French Grade Update & News
le 6 septembre - Fall 2016
Grades were updated.
The verb "être" (again)
conjugations by heart.
Important grammar terms:
infinitive = unconjugated form of the verb; être is the infinitive of to be.
to conjugate = to make the verb agree with its subject
The following site should help you in addition to what is in your French course content:
Site 1 (with pronunciations and practice)
Definite vs. Indefinite Articles in French
I also review definite and indefinite articles in one of the synchronous session recordings you find in the user links widget of your French course.
Labor Day is over - Time to remind that GaVS has no Fall Break. See below.
READ all information sent to you and assignment directions carefully!
USE FireFox Mozilla as your web browser.
DO NOT skip pages and practice activities in the content. I can tell what you have looked at and how long you have spent working in your course. As you can imagine, students who have the lowest grades, spend the least amount of time working in the course. The first modules are extremely important. Languages are a progression much like math. If you miss what is being presented now, the rest of the course will be very difficult. Assignments are assessments, so it is supposed to be your best work! I cannot allow students to resubmit assignments! Please don’t hesitate to contact me for help.
LOG IN and check GaVS email daily.
FOLLOW the daily pacing guide/course schedule. Students who wait until a few days before the deadline do not have enough time to work through the content and to contact me for help. To procrastinate is the most detrimental thing you can do in an online class!
TURN in the “Syllabus Acknowledgement” form if you have not yet done so! The dropbox for it is under “Dropboxes." Take a look at this information to help.
DO NOT use online translators! They are are easy to spot and are against GaVS World Languages Honor code. Offenses will be reported to school and parents!
READ the feedback I leave for your assignments and quizzes.
CONTACT me anytime you have a question or need help!
