Extended Due Date for Units 1-4 assignments (Due October 28 @ 11:55pm)

We have extended the closing date for work in Weeks 2-7 (Units 1-4) until Friday, October 28 @ 11:55pm.

We are NOT extending the dates for the Getting Started Unit.

This means that students have until next Friday, October 28 @ 11:55pm to complete any assignments from Unit 1 through Unit 4 (lessons 1-5). I have sent an email/text to students about the extended due date.

We hope students do not use this as an excuse to NOT work on finishing up work in Units 1-4, ASAP. We want them to get those assignments completed and submitted and stay on pace with our class so as not to get behind!

Required Lived Classes for Unit 5

Students have 4 opportunities to attend an RLC for Unit 5 this week and 1 opportunity next week. Please encourage your student to look at the schedule and attend a live class as they will have interaction with the teacher and can ask questions. If your student is unable to attend an RLC for Unit 5, I will submit a recording of my session after the last RLC for Unit 5.

Below is information about the session this week.

Keys to Student Success

The main keys to being successful are:

  • completing all assignments (*well and on time*) (using the Schedule of Assignments), reading the announcements/learning block daily, checking/reading messages daily
  • going through the direct instruction and practice as slow as needed to understand the material
  • taking/studying notes, reviewing the grades/feedback for all assignments to see what was missed and why
  • attending the required live classes
  • asking questions when something doesn't make sense and/or more explanation/practice is needed

In addition, to me being available to teach the whole group in the RLC's, students can set up one-on-one tutoring sessions with me, as needed. NCVPS has a Peer Tutoring Center that is also available to students for Quick Questions, Virtual Buddies, and more. World Language and Culture Club sessions are also offered for extra credit! (See the Culture Cafe section of the course for more info.)
