lunes, 25 de diciembre – viernes 5 de enero ¡Vacaciones! ¡No hay clase!

All assignments are from the Pasajes book unless otherwise stated. The numbers indicate page numbers, the letters indicate the activity on that page. Remember that sometimes an activity starts on one page and continues onto the next page, but I will only indicate the page it starts on. Also, sometimes activities have names, like autoprueba for example.


Leer y estudiar means to read and study the indicated pages. If there is vocabulary on those pages, read it, practice pronouncing it, and begin studying and learning it according to methods we will discuss in class. If the pages explain points of grammar or cultural information, read and think about them. Try to understand them and be ready to ask in class about things that are not clear.


Preparar means to prepare the activity. Read the directions and be ready to do the exercise or activity in class. You should think about how to answer the questions before class, so that in class you can do so without much hesitation.


Hacer means to do the activity. I’m not going to collect it, so you can do it in you book or on paper, as you wish. You should be able to respond to the exercises assigned as hacer without much hesitation.


Escribir means to write the assignment out, on a sheet of paper and bring it to class ready to turn in. Be sure to include your name, class and section or class hour, and an indication of what the assignment is (the page numbers and exercise letter or name.) Either write clearly or use a computer and print the assignment out.


Entregar means to turn in. I usually use this category for things you've been working on for a while. Make sure your name, class and section or class hour, and the name of the assignment are on all work turned in.
