Welcome to Spanish 4. Our focus in level 4 is to expand student knowledge of the grammatical structures and of vocabulary. I do not operate on a point system, I grade everything out of 100% and weight my grades in categories as follows:
10% - Notebook
20% - Participation
20% - Homework
20% - Quizzes
30% - Tests and Projects
We will be relying heavily on our Student Interactive Notebooks (cuaderno interactivo estudantil) in order to do homework. All homework is online on the Quia website and linked through Schoology. There is an assignment for every day we have a scheduled class. The homework page goes online every Friday at midnight and comes down the following Friday at midnight. This is a college level class and a certain level of maturity is expected. There are quizzes nearly every other day. Students will write their own vocabulary quizzes. There is a test or a project at the end of every 2 units of study. Every test or project has a speaking component.
Students of Spanish 4 are expected to bring a 100 page composition notebook, 3 glue sticks and 2 packs of lined index cards (200 count)
