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 he/she will have interaction with the teacher and can ask questions. I am teaching an RLC today, Monday, March 20 @ 8pm. (I have notified all students via text or email that I am teaching my RLC for Unit 5 tonight.) 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.

CULTURE CAFE FOR EXTRA CREDIT

Students have several upcoming Culture Cafe sessions they can attend in the next few weeks. Students can go to their Home page on Canvas and click on the icon, The Culture Cafe for a detailed lists 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

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.)

WHY NOT BE A PARENT OBSERVER IN YOUR STUDENT'S SPANISH 3 CLASS IN CANVAS?

Would you like to see how your student is doing in our class? Please read the info below and sign up to be an observer in our class. (I cannot put you in our class as an observer as you need your student's login info and I do not have that info.)


Parents and facilitators can now download the Canvas Parent app in both the iTunes and Google Play stores


Parents and facilitators will need student login information to set up their parent accounts. This will have to come from the school. NCVPS cannot supply login credentials to parents or facilitators. Check with your school's e-learning advisor (ELA).


The Canvas Parent app is designed to provide visibility into a student's progress at a glance. Canvas Parent allows both parents and facilitators to:

  • View assignment descriptions and due dates
  • Set reminders for assignments
  • View assignment grades
  • View course grades
  • Set grade alerts
  • View course announcements

Parents and facilitators can also use the Parent Portal online. Directions on how to use the portal are here.
