I'm excited for this upcoming semester and the opportunity to work with you/your student to help him/her grow more proficient in the Spanish language, improve his/her cultural competence and global understanding!

This past week (Week 1) we were working on the Getting Started Unit where students work on assignments and learn how to navigate through CANVAS. Please encourage your student to get started in the class as soon as possible. Students are expected to work in the class, Monday-Friday, for approximately 90 minutes to 2 hours.
This week (Week 2) we will be working on Unit 1, a review of Spanish 1 and 2. Here is the list of assignments for this past week and next week.
Spanish Late Work Guidelines
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

COMPLETING ASSIGNMENTS AND WORKING AHEAD IN THE CLASS!
WHAT IS AN RLC (REQUIRED LIVE CLASS)?
Throughout the course, students will be responsible for attending one live class per unit (for a total of 10 live classes). Students will be given several options of sessions for each unit with a variety of teachers, so that he/she can choose which ones best fit his/her schedule. When students click on the assignment for the RLCs, they will find the calendar for all the RLCs. In addition, I include the calendar each day in my announcements.
Students need to make sure that he/she puts first and last name when entering the session. Attendance is taken for the session and there is an assignment to complete after attending the session. Each session lasts about an hour.
Students will attend a total of 10 sessions during the semester.
- Getting Started
- Unit 1
- Unit 2

I strongly encourage students to attend the Required Live Classes (RLC), but if a student is unable to attend one of the Required Live Classes, I will include the link to my recorded RLC in my announcements after the last RLC is completed for the Unit.
Below is a schedule for this past week's calendar for the RLC's for Getting Started and also for this week, Unit 1.
