Grade categories are weighted as:
o Assessments = 50%
o Classwork = 40%
o Homework = 10%
Mid-Term: administered in January and is 25% of semester 2 grade.
Final Exam: administered in June and is 25% of semester 4 grade.
Homework: is given every class to help mastery level learning.
Late work: is at the DISCRETION OF THE TEACHER! This is a higher level course and assignments should be handed in on time according to due date! Throughout the course there are opportunities to earn credit for missed assignments but they will consist of different work.
Absent: it is the student’s responsibility to meet with the teacher to discussed missed work. I recommend checking my website first, speak to a friend and then if needed see instructor. Work missed due to absence that is not turned in or completed in a reasonable amount of time (about 3 days) will likely have points deducted accordingly.
- If student is late to class, a signed pass is required. If this is a consistent problem detention may be given for tardiness.
- Do NOT use the online internet services for translation purposes beyond a one or two word phrase! It will be obvious and a zero will be given for the work.
The Spanish III course outline and literature is a working document. There are constant changes so please be aware course outline will not be complete until the end of the year.
