Spanish Introductory Guideline Sheet
To:     Students in Spanish 1
From: Ms. Johnson
Date:  September  5, 2000

Bienvenidos a la clase de español. I first want to congratulate you on making an excellent choice on taking Spanish this year. I look forward to working with you as you learn to read and converse in Spanish, decode Spanish words, build up a foundation in grammar, and study the fascinating history and culture of Mexico.  As you know, this is a forty-minute class, which meets every other day for 7th grade, everyday for 8th, maybe subject to change. However, you will be very active as you work in partnerships and groups, and the time will pass quickly and profitably. I want this to be fun and enjoyable year learning Spanish as it may be all new material to you.

Some introductory guidelines are:
1.  homework is important. Homework is not always written, can be to study vocab by saying, reading, writting or reading pages in the text. If you are absent, it is your responsibility to find out the
                 homework as well as the classwork for the day you have missed.  Having a homework
                 buddy, as most middle school and high school  students do, is an excellent idea.
2.  attendance is crucial, as each class period is forty minutes of time
                Additionally, your participation grade is also based on attendance.
3.  tests and quizzes missed during an absence due to illness must be made up promptly.
4.  projects must be submitted on the due date; if they are not, you will lose ten credits
                 per day.

Grading is considered a positive tool to indicate achievement and development in Spanish 1.

Your grade for each quarter of this course will be computed as follows:
25% unit tests
25% homework
25% quizzes
25% participation/oral/projects/journal/notebook
For homework checks:check + = 100, Check =80, check - =65, check x, 50 or you can get a 0 if nothing was none.
*This grading system may be subject to change. If you are doing it in class when I check it, forget it, it will be a 0.

No introductory sheet would be complete without a list of expectations.  Mine are that:
you are courteous to everyone in the class
you arrive promptly, if you are late please have a pass
you are prepared with book, notebook, pen, homework
you participate fully in individual and group work
you will prepare all assignments in a neat and orderly way

I am available to help you on any late bus day, and during my free periods.  Please ask for help or makeup time when you need it.  Again, I look forward to meeting you and working with you this semester.  Have a happy and productive year!
