Looking Ahead...

This week you should look at the course schedule to make sure you are on track. If you are in a Blackboard course, it is located under the Orientation tab. This week is week 3. If you are in app.middleburyinteractive.com, you can use the course calendar to see your assignments and pacing guide.

Un poco de cultura...

February 14th is Dia de San Valentin or Dia del Amor y la Amistad (Day of Love and Friendship) in Spanish-speaking countries. There are two ways to say "I love you" in Spanish. "Te amo" is more of a romantic, poetic love and "te quiero" can be used for friends or romantic interests. Want to learn more Valentine's Day phrases in Spanish? Check out the link below!

Buen Trabajo

The student of the week is Grayson Waits! Wow! Grayson has been working really hard to complete the assignments and getting good grades. Way to go! I just want to praise everyone who is working steadily to complete the lessons and assignments on time. I appreciate all of your hard work and will make every effort to give timely feedback. If you have fallen behind, don't get discouraged, a little effort every day can catch you up quickly. Email me if you need suggestions on time management. You are all doing great!

Don't forget!

We have had problems with Blackboard not notifying me when your assignments are ready to grade as well as not showing assignments that you have completed already in gradebook.

Please email me as soon as you notice a missing grade/assignment and tell me the name of the assignment so I can locate the grades.

A Note About Pacing...

We are basically covering one unit a week, which is a very brisk pace. Don't fall behind! One or two lessons are scheduled each day. Email me with questions or concerns.
