Homework plays an important role in Spanish class as it provides students with an opportunity to practice the skills they have learned in class. Homework is expected to be neatly done and completed on time. If the homework is not completed on time, a grade of 64% will be given. Late work will only be accepted one day late and will be averaged with the 64%. A grade of 0 will be given for any assignment more than one day late. Final grades are based on an accumulation of points given for quizzes, tests, homework, in class assignments, listening activities, group work, and projects.
