Cowger, Carrie (Spanish, Yoga)

Here is the grade situation for both dual enrollment students and non-dual enrollment students:

Dual enrollment students:

If you are in dual enrollment you will be receiving two different grades this semester, one that will go on your high school transcript and one that I will submit to CCC for your SPA 102 grade.  The two grades have the potential to be different since NPA is implementing  a more participation based system of grading and dual enrollment is requiring a traditional grading system.  For example, you could earn an A this semester at NPA, but a B for your college transcript.This is dependent on the quality and accuracy of work you are turning in to me.  So in other words, you still need to work hard to earn your dual enrollment grade.     

I have just entered grades into the grade book online so you can now see them on FamilyLink. The grade entered is your dual enrollment grade.  Since there is only one grade book, I have to do it this way.  Whichever grade is higher at the end of the school year, dual enrollment or NPA, will be the grade submitted to NPA. At  the end of the semester your NPA grade will not be lower than your quarter three grade even though it may look like that in FamilyLink right now because what is currently entered in your dual enrollment grade. 

Non-dual enrollment students:

To the 12 of you not enrolled in dual enrollment,  I am grading your work just like normal. You turn in work to me and I grade it on accuracy and quality.. If at the end of the semester this ends up bringing your grade down to below your quarter three grade, I will adjust it. In the end you will not receive a grade lower than your quarter three grade.  If you participate fully, then you will see a slight increase in your grade in the end. Unfortunately we only have one grade book for Spanish class and 80% of my students are enrolled in dual enrollment, so this is how I have to do the grading. In summary,  it could look like your grade is going down, but it really isn’t. amigos.   Here are the Google classroom codes you need to join my classes.  Please make sure you sign up for the right period. Also, if you want to join my yoga class even if you are not in yoga, you may.  It could bring some peace and keep you active in these strange times.

In summary,  it could look like your grade is going down, but it really isn’t. By the end of Spanish III students should be able to communicate at the intermediate level, using present, future, and past tense verbs along with the imperative mood and common phrases and vocabulary. This course is designed to develop all five language skills: listening, speaking, reading, writing and cultural competence through authentic materials and those that are designed for second language learners.  The goal of the course is to help students develop the ability to communicate in Spanish, while at the same time furthering their knowledge of Hispanic culture. A strong emphasis is placed on using the language in practical situations, while also helping further their understanding of Spanish grammatical rules, word order, and word formation.  Students will increase their levels of proficiency via the everyday use of the target language. By continuous practice of the target language it is expected that students will be able to spontaneously create with the language, initiate, sustain and close intermediate level exchanges, ask and answer questions, and possess the skills necessary of circumlocution when faced with a more difficult communicative task. Additionally, students will be able to meet intermediate level practical writing needs by creating compositions, short narratives, and summaries.
