Student behavior will be addressed on an individual basis and teacher discretion will be used. See LBCS student handbook for complete discipline policy.
Grading will be based on:
Observation and Participation in class/classwork- (30%)
(This an extremely important aspect for language acquisition)
Projects and Assessments (70%)
Achievement level through IB Criterion and Language Phase growth will also be assessed.
(Aries will be updated periodically according to class rotations)
Homework: will be assigned on an as needed basis, but will mostly consist of oral rehearsals and practicing good study habits.
How to help as a parent even when you do not speak this second language:
*Ask your student to describe what he/she did in class (they may not be ready to say it all in Spanish, but just having them replay the activity helps their brain process and integrate what they learned)
*Encourage daily participation in class (it is most important they engage and are active in their learning)
*Expose them to Spanish music, television and cultural activities. If it’s important to you, it will be important to them!
