Classroom Rules of Conduct:
CLASS PARTICIPATION: Learning requires your active involvement. Involvement is possible only when you have prepared your assigned materials carefully. Therefore, attendance and class participation are obligatory for all class meetings. Your class participation grade will be determined by daily attendance, preparation for class and by your active role in class meetings. Active participation means consistently speaking Spanish in the classroom, contributing significantly to group work, and volunteering as much as possible without dominating the class
PREPARATION FOR CLASS: Students are expected to prepare for class before coming to class. Language acquisition is a skill you must practice daily. Students are always welcome and advised to discuss any question related to the language and course material during an arranged appointment.
