Welcome to the 2019/2020 French 1 and Spanish 1 classes at BMS!!
This year foreign language classes will use a virtual version of the new textbooks, the digital version of the new edition will be available to each student. During class students will use computers and Ipad to access online activities and quizzes. I will have one classroom set of textbooks for all students to use if needs be. The first week of school I will set up your child with an account for Realidades 1 or Bien dit 1. To supplement I also have set up classes on Schoology.com for students to practice listening, speaking and responding.Assignments,turorials, tests and study guide will be posted for your convenience. It is crucial for your child academic success to be able to practice on a daily basis, if you do not have a computer and/ or internet access at home, the assignments need to be completed during regular class time, AA, or early in the morning. Each week students will be assess on their ability to read /understand or to write /spell or to speak/respond. For quiz on comprehension and speaking evaluation mispelling is not penalized. However for a quiz on writing and spelling, mistakes will be deducted form the total score. I try to be as fair and rigorous as possible, however taking a high school credit bearing class in middle school is a privilege, students in my classes are held to higher standards. If you child think the class might be to demanding, they will only be allowed to drop it the first week of school. As we are preparing our students to be digitally literate and responsible, it is important to keep track of various login user names and passwords to access those sites, I will post the general log on this school webpage. if your child is absent for an extended period of time due to illness, vacation or snow days, please check schoology. I am happy to welcome new students to my classes, I know I t will be a very busy and exciting year so to all BIENVENIDO,BIENVENUE!
