Hello everyone. I hope you and your family are doing good. Today starts a new chapter in public education. There is a huge learning curve that students and teachers will be navigating together. As we potencially move closer to embarking on this called "remote teaching" Some ar about to navigate unchartered waters with little, to no, preparation. We are figuring this out as they go. Please be patient.
I have reminded my students that they are not allowed to leave the Canvas page during any quiz or test for any reason. They have been informed that leaving the site during a quiz/test is considered cheating. If they leave the page at any time during the test or quiz they will receive a Zero (0) grade.
I’m looking forward to getting to know you this year, as we learn about the Spanish language and the countries where it is spoken. By the end of this semester, you will be able to have conversations about a variety of topics completely in Spanish. Additionally, you’ll learn about the geography and customs of Spanish-speaking countries. In just the first month, we will be learning about:
Chapters and materials to be covered in the course:
Para empezar: greetings; introductions; leave-taking; numbers; time; body parts; classroom; date; asking for help; weather, and seasons
