DESCRIPCIÓN DEL CURSO
Español 204 se dedica al mejoramiento del uso de la lengua castellana en su forma escrita y oral. El curso se enfocará en tres actividades: 1) el repaso y aprendizaje de la gramática; 2) la lectura en español relacionada con aspectos culturales de Hispanoamérica y España, y 3) la redacción—estilo y composi-ción.
Se hablará mucho de gramática, se hará una variedad de actividades escritas y, por supuesto, se escribi-rán varias composiciones. Como la mejor manera de aprender cualquier idioma es hablarlo, también se incorporarán muchas actividades orales al estudio diario. En breve, hay tres actividades que te facilitarán la posibilidad de tener éxito en este curso: 1) prepararte antes de clase, 2) hacer y entregar tus tareas a tiempo y 3) participar en clase.
COMPOSITIONS, TESTS, AND DAILY HOMEWORK
Throughout the syllabus, compositions, written assignments and readings are clearly spelled out. Each test will cover the material from the review materials or chapters studied previous to that day. Students are expected to complete all readings and to have read all material from the syllabus before each test, even if all of the material was not covered in class. A regular schedule of studying Spanish each day is generally much more successful than cramming the night before a test. The pace of the presentation of new material is based on the assumption that students are coming to class prepared for any day’s lesson.
Your instructor will assign homework—either from the textbook or the WebSAM—on a regular basis. Homework assignments and their due dates will be posted on the Enfoques supersite. You should check regularly what the assignments are and when they are due. Your final homework grade will be based on the amount of homework you complete throughout the semester and the grade your instructor gives to certain activities or tasks.
TRABAJO DE LABORATORIO, CLOW 221, Phone: 4017
There are two ways to build vocabulary effectively at the intermediate level; one of those is to read for content, and the other is to listen to Spanish. Because this class is not a conversation class in the way that your first year courses were, there is less focus on building speaking skills. Take every opportunity to speak Spanish; both the Spanish Club and the Hora de conversación provide such opportunities. On the other hand, reading and writing skills do not improve without good listening skills, so all students will be required to go to the language laboratory and listen to the audio materials that accompany Enfoques.
Each student will need to register with the Enfoques 3/e Supersite (http://enfoques.vhlcentral.com/) and complete the indicated assignments by the dates given. Each time we start a new chapter, you should begin to complete the corresponding WebSAM activities at your own pace as part of your daily homework. Be sure to follow your instructor’s instructions regarding the completion of WebSAM homework and lab assignments. Using the Web-SAM will certainly help you master the material. Lab assignments completed AFTER the deadline will receive NO credit.
You are required to spend at least 30 minutes a week in the language lab, Clow 221, for eight (8) of the fourteen weeks in the term. While you are in the lab, you can work with the Web-SAM, but you may also work with the materials available in the Lab. These are some of the materials that you may use in the Foreign Language Lab:



  • A otro nivel: Intermediate Spanish

  • Learn Spanish Now!

  • Mosaicos: Spanish as a World Language

  • Mucho Spanish

  • Pronunciación y fonética

  • Ventanas: Curso intermedio de la lengua española

You may want to use these sites for additional practice:




  • www.trinity.edu/mstroud/grammar

  • www.colby.edu/~bknelson/SLC/index.php

Whether or not your teacher requires that you do computer drills, they are definitely worth the effort for all students and are recommended. Check the open lab hours posted on the door of Clow 221 or the language lab’s website, and find a 30-minute block of time in which you can go to the lab for computer drilling or lab work. This brief extra work will pay off in your classroom and test performance.



LECTURAS
Every time a new chapter is begun, the lectura for that unit will be indicated along with the appropriate page numbers. You should have read the selection by the third-to-last day before the chapter test is to be taken, or by the date indicated, when the reading will be discussed in class. A short quiz, worth five points, on the reading will be given the as scheduled.

ATTENDANCE POLICY
Because language learning is a cumulative process, and because repeated absences affect the whole class, regular attendance is expected. The course meets three hours per week during the term. You are allowed a total of two (2) absences without penalty during the semester. Except for religious holidays, ALL other absences count, including those due to illness, personal reasons, special events, etc. If you are absent more than two times during the term, your final class participation grade will be progressively reduced as a result, according to the number of absences over two. If you miss class a total of three times, your final class participation grade will be reduced by 5%; if you miss a total of five times, the reduction will be 10%; seven times, 15%; nine times, 20%; eleven times, 25%. A student missing 30% of all classes [i.e., thirteen (13) classes] will receive no points for class participation. Absences may be considered for partial exemption from penalty provided that class participation and performance are exceptional and that there are unusual circumstances to justify the days missed. Arriving late to class two times equals one absence. Leaving the classroom during activities with or without permission from the instructor will also be considered a late arrival. If you miss two classes or fewer, you will get the benefit of the full class participation grade, whatever that may be.
OJO: The importance of class attendance cannot be stressed too much. There is a strong negative correlation between absences and success in the class. Students who treat the course as if it were a correspondence course typically do not do well.
PLAGIARISM
Presenting anyone else’s ideas or writing as your own is dishonest and will not be tolerated. This is particularly important when you are writing a composition. Since such compositions are, in reality, a form of take home test, remember that their content should reflect only your efforts. Asking a friend or tutor to “look it over” and suggest improvements constitutes intellectual fraud. If you need help in expressing particular ideas, ask your instructor for help.
For more information please refer to the Student Discipline Code and read section 14.30: Academic misconduct subject to disciplinary action.
