Please review the FAQs and contact us if you find a problem.

Credits: 1

Recommended: 10, 11

Prerequisite: Spanish 2

Test Prep: CLEP Spanish  (You should finish all your years of Spanish study first before taking it.)

Course Description: Students will grow in their ability to speak, write, read and listen and understand Spanish. Students will study vocabulary, grammar and culture while working on these skills. Grammar covered in this course includes: preterit, imperfect, regular and irregular forms, present, future, direct object and indirect object pronouns, and correct usage.

This is course is two in one. It’s based on GVL’s Spanish 3 course. The vocabulary and many activities come from there. Interspersed is a grammar course based on John Turner’s All the Spanish Grammar You Really Need to Know. When you aren’t receiving a score for something, use it as a learning opportunity. You may not know all the answers (so I didn’t have you score it), but you can learn from your mistakes and come away knowing all the answers.

You should get in the habit of reading over your vocabulary each day before you start your lesson. You should get in the habit as well of writing out your vocabulary and writing out verb conjugations and such. It’s one thing to think a word, it’s another to actually produce it.

Hay que tener un pasaporte y tu billete pero no hay tanta seguridad y hay muchos baños y opciones para la comida en un tren. Los trenes llegan a tiempo también. Puedes tener una gran vista en cada asiento y hablar con otros pasajeros. Normalmente visito un kiosco y compro una revista o un libro para leer antes de ir.   Descanso y tomo un café. ¡Es una gran manera para viajar!” (from http://cms.gavirtualschool.org/Shared/WorldLanguage/SpanishIII/SP3_Viajemos_SOFTCHALK/index.html)

STOP

Time for a report card and portfolio/records updating.

Portfolio/records: In your portfolio you should include a couple of your assignments from this quarter. You could also take a screen shots of different quizzes/exercises. Keep your written work. Choose things that are neat and well kept.

This is how you find your grade: add up all the grades you have been recording for this quarter. Add up your scores and write that number down.

Divide your score by total possible.  Move the decimal point over two places to the right. In the next box over, write the number in front of the decimal (something between 1 and 100). This is your percent grade. In the next box over write your letter grade. Anything starting with a 9 is an A. Anything starting with an 8 is a B. Anything starting with a 7 is a C and so forth. If you have everything perfect, then your grade is 100. That’s an A too.

Your goal is to get an A for the course at the end of the year. Go back and look at where you lost points. What can you do to avoid losing those points in the next quarter?
