Mexican Independence Day   

Each year we celebrate Mexican Independence day by learning about the holiday, learning popular songs related to celebration, and sampling homeade, alcohol free sangria. I personally mix the punch in a bowl guaranteeing its ingredients are fresh, and school age appropriate. Students love trying something new that perhaps they have never had the opportunity to try. As you can imagine, serving 160 students with this great learning opportunity is no small task, and requires funding that the school just cannot provide. We usually solicit donations from students by passing around a supply list and having students volunteer to bring in the necessities. This simulated cultural celebration requires fruit, juices, carbonated drinks, napkins, and cups. Please listen out for requests for these items soon! Your kids love love love these days as they are fun, provide a break from the routine, and are the types of lesson plans that make for wonderful lasting memories of their high school days in Spanish class!

Homework Policy : Real World Homework   

Homework in Spanish class will probably be different than your other classes. We will use homework to meet our standard of :

Georgia Performance Standard for Foreign Language Level I and II:

MLI.CCC1 The student uses information acquired in the study of the target language and information acquired in other subject areas to reinforce one another;

MLI.CU1  The student develops an awareness of perspectives, practices, and products of the cultures where the language is spoken. 

Homework is NOT to be done in class. These are assignments you will be expected to complete on your own outside of class.

By exploring the Spanish language outside of the classroom and in the "Real World",  you will get to experience Spanish live and "in action", used everyday by real people in real situations out in the community. I hope that you will find these assignments interesting, fun, and relevant. 

If you lose your homework sheet, you may print off another one from this website. I will not provide duplicate homework sheets. 

In this class you WILL have homework assignments for each unit. However, you will be given a wide variety of choices and may choose the types of assignments you would like to complete. You will have the entire length of the unit to do the homework at your leisure. At the conclusion of the unit, you will receive a homework grade along with your unit Test grade. If, at the end of the unit, you have failed to complete the required number of homework opportunities, your homework grade will reflect this deficit.
