38 The purpose of evaluation is to determine whether you have achieved mastery of specific skills in the language. Written quizzes and tests will be given regularly. Quizzes are worth fewer points than tests and are meant to assess a smaller set of material. Tests will be given once per unit. 38
39 Participation and attendance are crucial. In order to become fluent in Spanish students will need to hear it, read it, write it and speak it frequently. Therefore, if the student is not in class or does not actively and positively participate in class they will not be successful at mastering these tasks. Participation is a big part of the grading process. The participation grade includes: non-collected homework, class work, in class performance, punctuality, preparation and discipline. 39
40 We will be using technology a lot for this class. If a student does not have computer / internet access he/she must use the computers in the classroom or media center before or after school, or during YMCA. These are the sites that we will be using most frequently and we might add some as the year progresses. Students are to keep all usernames and passwords in a secure location so that they can successfully complete all assignments and have the information needed in order to be successful in Spanish class. Each one of these sites will be explored in class and students will be instructed on how to navigate them. 40
41 Parents: Please keep your child s usernames & passwords handy. The students will be asked to keep track of their usernames & passwords in their planners since I will not have access to all usernames & passwords. 41
42 We will be using as our main portal. Important links as well calendar updates will be posted. It will NOT replace Edmodo for classroom content. 42
43 We will be using https://ocps.edmodo.com/for Homework, projects, extra materials, thematic units, group collaboration and due date reminders. Students will need to access Edmodo on a regular basis in order to be informed and reminded of upcoming due dates and information pertaining to the class. While students can post to each other in the classroom wall only those registered in that particular class have access. Students can private message the teacher but NOT each other. Parents can also request a login that is linked to their child s account. Parents will only be able to see their child s grades and assignments. They will NOT have access to the class pages or folders. 43
44 We will be using edu.glogster.com to do several assignments. Students will have their own accounts and may use it for other classes as well. They will need my teacher code in order to be linked to my account. 44
45 We will be using as a test / quiz site. They will need my teacher code in order to be linked to my account. 45
46 We will be using book_home.htm?state=fl in order to follow with textbook activities. These include: culture, conjuguemos, animated grammar, home tutor, online review and downloads. Students will need to results and take screenshots of these exercises in order to receive credit. 46

48 We will be using to create videos. Each student needs to create their own account from home. They will need to register with an . I will not have access to their personal account, but they can share the videos with me or the class. These videos will be used to assess comprehension of concepts as well as pronunciation. 48
49 We will be using to create writing prompts. Students will get accounts from me. 49
50 Students will also be given the choice to use the following sites to do projects / assignments. The students will need to create their own accounts and I will not have access to those accounts. They will need to send links to their work when they turn them in.
