All ETAs for Spanish classes are on Tuesday October 15th. This first ETA consists of 25 multiple choice Scantron questions and 27 multiple choice listening items dealing with vocabulary and conversations.
Hola padres y familia,
this week we started working with an online resource I consider to be valuable. It provides an extra opportunity for practice and immediate feedback to your student. Although not required for the activity, a valid email address is strongly recommended for convenience. Do not fret, it should not send any spam. There is an option to change this when signing up. Each class hour has a specific designation of activities to complete while in the computer lab.
The website is www.studyspanish.com and the unique teacher ID your student will need to input is A5YQ55Y8. Case should not matter. We will be using this resource during class time throughout the year. If any questions arise regarding this, please feel free to contact me. Thanks and enjoy your weekend!!
Welcome to another school year in the foreign language department! I’m muy excited for this school year. We shall be extremely busy with learning language, culture, and customs of Spanish speaking people. It’s tough, but daily practice is essential. You can do it!!
Any desire to contact me can be done through email or by calling the high school office. Please allow me adequate time to respond. Our staff members have new emails this year as well, of which mine is firstname.lastname@example.org. Above all, enjoy the fresh year!
Hola a todos,
It’s been quite an interesting year. Today is the seniors’ last day, quizzes, tests, and projects galore, and time to recognize those who have made an extraordinary effort.
This year, there will be a Spanish award for 1 senior and junior male and female (4 collectively) for outstanding achievement. This will be based largely on grade, attitude in the class, and longevity in the class.
The end of the year for Spanish classes will bring tests and quizzes to complete. Next week, all classes will be assessed on their final unit of the year. We will be reviewing for that assessment and then for their ETA.
The ETA in Spanish class will consist of a listening exercise, a Scantron assessment of grammar and vocabulary, and an extensive final project in which speaking and writing are involved. This will all take place after the Memorial day weekend.
Until then, enjoy this great weather we’ve been having!!
The GPHS Scholastic Bowl’s final record for the spring 2013 season is 5-6-1. Emily Bryant answered a total of 29 tossups throughout the season, Raelynn Parmely – 13, Nick Plakas – 1, Taryn Jensen – 2, Tanner Barrera – 6, Lucas Castelli – 2, and Veronica Inglis – 1. Dimitri Piperas was able to help the Dragons with bonus questions. They are looking forward to the RVC tournament in St. Anne on Saturday, February 16th, and a select few will be attending Match Points competition at KCC on Friday, February 22nd. The regional area tournament is on Monday March 4th at a TBA location.
The GPHS Dragon Scholastic Bowl Team is on the path to a great season. Their current record is 5 wins, 2 losses, and 1 tie. More information will follow regarding standing and high scores. They have 2 more season matches, RVC tournament, match points, and regional. Congratulations to all of them and good luck!
Hola a todos.
As the first semester somes to an end, it is fitting that some changes be made. I will be now detailing some of these changes that are necessary to the success of every student.
First and foremost, more Spanish will be used in the classroom every day by both the instructor(s) and the students. This will be in the form of exercises, drills, and every day administrative items. It will be gradual, but necessary.
Another change that is happenening is the gradual implementation of a student teacher, Srta. Norman. She will begin with teaching the upper levels, then working down to the beginning level. She will be the teacher for every class for approximately 7 weeks total. I will still be available for questions and will be individually contacting parents (along with Srta. Norman) on your child’s progress and anything else that may help him or her to succeed in learning the language.
More changes may arise, but are necessary to meet the rigorous demands place upon them by the workplace, many colleges and universities. Vamos a aprender mucho.
Hola a todos!
Just a short cartita from your maestro.
All classes should expect a vocabulary quiz and a test in the days prior to Thanksgiving break.
Spanish 3 and 4 are also finishing up skits and house drawings as well.
Check back for more updates!!
