Guía de estudios - Examen del semestre 1

Attached is a review packet for the semester final. It covers more than we have done so far, so keep in mind that only  #1-120 will be fair game for the exam. This is the most useful tool for review leading up to the exam. It covers all the grammar and vocabulary, and is in the same format as the final. We will reference this during class when reviewing together. Feel free to print and bring it, but this is not required. Happy studying!

Proyecto - El periódico ridículo

Hola todos:
We will begin a project at the end of this week, which is based on our current chapter about the news/media. You will be required to work in a group of 4 to create a poster that represents a newspaper or magazine.
The poster must be 8.5"x11" minimum; no lined paper final projects will be accepted. We will work on a rough draft in class, but some work will need to be done outside of class time. We will begin forming groups and working on the rough draft on 1/12 (B) and 1/16 (A). I will check the rough drafts in class before allowing each group to begin their poster. The final poster must include: an image/drawing, an article, a title, and a headline. Your rough draft is worth 10 points, and the final poster is worth 30 points (40 point total). Posters are due on finals day for your class next week.
The group roles are as follows:
-1 member: artist (article drawing, poster format)
-2 members: writers (article text)
-1 member: editor (read/correct article, create title and headline)
We will discuss the details and scoring of the project in class- I look forward to seeing you soon!
Sr. McKinney

Índice de contenidos

Examen Unidad 1 Etapa 2

Our exam for U1E2 is 11/30 (B day) and 12/1 (A day). It will be the same format as the last exam: a vocabulary test/prueba de vocabulario of 20 terms from the list on pg. 73, and an exam/examen. The exam portion will be a mix of multiple choice, true/false, and short answer.
It would serve you best to study the vocabulary, the new stem change verbs (pg. 60), and the irregular preterite verbs (pg.63). We will take the exam during the second half of the period. Reach out with any questions or concerns, and happy studying!
Sr. McKinney

Pruebita del pretérito irregular

As mentioned in class, we will have a quiz on the irregular preterite verbs on 11/28 (B) and 11/29 (A). It will cover the new verbs from pg. 63 in the text, and your notes. The quiz will include two conjugation charts, three fill in the blank sentences, and one extra credit question. As homework, you are required to study, and have a parent sign your calendar to authorize that you studied for this quiz for at least 15 minutes. I will check for this on the day of your quiz.
Happy studying!
