CLASSROOM POLICIES Homework is due at the beginning of each class. Please, check the school‘s web page where you can find the most important information regarding Spanish homework, projects or presentations. Classwork is very important in this course, because I can value the progress, the productions and effort of each student. Any make-ups must be done within 5 days of returning to school. Other classroom and behavioral policies are covered in the student handbook. Please, do not forget your textbook, notebook, binder and a sharpened pencil.
