My Grading Procedures
Participation Grade 25% - this grade is effortless, just participate! A new stamp page will be given to you every 6 weeks for you to collect your stamps. Keep the page in your folder attached with brads or (prongs) so you can find it fast & you don’t lose it. I only give one stamp page per 6 weeks, therefore put the folder away in the classroom. If you lose it, I will give you a 65 for any stamps you may have collected, no exceptions. I give out stamps for awesome actions like:
- working on Activity for Today (Actividad de Hoy) when you arrive
- homework turned in on the date it is due
- participation in speaking
- helping and volunteering
- Above and beyond excellence on your work!
Daily Work 25 % - this grade is a piece of cake, just do it! Classwork you submit in class, work with a partner, or small projects. Completed work turned in on time is graded in class and we discuss graded work so that you may ask questions.
Quizzes 25% - This is a tough one! You got this, just pay attention! We have videos with grammar points, video situations in the Spanish we are learning, and reading about the culture. Sometimes there are only 10 questions which means they are 10 points each, and only miss 2 to B up there where you belong!
Exams 25% - Study! Study! Study! Most of the questions come directly from your book, videos, and your activities for today (Actividad de Hoy).
What you need for Spanish Class: Pen (black or blue ink only), Folder with brads and pockets, a USB jump drive, beautiful smiles and a positive attitude!!!
