  • Homework…and it is NIGHTLY!!!
      • Students will keep a separate Spanish homework log. Please check your child’s log regularly to see if they are caught up with all of their assignments.
        • 5 points per assignment
        • Always due the next Spanish day, unless that day is a Wednesday
        • A “stamp” = complete, on time, and looks to be 80% correct
        • A signature = complete, but late
        • Nothing = I have not seen the assignment
        • Extra credit is given for completing all assignments on the log
  • Homework should not take hours to complete!
  • Homework directly correlates to student success!
wrac writing and reading across the curriculum
WRAC: Writing and Reading Across the Curriculum

I use the district foreign language equivalent of “6 Trait” standards in grading writing assignments:

  • Comprehensibility
  • Vocabulary
  • Language Control
  • Mechanics
  • Content
  • Writing pulls many concepts together, and makes the students better writers in English and Spanish!
quizzes and tests
Quizzes and Tests
  • Weekly tests and quizzes
  • Missed quizzes/tests must be made up within ONE WEEK of the quiz/test being given, or the student will receive a ZERO!!!
  • Midterm (late January/early February) and a Final Exam (last two weeks of school)
  • I do my best to get grades posted online in a timely manner !

Review for the TUHSD final exam for high school credit…
