Dear Parent/Guardian and Student:
        
    Welcome to Farnsworth Middle School and my Spanish 8 web site.  On this site I list homework, extra credit, dates of quizzes and tests as well as links to information that will be beneficial to you.   If you have a web site that is beneficial for language learning, please share it with me so that I may have a link to it from this site.
    This year students will continue to fulfill the requirements for Checkpoint A proficiency in Spanish AND HAVE A FINAL EXAM.  UPON PASSING THE EXAM WITH A 65 OR HIGHER, THE STUDENT WILL RECEIVE ONE HIGH SCHOOL CREDIT NECESSARY TO FULFILL THE NYS BASIC GRADUATION REQUIREMENT FOR LANGUAGE OTHER THAN ENGLISH PRIOR TO GRADE 10.  Checkpoint A is the beginning of the curriculum and is a graduation requirement for all students in New York State. Checkpoint A:
• emphasizes simple, selected sentence structures, not necessarily limited to the present tense;
• sets the stage for oral and written communication for the beginning language learner;
• fosters cultural understandings;
• includes age-appropriate communicative activities, strategies, and goals that address the particular needs and interests of middle school students;
• encourages interdisciplinary connections; and
• is the first step on the pathway to linguistic proficiency.
