Andrew Noelle, Spanish 2 and 3, AP Spanish Literature, Introduction to Linguistics

  ¡Bienvenido!
Updated: 10/26/2021
 
Fall is here and 2nd Quarter is in full swing! Class is going well as we do some meaningful activities and we interact with each other in Spanish!
 
PARENT/TEACHER CONFERENCES are on October 21st from 3:00-6:00. You may schedule an in-person conference (with a mask) or virtual meeting through Zoom. Please email me at noellea@rcschools.net to set up a conference, if desired.  
 
 
Please check your grades on Skyward to ensure that you have everything completed to your liking. IF YOU COMPLETE SOMETHING LATE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW. If I don't know you complete it, I can't grade it.
 
If you need assistance with your login information, visit or call our attendance offic(ext. 23307). You can access your Office 365 account by clicking here. The username and password are the same as your computer login at school.
 
If you need some help with Spanish, sign up for a tutoring session with an upper-level Spanish student by using this link: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/20f0d44a8aa2dabf94-spanish1
 
Our Library is ¡maravilloso!  They have created a "Spanish Language Collection" of items available to check out in the target language --SPANISH! I am so excited to see you all use this to make us the best we can be! Check out the link here

Grades will be shown in Skyward on a range from 0-5, and each item listed pertains to a different category that makes up the Unit Grade. If there is at least a 3 for each item of each category for the Unit, then the student has an A (97%). If not, then the student has a B (89%) or C (80%), depending on how many and how low the grades are. Here is a table that explains what the numbers represent. 
In short, Contract Grading benefits the student because it rewards the learning process rather than penalizes for mistakes. It greatly reduces stress and anxiety, and the students can focus on learning rather than on points or a final grade. If you have questions, please email me!
