Bienvenidos a la clase de español Señorita Woeste La sala 1405 Lebanon High School
Srta. Woeste’s Recipe for success: • Arrive to class on time, alert and prepared • Raise hand often to participate (in Spanish) and ask questions • Do homework every night to the best of your ability • Study vocabulary at least 10-15 minutes each day. Daily study will prepare you for quizzes or tests
Materials you will need: • 3-ring binder • Three dividers • Paper • Pencils • Colored pencils or Markers
Grade System • Total Points earned/total possible points = grade average • Example: 400/500=.80=80% • Grading Scale: • 92-100 A 83-91 B 74-82 C 65-73 D 0-64 F
Participation • Each time a student raises his or her hand and answers correctly in Spanish, he/she will receive one participation point. • Every few weeks each student’s points are added together and converted to a grade based on the class average for participation. • Grades reflect the students’ frequency and ability to speak Spanish in class.
The dreaded “Págame” • “Págame” a.k.a. “pay me” one participation pt. • Given as a consequence for speaking out in English without permission or disrupting class.
Why is it so important for us to speak only Spanish in class? • When you were a baby and first learned English, did your mommy speak to you in Japanese? • Your brain naturally follows the path of least resistance and will not hear Spanish if English is also floating around the classroom. • Spanish is Supercool!!!
Tarea Homework Tarea • Homework assignments are checked or collected at the beginning of class each day. • No late homework will be accepted (even if it is finished and in your locker). • Repeated failure to turn in homework assignments will result in a parent phone call. • Copying someone else’s homework is CHEATING. You and the person whose work your copied will each earn a zero.
What to do if you are absent… • Check Señorita Woeste’s website for homework and assignments. There is 1:1 ratio for make up days. Therefore, if you missed one day, all work must be turned in one day after you return. • Upon returning ask me for any worksheets or handouts for the days you were absent. • Copy any notes missed during your absence. • Schedule an appointment to make up any tests or quizzes within 2 days. You must take them within the appropriate time (1:1 ratio). You will receive a zero for the test or quiz that is not made up. Make up work is your personal responsibility!
¡Bien hecho! • When you do a good job in Spanish class you could receive: • Warrior rewards • Positive phone calls or emails home • Oral praise
Dis-R-E-S-P-E-C-T…a BIG “NO, NO”… • To Señorita Woeste • To the Spanish language • To classmates • To yourself Consequences will be given to those who show disrespect.
