Educational Philosophy: My educational philosophy is one of the interaction based on lectures, communicative and writing activities, and examinations. My goal is to lead the students to the knowledge and practice of the target language. For this reason, I will encorage the students to make use of the Spanish language during class time and I will make use of different materials and activities that will help the students to have a better understanding of the Spanish language.
Learning Outcomes: Core Learning Outcomes
All Park University courses include a formal assessment strategy that measures mastery of the course’s Learning Outcomes. The core assessment instrument for SP295 is the Final Exam, comprising a reading, analytical questions, an outline for an essay and the essay itself.

30%Homework (short compostions)
10% Participacion en clase
30% Final Paper
100 - 90 = A
89 - 80 = B
79 - 70 = C
69 - 60 = D
59 - 0 = F
Late Submission of Course Materials: No late homework will be accepted.
Classroom Rules of Conduct: Attend class and be prompt. Class attendance is part of class participation, which is a portion of your grade. Roll will be checked at the beginning of each class period. Since tardy entry to a class disrupts the class, your lateness for class will receive a reduction in points at the end of the semester. Two tardies = 1 absence. You are tardy if the instructor has started class.
2. Be prepared for class. This means that you have read the assigned materials and are prepared to discuss them. This course will consist of class discussion, small group discussion, group work, and lecture.
3. Mutual respect and support of your classroom colleagues and instructor is essential.
4. No cell phones/electronic devices during class time.
