As was stated in the course letters (available below at the post titled "Administrativa"), homework in Spanish generally falls into one of three categories. (1) Students have a specific project/assignment that requires time outside of class to prepare. (2) Students are studying a specific set of information (grammar, vocabulary, culture) in preparation for a quiz or test. (3) Students are doing something that allows them to practice the language for at least 20 minutes on average each day. The third option will be the most frequent and students can take that practice in a number of directions: reading an online article in Spanish, watching a half-hour of Spanish TV, practicing vocabulary with flashcards, writing a personal journal in Spanish.
Tutoring options will be available for students who want or need extra support. The Spanish Honor Society (students who have completed Spanish 3 or more) will offer tutoring under the supervision of their faculty adviser every Tuesday afternoon starting September 15. I am almost always available before school (I arrive by 6:45am) or after school (usually until at least 3:30) and students are welcome to email me ( at firstname.lastname@example.org) as well.
I have set up subscriptions through the texting program Remind that will let you receive occasional communications about things like when progress reports/report cards are issued, weather-related schedule changes, etc. Thanks to Remind, everyone's phone number/personal info stays private. Instructions for subscribing are in the post below this one.
