Homework will be given and collected on a regular basis. It should be neatly written in BLUE or BLACK ink or PENCIL. Nothing else will be accepted. ** IF HOMEWORK IS NOT TURNED IN ON THE DAY IT IS DUE, A “O” GRADE WILL BE RECORDED IN THE GRADEBOOK.
Make-up work is YOUR responsibility. I will email you the assignments that you missed. It is YOUR responsibility to check your school email when you are absent to get those assignments. Some assignments may have worksheets that are needed to be completed. Sometimes I can attach those sheets and sometimes they will be in the folders on the assignment board. **Tests and quizzes can be made up during Flex Period, before or after school. It is YOUR responsibility to make arrangements for that.

You are expected to write in your diary weekly. I will collect them, make corrections and grade them. I expect you to read my comments and understand the corrections. If you don’t understand, then ask me questions. This is a learning tool. The idea is to not keep making the same mistakes. Also, since this is Spanish 4, I don’t want Spanish I sentences. We will make the diary in class.
CLASSROOM BEHAVIOR RULES
*You will be in the room when the bell rings, NOT running through the door or you will be counted tardy.
*No food or drinks will be allowed in the room unless cleared by me first.
*If there is a substitute teacher in the room and a note is left for me stating that you have been disruptive, etc., upon my return you will receive a detention.
*No purses or backpacks on the desks or in your lap. They must be put on the floor.
*Recycle Bin – Only put unfolded full sheets of paper in the bin. NO KLEENEX!
Spanish 4 involves many projects as well as studying grammar and vocabulary. You will be asked to do group and individual projects as well as group and individual presentations. Naturally, you are expected to do all work assigned and since this is Spanish 4, a dual credit course and a weighted class, you will be expected to do all work at a high level. If you choose to not do the work assigned, I will choose to drop you from my class at semester. Also, I am assuming since you are taking this class that being able to communicate in Spanish is a very important goal for you. Not only written Spanish is expected, but spoken Spanish. You need to practice as often as you can, in and out of the classroom.
