MAKE UP WORK
Spanish assignments may change based on what is actually accomplished during a particular class period or on level of observed student mastery.   If a student is absent please email me at the above email address to obtain that particular assignment and any other necessary information.


SKYWARD 
When checking grades on Skyward if a "*" appears where the grade should be, it would indicate that I have not yet entered grades for that particular task.  If a zero ("0") is entered, that would indicate that the student has not turned in that assignment or completed that assessment.  Sometimes a zero ("0") will be entered for a student who has turned in an assignment which is perhaps considered unacceptable work.  In this case, there will be a comment which reads "REDO FOR CREDIT".  This would indicate that the student should rewrite the assignment and turn it in the following day.  I would not be considered a late assignment.  Late work is counted at 50% if completed in an acceptable manner.

Assignment Guidelines

If it is determined that you are doing this, lesser credit (to be determined) will be awarded.
 
 
2)  Complete each assignment by the beginning of the next class unless otherwise specified.
 
Remember:  Assignments will be randomly collected and graded for accuracy.
 
 
3)  If you do not understand something on the assignment, DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT CLASS PERIOD!  Come see me beforehand.
 
 
4)  Late assignments will be counted as 50%.  This means handing in papers promptly.  Note:  You have two weeks to turn in a late assignment.
 
 
5)  If you are absent from class you need to make up any assignment missed.  If it is a collected assignment you have one week to turn that assignment in.  Thereafter it will be counted as 50% when handed in.
 
 
6)  Feel free to stop in during the day if you have questions.  This could be before and after school or at the end of class periods.
 
Note:  anyone who shares their work to be copied is also violation of this assignment policy.

The History of Spain through its Art
 
This unit contemplates the changes in history beginning in the fifteenth century through the twentieth century as viewed through the artwork of its Spanish masters.
 
Learning from the following masters Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco), Diego Rodríguez de Silva y Velázquez, Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Pablo Ruiz Picasso and Salvador Dalí discussions will cover the invention of the printing press, the Reformation and Contra-Reformation, the hierarchies in society at that time (the Aristocracy , the Catholic Church and the Royal Families), wars and poverty, treatment of people seen as “less human” due to race, standard of living or disability, industrialization and modernization and technology.
 
 
The following dates list important elements of history and time period of each artist.
 
Fechas
 
1400-1600   El mercantilismo, el comercialismo, dinero, crédito
 
1400-1468         La Biblia de Johann Gutenberg, Mainz, Alemania.

1483-1546      Martin Lutero.  1517 publicación de su Noventa y Cinco Tesises.  1521 traduzó la Biblia desde greciano al alemán.
 
                    El principio de La Reforma ...y La Contrareforma.

For each artist students will view a variety of their respective works via powerpoint presentations.  Students will learn about the life of each artists and influences which impacted their art.  Later students will need to identify the works by name and respond to essay questions based on the artist’s life and works.
 
In addition to necessary vocabulary needed to discuss these topics students will learn how to critique a work of art within the following four-step analysis.
 
1)  Description.
2)  Analysis.
3)  Interpretation
4)  Evaluation.
 
For each artist students will choose and critique one of the artist’s works.  This will be completed as an oral in class presentation.  One of the presentations will be given in class with non-Spanish speaking guests.  Partner students will act as interpreters for the presenter.
 
Extensive time is given to understanding the many works and time periods of Pablo Picasso, unquestionably the most important modern artist.  Students are not exposed to his works until they have an extensive and thorough knowledge of his predecessors most of whom have had direct influence on his artwork.  Because the titles of the Picasso works are in French, students will gain a feel for the French language through basic translations from French to Spanish.  Due to the extensive output of works by Picasso and those viewed in class, students will be assessed on recognizing the time period of the work and not the work by name.
 
The unit culminates with a field trip to the Minneapolis Institute of Arts where students will view in person original works of Domenikos Theotokopoulos (El Greco), Bartolomé Esteban Murillo, Francisco de Goya y Lucientes, Pablo Ruiz Picasso and Salvador Dalí.

Getting Help for Spanish

I am usually here by 7:10 am each morning.
 
Note:  The door is usually closed, simply come in quietly.
Assignment Guidelines
 
 
 
1)  Do your own work.  It is not acceptable to “work together” on homework and come up with “group answers”.
 
If it is determined that you are doing this, lesser credit (to be determined) will be awarded.
 
 
2)  Complete each assignment by the beginning of the next class unless otherwise specified.
 
Remember:  Assignments will be randomly collected and graded for accuracy.
 
 
3)  If you do not understand something on the assignment, DO NOT WAIT UNTIL THE NEXT CLASS PERIOD!  Come see me beforehand.
 
 
4)  Late assignments will be counted as 50%.  This means handing in papers promptly.  Note:  You have two weeks to turn in a late assignment.
 
 
5)  If you are absent from class you need to make up any assignment missed.  If it is a collected assignment you have one week to turn that assignment in.  Thereafter it will be counted as 50% when handed in.
 
 
6)  Feel free to stop in during the day if you have questions.  This could be before and after school or at the end of class periods.
 
Note:  anyone who shares their work to be copied is also violation of this assignment policy.
 
  
Language Learner Goals
 
Primary Goals
The national standards set forth the five interrelated goals for language learning: communication, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities.  These are the same goals and objectives that we believe serve well as a model for Minnesota districts in setting local World Language standards
