NCVPS Spanish 3
Update con la Sra. Beverly Aguirre
Week 5, February 26 - March 4
We are starting Week 5! As we start Week 5, we begin a new unit, Unit 3, La Salud (Health). Just a reminder that as we continue to go through the semester, all units are now 2 weeks, with specific assignments being due each week. Students only have to attend one RLC every two weeks, but are encouraged to attend more than one per unit if they want to. Students should have finished all assignments for Unit 2 this past Friday evening, February 23. Please speak with your student and make sure he/she has completed all assignments for Unit 2, especially Unit 2 project, and is ready to start Unit 3. Below is a list of what is due by this Friday, March 2. Students have 4 assignments to complete this week.
Required Live Classes for Unit 3
Students have 3 opportunities to attend an RLC for Unit 3 this week and 3 next week. Please help your student plan accordingly and put an RLC for Unit 3 this week (or next) in his/her agenda. I will be teaching my RLC tonight, Monday, February 26 @ 8pm. If a student is unable to attend an RLC, the link to my recorded RLC session will be available after the last live RLC.
More opportunities to attend a Culture Cafe for Extra Credit!
Below is a list of the various Culture Cafe sessions offered for students this week. Students can go to their Home page on Canvas and click on the icon, The Culture Cafe for a detailed list of future Culture Cafe sessions and how to log into the session. After attending a Culture Cafe session, students will complete a reflection about the class and submit it for extra credit.
Keys to Student Success (clipartxtras.com)
The main keys to being successful are:
- completing all assignments (*well and on time*) (using the Schedule of Assignments), reading the announcements 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 tutor 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! Sessions will be offered in October.
