Español 1/Spanish 1 Syllabus
Señorita Tishanna McClure
Cedartown High School
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This course is a beginning course of the Spanish language and Spanish/ Hispanic/Latino culture. The student will begin learning basic vocabulary and expressions in proper grammatical use. The student will expand their understanding, reading, writing, and speaking in heir native language to correlate with the Spanish language at the novice/intermediate proficiency level, (According to the Core Curriculum National/ACTFL Standards and the PSD Spanish 1 Curriculum).
TEXT: Textbooks will not be assigned but may be requested for further studying at home. Other texts may be used and outside readings may be required. Use of your iPad will be highly encouraged.
- Students will be expected to keep all class notes, worksheets, and tests to be used for studying purposes.
- Students will be expected to turn in all class work assigned on time. (With the use of technology I do not foresee many reasons to not turn in all work on time).
- Students are expected to make up all work missed during an absence from school. Use of the OLC is most necessary when absent. If you do not understand the assignment on the OLC it is the student’s responsibility to ask the teacher for the assignments at the appropriate time.
- Students are expected to be:
*****Responsible: on time to class, in your seat, prepared for class with a charged iPad, writing utensil, paper, notebook and book (if required).
*****Respectful: treat others as you would like to be treated, do not disrupt the teacher and/or fellow classmates
(Remember this is a learning environment).
*****Ready: come with a mind and attitude open to all cultures and a willingness to work hard.
Most failures are caused by lack of working-not lack of knowledge.
