

Students: Please check Infinite Campus weekly, as this will help you better understand your progress throughout the year.  If there are any discrepancies or questions, please let me know right away so we can address any concerns. If you have completed your daily work, you may check IC during class time. Absences: All work is located on Google Classroom, but please rest and get better. If you are feeling better and want to work on classwork, please access Google Classroom. If you have any question, please contact me at my ACS email: lichtyc@academycharter.org
Class Participation:
Participation is important in any class, but it is the most important part of a foreign language class because language is learned as a community- you must speak and interact with others to truly learn a language. Because of this, we will be doing many different activities that require you to work in groups or with partners. I expect all of you to make mistake, think of yourself as a toddler learning their language for the first time, mistakes allow us to learn and because of that they are a beautiful thing. As long as you have a good attitude and do your best work, you will learn in my class.
Academic Integrity:
Copying work or allowing your work to be copied will result in loss of the grade for that assignment, and if it becomes a bigger issue, other more severe repercussions. Also, using online translators will not help you to learn Spanish. I can tell the difference between mistakes made by actually attempting to do your work, and using Google Translate. I would much rather see what you can do, not what Google can do. That being said, however, please feel free to use dictionaries (paper copies or online) if there is a specific word that you do not know how to say. I still have to do that sometimes as well!
Homework/ Grades:
Students will have weekly homework online, assignments will be posted through Google Classroom. They will also have to log time doing something that requires them to be exposed to the Spanish language. This could include (but is not limited to) reading books in Spanish, watching TV shows or movies with Spanish AUDIO and optional English subtitles, cooking a recipe that is written in Spanish, going on educational Spanish websites- this will be explained in more detail to students within the first few days of class. All of this information and due dates will be posted on the individual grade calendars.
