¡Hola! Bienvenidos a la clase de español

Welcome to your first year of Spanish learning.  Knowledge of another language is an integral part of receiving a World Class Education in Prince William County. The Spanish I team looks forward to sharing our passion for World Languages with you this year! 

COURSE DESCRIPTION                                                                                                                      

By the end of this course, students will be expected to master all the objectives of the Spanish I curriculum, integrating all four communication skills: listening, speaking, writing and reading.  Students will also develop the ability to discuss topics related to historical and contemporary events and issues, culturally pertinent to our units of study, utilizing authentic Spanish material.

Assessment Categories

Category Weights

Summative Assessments

80%

Formative Assessments

20%

NOTE:  For summative assessments that involve speaking and writing, the students will be graded using the Prince William County PALS rubrics.  These rubrics can be found on my Colgan World Languages Class Page.

GRADE/MISSINE ASSIGNMENTS                                                                                                 

Grades are reflective of a student’s level of mastery of an objective. Students will be given multiple opportunities to master objectives. The Spanish I teachers encourage students to turn in their assignments on the date which they are due. It is the student’s responsibility to make arrangements for make-up work and extra help.  The teacher will enter INC (Incomplete)/NHI (Not Handed In) into the gradebook until the assignment has been turned in.

 

RETAKE PROCESS                                                                                                                           

Students wishing to take advantage of retakes may retake assessments.  To retake an assessment, the teacher will announce a date for remediation and a date to complete the retake. Students must attend the remediation session in order to complete the retake.

OFFICE HOURS                                                                                                                                       

My office hours are on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 2:15 to 3:00. If you plan to utilize office hours, please make an appointment via email or in-person stating the concepts that you would like to review.

CONTACT INFORMATION                                                                                                          

Students and parents, the best way to reach me is through e-mail at vergars@pwcs.edu. Both students and parents should check Student VUE and Parent VUE on a regular basis and contact me as soon as a concern arises.

ADDITIONAL INFORMATION

INFORMATIVE DATA                                                                                                                             

In addition to the summative and formative categories, the gradebook will reflect some assessments that will not count on the final grade. This information will be under the gradebook category labeled INFORMATIVE

ELECTRONIC DEVICES                                                                                                                 

Electronic devices are valuable resources for students to have in the classroom, and there will be several opportunities for students to use them for learning activities throughout the school year.  For the times that students are not using their devices for learning purposes, the devices should remain in their backpacks.  The students will be notified at the beginning of class as to whether or not they will be using electronic devices during the class period.

During tests and quizzes, students will place any/all devices into a location designated by the teacher.

Remember, I am here to help. Please let me know if I can assist you in any way.

Have a great year, Tiburones!
