POLICIES AND PROCEDURES FOR SPANISH II - SRA. DUNNIGAN – 2011 - 2012

WELCOME
Bienvenidos a la clase de español II. In this class, students will memorize more vocabulary and learn many verb tenses in preparation for Spanish III or college level Spanish. Spanish III is an honors course.

GOAL
The learning of a language involves four functions: 1) speaking, 2) listening / comprehending, 3) reading, and 4) writing.

ACADEMIC EXPECTATIONS
Foreign language learning is a cumulative process; each step builds upon another. If you allow yourself to fall behind, it becomes difficult to catch up. Bring daily to class (unless otherwise directed) the following:
- a pencil or an erasable ink pen
- a notebook with pockets & your textbook
- 2 or 3 packages 3” x 5” cards
- colored pencils or colored markers

GRADING POLICY
Your quarter grade with be calculated as follows:
- 45% tests/projects
- 25% quizzes
- 10% homework
- 20% class work/participation
Students should make vocabulary flash cards to study vocabulary words. The flash cards may be turned in the day of the quiz for extra quiz grade points. Extra grade point flash cards will not be accepted late. There are usually opportunities to earn extra grade points on the vocabulary quizzes. If a student is absent the day of the vocabulary quiz, he will take a quiz without the extra grade point opportunities. We will make verb and grammar study guides in class to help students master the verb tenses we will study. Opportunities to earn extra points are limited and will be announced in class.

STUDENT SUCCESS IN FOREIGN LANGUAGE – ACTION PLAN
• Teacher will make contact with parents of students with academic difficulties within the first three weeks of the semester.
• A student who fails a test or earns a D on a given test may request a re-test with the understanding that 76% is the highest grade possible they can earn.
All test re-takes must be taken with FOREIGN LANGUAGE DEPARTMENT
HOMEWORK POLICY
Students enrolled in a foreign language class should expect to have homework in the target language on a regular basis. When there is no written assignment, it is expected that students will study vocabulary and grammar concepts.
• Homework will count a maximum of 10% of the total grade.
• Students with excused absences can make up homework for full credit provided the assignment is completed within the time frame established by the teacher, after which the late policy applies: students may have up to five days to make up work capped at a 10% maximum deduction.
• www.quia.com/pages/jdunnigan/page1 to get assignments while you are outin a week from the time of the original test.
• Teacher may assign students to Smart Lunch or may ask the students to come in before or after school for extra help.

EXPECTATIONS There are not many rules in this class. Students are expected to be present, punctual, prepared and pleasant. This means they are to bring a positive attitude into class daily and come ready to work. Students need to be in their seat when the tardy bell rings. Students will not be allowed to disrupt the class.
CRITERIA FOR REMEDIATION
A student enrolled in any level of a foreign language must show at least 80% proficiency in all areas of language learning: listening, speaking, reading and writing. Assessments for these skills include teacher assessments, blue diamond assessments and common assessments devised by the teacher and his/her colleagues (PLT groups).
In case a student performs below that 80% mark in any of the skills mentioned above, the student may be assigned to Smart Lunch.
During Smart Lunch sessions on Fridays, the student will reinforce those concepts necessary to achieve 80% proficiency on any kind of formal assessment.
The Foreign Language Smart Lunch sessions on Tuesday are reserved for make-up work and enrichment activities (see Homework Policy).
The goal of remediation is to get all students to at least 80% proficiency before a chapter test is taken.

CLASSROOM PROCEDURES
Have homework assignments completed before class and ready to be checked. Every homework assignment grade is checked. If you are absent, you must obtain a Class Admit Slip to enter class, and it is your responsibility to see that I sign it. If I do not receive a slip indicating that your absence was excused by the second day after an absence, I will have to conclude that you were skipping. You must remain in your seat until the dismissal bell rings.

INTERIM REPORTS
Interim reports to parents will be issued according to the school calendar to each student. Interim reports are to be signed by the student’s parent or guardian.

My parents/guardians and I have read these rules and policies and understand the expectations for the class.
