Easier To Get A Job According to the U.S Census Bureau, about 12 percent of U.S. residents speak Spanish at home. As a result rising number of jobs require spanish or at least prefer individuals who can speak spanish. All of these companies have a branch or headquarters in Atlanta that deals with Spanish speaking countries and or people.
By 2050, the US will be the largest Spanish speaking country, according to Humberto López Morales, the general secretary of the Association of Spanish Language Academies.largest Spanish speaking country Americans have a reputation for being monolingual. Prove them wrong! Impress your friends by joining the ranks of the bilingual. Better yet -- help them learn too!
Esta cita del famoso Nelson Mandela nos dice mucho: “If you talk to a man in a language he understands, that goes to his head. If you talk to him in his own language, that goes to his heart.” ¿Qué piensas tú?
Helps Your English Spanish is derived from Latin, like many words in English (via French). Learning Spanish will boost your vocab by familiarizing you with words that have fallen out of everyday use in English, but have common equivalents in Spanish. Makes You Smarter That's right -- the latest research shows that speaking being bilingual improves cognitive skills unrelated to language.

What are the rules/guidelines in this classroom?
In Sra. Morales’s Classroom… Group Dynamics: Being in a public place requires special behavior. A school classroom is a very public place where group dynamics require that we all be thoughtful & respectful with where and how we focus our attention. Speaking one at a time & raising your hand to speak are some ways we can ensure that the classroom environment is positive and respectful.
Guideline #1 Be on time and in your assigned seat and working on the assigned warm-up (calentamiento) when the tardy bell rings.

Copying homework is cheating. Any student found cheating at any time including communicating during assessments, will be referred to an administrator and the parents will be notified. A zero will be given for any work for which cheating was an issue. The use of a translator is considered cheating and is therefore forbidden. Dress code, No food, drinks (except water), candy, or gum; NO cell phones, headphones in the classroom, etc. REFER TO GREEN SIGNS IN CLASSROOM FOR CONSEQUENCES

MLA Paper Header Student # I will give you Nombre y apedillo AP Spanish Period 1 5 de agosto de 2014
What to do if I finish my classwork early: Work on unfinished Spanish assignment/project. Review grammar notes/handouts. Review vocabulary lists. Review any other handouts (I will give you lots and we won’t always have time to go over them in class) Start working on tonight’s homework.
After an Absence – Make –up work This is your responsibility. Go to the folders of “¿Qué hicimos ayer?” and take any handouts you missed. Ask a reliable classmate (before or after class) for other details you missed in addition to the handouts. Or, ask Sra. Morales when she is not busy (before or after school or class) about what you missed. AND, check Sra. Morales’ GHS Teacher Page. And do not interrupt class to inquire about the work you missed. ¡Gracias!
After an Absence – Make –up work (continued) All quizzes, tests, projects, etc. are announced well in advance. If a students was absent the day before or at some other time prior to the quiz, they still must take the quiz on the day it is given (limited exceptions). Students who have an excused absence on the day we do a graded assignment (tests, quizzes) may make the assignment up without penalty (within 5 days). The assignment must be made up at one of the usual make- up times: before or after school. Students who are absent the day an assignment is due, must turn it in to the teacher the first day they return from their absence.
Accepting Assignments Late From time to time, some students may forget an assignment or run out of time and cannot finish before it is due. At GHS, we do accept assignments late at a penalty of -10 points per school day for five days. After five days, a zero for the assignment may be assigned. BE CAREFUL! This extremely flexible late-work policy can be dangerous for students. The days go by quickly, students get busy, and then may forget to turn in their work. The result is either a zero or an extremely low grade.
Scheduled Check Out Please let me know as you enter the classroom. –I will be at the door or at my desk. Quietly raise your hand to get my attention. Pack your materials and leave at the scheduled time.
Turning in Papers Place your paper on the desk next to you (to your right side). When you receive a paper, place yours on top and continue passing the stack to your right. I will come by and collect all stacks.
Classroom Discussions PLEASE participate. And whenever possible, ¡EN ESPAÑOL! I want to hear what you have to say. Make all questions and comments relevant to the current discussion. If your question is off the topic, write it down and ask later.
Bathroom breaks Raise 3 fingers and wait for me to acknowledge and ask in Spanish… ¿ Puedo ir al baño, por favor?
Moving Around the Room Do not do it. You must ask permission. Do not ask during a classroom discussion unless it is an emergency.
Class Dismissal Sra. Morales dismisses you, not the bell. Do not start packing up prior to the bell. Wait until the teacher finishes and officially dismisses you with “Have a nice day!” “¡Tengan un buen d í a!” Please do not stand and line up by the door. Remain at your desk until the bell rings.
