TRANSLATORS are never to be used (class work OR homework).  If it is determined by the teacher that a translator has been used to complete any assignment(s), there will be an automatic 20 point deduction on the assignment(s).

 

TOPICS COVERED:  Review of

French I and introduction of past tense verbs, extended vocabulary, intermediate oral and written translation tasks, continued culture study of French speaking countries, more creative work in writing and speaking in a variety of everyday situations in French, and reading, listening and comprehension activities at an intermediate level are covered in this course. Vocabulary themes include holiday celebrations, getting ready for an event and clothing, shopping, and current events. 

 

Grading:  The grades will be scored according to the following:

           

Daily/homework            10%  

Quiz/lab                         30%

Test/essay/project         40%

Final Exam                     20%

 

Formative Grades:  We will usually have 2 to 4 quizzes in each chapter which are formative in nature.  Other formative grades will reflect the amount of effort each student is making to complete instructional tasks, and these assignments will usually involve written or verbal feedback.  It is crucial that you practice as much as possible out loud!  The more you practice, the better you will be!

 

Summative Grades: Projects will be made at least once per chapter (two per unit).  These assignments are designed to reflect mastery of the concepts studied in each chapter.  Some examples of these assignments are: skits, posters, letters, and oral presentations.  Tests will be given at the end of each chapter.

 

Tutoring Days:  I am available Wednesday afternoons or by appointment.

 

Re-Testing Foreign Language Policy: If a student desires to re-take a quiz or test, he/she must do the following:

  • Attend at least one tutoring session within one week of the grade being posted in PowerSchool
  • Schedule a time with the teacher to return to take an alternate version of the quiz or test.

 

Supplies Needed: A folder or a notebook with pockets to keep your papers, pens or pencils.
