The student homework is to study chapter 1-8 vocabulary--either in the hand out or in the textbook--extra copies of the handout are available upon request, just ask for one extra.
Read the vocabulary words aloud (using the five Spanish basic sounds) also write the words in Spanish until you know the meaning of the words in English.
The homework also includes reviewing/studying the notes taking during class.
At the end of every chapter, there will be five mandatory tests: 1) speaking, 2) listening, 3) reading, 4) writing and 5)visual comprehension. These tests represent the five domains of language.
I allow students to retake quizzes and tests. In class, I will reteach the subject and provide extra practice time, then I will schedule a retake date during regular class time or during the student(s) lunch time.
Students learn by doing!
Students practice the new culture, vocabulary, and grammar completing their workbook assignment (hand out) using their textbook as a reference. Student are encouraged to work together in class.
Please bring your workbook and textbook to class everyday.
