Middle Level SPANISH Elective

Middle Level Elective course is changing this year.  

In addition to whole-group instruction, we are addding a component of independent study called Qtalk.    Students will take notes on the vocabulary lessons and receive participation points each day for staying ontask and participating in whole-group activities.  This "blended learning" will allow students to work at their own pace and level but also conncect to review geography and basic skills.  Another great feature of Qtalk is that students who are absent or leaving early for athletics will be able to "make up" work online when they are able.  All written assessments will be kept in the classroom in a PORTFOLIO to be shared during conferences at the end of the quarter.  Parents are welcome to come view them at ANY time!  Grades will be updated weekly on the district intranet. :)
