  • Will there be an EOC for the course? No, you will not have an EOC but you will have a Final Exam.
  • What is your make-up/ retake policy for assignments?

If you are absent, the school policy applies to daily work and make-up work. Please understand that the course does move at a fast pace and it is best to turn in/make-up assignments as soon as possible. If you are absent on the day of a project, you must make sure that the project is turned in by the due date (If the project is to be presented in class, it is due the day you return to class.). If you are absent on the day of a quiz/test, you will be responsible for making up that quiz/test the day you return.

You will be able to retake a failed Test, and earn up to an 80, but you must retake the quiz before or after school. There will be NO test corrections. Be sure to study and prepare for your tests ahead of time.

  • Is there an online resource that goes with the book? Please enroll in the online course through VHLCentral.com (you should already have an account set up from Spanish I). If you have never set up an account, you will need to do that first. If you already have an account, you will just need to sign up for the course. Be sure to click on the Descubre 1 book and enroll in the course titled “SP II 3rd or SP II 4th ” based off the class period. You will be responsible for completing online activities on your own time. These assignments will count as 2 Daily Grades (10%). Your grade will be based on completion of activities.

 

  • What is the cell-phone policy for the class? You should not have your phone out during instructional time, unless you are instructed to do so. You will also not be able to use your phones on quizzes or tests. During tests, you will be instructed to put your phone on the desk, face down. If you touch your phone during a quiz or test, you will be assumed cheating and will receive a zero on the assignment along with a formal office referral.

 

1st offense- warning

2nd offense- call home

3rd offense- detention

4th offense- Discipline referral

 

  • What is the general curriculum plan per unit?

Each unit is divided into two parts: part A and B. You will generally have a Formative Vocab and Grammar Quiz (10%), Open-Note Quiz (20%), Project (20%) and  2 Unit Tests (55%).
