Teacher News:

3rd, 4th, and 5th grade scholars will participate in the teacher directed, online Spanish language learning program, Calico Spanish. They will be introduced to Spanish vocabulary through engaging video stories, music videos, and dialogue. Students will be encouraged to use the newly acquired vocabulary in class by interacting with their peers and completing activities in class.

Scholars will given an S, N, or U based on classroom participation in the program. 

 

 

6th, 7th and 8th grade scholars will participate in the online Spanish language learning program, Duolingo.  By building the Spanish vocabulary of BCA's middle school scholars, our goal is to give them a firm base to build upon when they enter traditional high school Spanish classes. The program allows the teacher to assign lessons and monitor progress of students on an individual basis.  Students will have daily written assignments to accompany the online lessons.  Those written assignments will be the basis for in class quizzes.  

Letter grades will be reported on progress reports and report cards based on 5 or more assignments throughout the nine weeks.

Scholars are given one personal set of earbuds (with a microphone attached) in order to complete assignments.  This is a requirement for participation in the class.  Earbuds are individually labeled and stored in the classroom.  If that set is lost, students may use earbuds brought from home as long as they meet the requirement of having an attached microphone.  If they chose to do so, scholars will be responsible for those.

Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns at jbrunet@bcacharter.org or by calling the BCA front office.  Phone calls will be returned during my planning period which differs from day to day.
