Wondering if Spanish is the right choice?
Wondering if your student is ready?
Join Ms. Rachel as she introduces students to the rewarding world of foreign language study!
Students will explore basic concepts of the Spanish language and Hispanic culture. They will learn a variety of vocabulary and create cultural projects such as traditional foods and crafts (special supply kit included with registration). This is a great introduction to important skills which will enhance and prepare students who are interested in continuing to more formal study in Spanish I for transcript credit.
Ms. Rachel wants language learning to be FUN! She created this course to appeal to all learning types. Instruction and assignments will include reading, writing, listening, speaking, active and hands-on activities. Students will be encouraged to share their ideas in a positive environment.
As long as students are making a good effort, Ms. Rachel is happy to adapt and assist as needed to help EVERYONE succeed! She encourages both students and parents to contact her throughout the year with concerns and feedback. Learning is a team effort and she looks forward to welcoming you to the team!
The purpose of language is communication, Unless excepted for adapted learning needs, it is important that students use microphones and cameras while participating in class each week. They are expected to complete all assignments. Families are counted upon to communicate with the instructor any learning challenges, special needs, or concerns so that we may work together to make this a great learning experience for all!
Students can expect between 30 – 60 minutes of homework weekly.
NOTE: This class must reach the minimum of five students by March 5, 2024 to run. If we do not reach this minimum, parents will be notified via email.
great teacher loved her skils and pep
Rachel Bevins is such a lovely teacher, making sure her students feel supported and encouraged during the language-learning process. I’m amazed by her patience every time I listen to part of her lesson, as she is one of those gifted teachers who can keep teens on track while also allowing them to feel validated with the things they want to express.
My daughter (and I) appreciated her grading policies. This was our first high school year, so having study groups outside of normal class hours was new to us, so just plan for your child to be online for those 1-2x per week as well. For my daughter, this was a great time to connect with her classmates and also to make sure she felt on track with what she was learning. It also built in some structure for her to stay on top of homework assignments.
We look forward to Spanish II next year, and would highly recommend this class.
Mrs. Bevins is a wonderful teacher who keeps students interested through interactive live classes and innovative assignments. Both of my daughters took Spanish 2 and had a great year! The work load is very reasonable but rigorous enough, and engages the student in different ways to solidify learning. Students have plenty of practice with listening, speaking, and writing the language. Grading happens in a timely manner and feedback is plentiful. I highly recommend this engaging class!
