2. Course Objectives and General Observations
Spanish 210 is the final course in Juniata’s three-semester introductory Spanish sequence. The
primary goals of this course are to enable students to continue building their proficiency in
Spanish and to attain a broader exposure to and understanding of Hispanic cultures. There is no
magic formula for learning a foreign language. The key to acquiring any skill is practice, and my
aim as instructor is to facilitate the learning process by fostering a positive environment in which
we can use Spanish to communicate with one other. PLEASE DO NOT BE AFRAID TO
MAKE MISTAKES!! We will all make lots of them during the course of the semester, and the
challenge is to learn from them as you work toward achieving functional proficiency in Spanish.

It is important to recognize that students begin this class with different backgrounds and
proficiency levels in Spanish, and we all need to be supportive of and patient with one another.
Experience has taught me that the students who tend to make the most progress in this course are
not necessarily those who enter with the strongest skills, but rather those who invest the most
energy and enthusiasm in the class. Your acquisition of the language depends on the quality (and
quantity) of your practice both in and outside class. As a general rule, you should prepare two
hours outside of class for every hour of classroom instruction. This will vary depending on your
level of proficiency, your aptitude for languages and the material assigned, but to make steady
progress you need to use the language on a daily basis.

It is normal to feel frustrated when you can’t find the words to express what you are thinking and
feeling, and that frustration is compounded when attempting to communicate in another language.

Three keys to language acquisition are patience, perseverance, and a sense of humor, all of which
help keep frustration at bearable levels, as does setting attainable goals. You won’t be “fluent” in
Spanish at the end of SP 210, but you will be much more “proficient” in your ability to express
yourself regarding a variety of familiar topics in Spanish. In addition, world language study
provides you with the opportunity to enrich your understanding both of your own culture and of
Hispanic cultures around the globe. Please make the effort to view the world with a different set
of cultural lenses, taking the imaginative leap necessary to see the world through the eyes of a
Mayan campesino, a Mexican muralist, or a Basque separatist.

3.1 Participation and Attendance
Active participation in classroom activities is extremely important. This component takes into
account a number of variables, including but not limited to:
 regular attendance and thorough preparation for each class, completing each assignment
    before coming to class
 active participation in whole class and small group work
 use of Spanish (and not English)
 respect and a positive attitude toward the class, the instructor and your peers

In addition to negatively affecting your participation grade, each unexcused absence after the third of
the semester will result in the lowering of your final grade by one percentage point. Note that 3 late
arrivals equal 1 absence, so please be on time for class.

Participation guidelines:
A     Always arrives to class on time, well-prepared and ready to work. Participates actively in
      all classroom activities; volunteers frequently. Uses exclusively Spanish in the classroom.
B     Usually arrives to class prepared and on time. Participates in activities on a regular basis.
      Volunteers, but often waits for teacher’s cue. Sometimes uses English in the classroom.
C     Sometimes arrives to class unprepared and/or late. Contributes to activities occasionally,
      but usually only when asked to do so. Sometimes uses English in the classroom.
D     Frequently arrives to class unprepared and rarely participates in activities unless asked to
      do so. Sometimes uses English in the classroom.
F     Poor attendance, preparation and participation in activities.

No late assignments will be accepted except under extraordinary circumstances and only with
documentation; all assignments are due the day of class when you walk through the door. If you
know in advance that you will miss a class, please tell me as soon as possible. If the absence is
excusable, it is your responsibility to make up the work immediately upon return OR before you
go. For unexcused absences, you do not have the option to make up missed assignments.

3.2 WB / LM / VM Activities via Aventuras 2/e Web-SAM plus Aventuras Supersite
The Workbook (WB), Lab Manual (LM) and Video Manual (VM) activities are available online
via Aventuras 2/e Web-SAM at http://books.quia.com/books with automatic scoring for the
majority of the activities. The online system allows you to repeat an activity as many times as
needed in order to earn a perfect score. I will record only the final score of the discrete item
assignments so that you can decide at what point you are satisfied with your performance.
If you make two attempts or ten attempts, I will still record only your final “best effort”
score. You are expected to complete all WB, LM and VM exercises by the dates listed on
the course calendar as well as online. For the more open-ended responses in the WB/LM/VM, I
will provide feedback to you and will adjust the computer-assigned grades accordingly. To self-
enroll for activities assigned on Aventuras 2/e Web-SAM, please follow the instructions at
the end of this course packet.

Additional practice and resources are available on the Aventuras Supersite at
http://aventuras.vhlcentral.com/.Some of these activities will be assigned during the semester.
You are expected to complete assigned Supersite (S) activities by the due dates that will be
posted online. You will have two attempts to complete each of the assigned Supersite
activities.To self-enroll for the Aventuras Supersite, please go to:

3.3 Cultural Activities

3.3.1 Two cultural reports (informes culturales)
You are required to participate in two Hispanic cultural activities during the course of the
semester (e.g., movies or videos in Spanish, Spanish Club activities, attendance at talks or
cultural gatherings, etc.) and to submit a two-page typed report written in English for each
activity (Please note: plot summaries will not be accepted). In your reports, you should:
     Reflect on cultural practices or products and the cultural perspectives associated with
     Draw comparisons between the Hispanic culture’s practices/products/perspectives
         represented and those of your own culture.
**Due dates for the two reports are September 24th and November 12th.

3.4 Speaking Tasks

3.4.1 Mesa Hispánica
You are required to participate in the conversation table, Mesa Hispánica, five (5) times during
the course of the semester. More information will be provided as to where and when these
sessions will take place.

3.4.2 Oral interview
During the last two weeks of the semester, individual oral proficiency interviews will be
conducted in my office for you to demonstrate the proficiency level that you have developed. The
interviews will last between 12-15 minutes and will primarily focus on topics that we have

examined during the semester as well as other familiar topics. Students at the intermediate level
should be able to ask and answer questions on familiar topics, create with the language by
combining previously learned material, and handle a familiar situation or transaction without

3.5 Writing Tasks
The four writing assignments (ejercicios escritos = EE) are to be turned in on the dates indicated,
although I recommend that you do the activities when their corresponding sections are assigned in
the workbook or text. Each writing assignment, except EE 4 (Lección 15), includes 2 activities.
In order to receive credit, all EE should be typed, double-spaced, with 2-sided printing (when
longer than one page), a minimum of 150 words (15 lines of standard font) for each of the two
activities, and carefully edited by you to correct basic grammatical mistakes such as subject/verb
and noun/adjective agreement. I will grade (using the criteria found on page 12 of this course
packet and on the P: drive) and indicate the mistakes made, and you will correct and turn in the
previous exercises on the date that the next written exercises are due. The final grade for the
written exercises will be based on the initial score and the quality of the corrections.

3.6 Chapter Exams
There will be four written chapter exams in addition to the final exam. Please consult the course
calendar for specific dates. There will be sections testing listening comprehension, vocabulary,
cultural knowledge, grammar, reading comprehension and writing skills. You will receive the
format for test sections and items in advance. No make-ups will be given for exams unless
arranged in advance. If any emergencies or other extenuating circumstances arise, you must let
me know as soon as possible. Please be advised that, at the recommendation of Academic
Support Services, no cell phones nor IPods may be turned on during exams.

3.7 Final Exam
Language learning is a cumulative process. Accordingly, in addition to testing material from the
final chapter (Lesson 16), the final exam will test material covered throughout the semester. You
will receive the format for the final exam at least one week prior to the exam, which will be held
during final exam week.

4. Academic Honesty:
Students are expected to be academically honest. All work must be your own and cheating and
plagiarism will not be tolerated. The Juniata College Catalog contains information on the College
Academic Honesty Policy and Course Withdrawal Policies. Students are expected to be familiar
with them. Any case of unprofessional behavior or academic dishonesty may result in a failing
grade for the course or a portion of the course. Cases of suspected academic dishonesty will be
referred to the appropriate College authorities.

5. Students with Disabilities:
The Dean of Students and the Director of Academic Support Services are responsible for carrying
out policies regarding services for students with disabilities. If you are a student with a learning
disability, please contact the appropriate departments so that we may make the appropriate
accommodations for you in this course.

6. Course Withdrawal:
After the official drop/add period (August 25-September 2), course withdrawals require the
permission of the student’s instructor and faculty advisors and result in a course grade of WP or
WF. While WP means that at the time of the withdrawal the student was passing the course, WF
signifies that at the time of the withdrawal the student was failing the course. WP and WF grades
are not calculated into the GPA. Unofficial withdrawals from all courses are recorded as F.
Withdrawals from class are considered unofficial if the student fails to make satisfactory
arrangements at the Office of the Registrar. Effective Class of 2005: A student is permitted a

maximum of four withdrawals from courses taken at Juniata College during the undergraduate
career. Please note: In this course, you have until Friday, November 7th to petition a withdrawal.
After the 7th of November, no withdrawal will be considered.

7. A few final words:
This syllabus and its course calendar will serve as a guide this semester. If I need to change, add,
or delete assignments or due dates, I will give you advance notice.

I am here to help you, but I can’t unless you come see me (HU 208). I’m glad to give feedback on
drafts of assignments during office hours. If you can’t make regularly scheduled office hours,
make an appointment. You’ll also have a better learning experience if your instructor knows who
you are. For that reason, every student is strongly encouraged to sign up for a brief five-
minute meeting with me to introduce themselves sometime during the first month of the
semester (preferably early on). A sign-up sheet will be posted on my office door early in the
semester, or you can email me and request a time or simply drop in if no one is scheduled.

9. Course Calendar

How to prepare for a typical class:
a) Start with the main text, carefully reading introductory material and explanations, studying
examples, and then doing the textbook’s exercises orally (which means you are in a place where
you can study out loud), as well as writing out answers where appropriate. Unless otherwise
indicated, textbook exercises will not be collected, but some will be used/extended/adapted for
classroom activities.
b) Complete the Aventuras 2/e Web-SAM activities online starting with the WB followed by the
LM. Please remember that these exercises will be graded, so they should be completed with care.
The Lab MP3 Files Audio CD-ROM will be useful in completing the LM if your Internet
connection interferes with audibility.
d) Complete other assignments listed on the course calendar. Remember the VM activities at the
end of each chapter, which are also included in Aventuras 2/e Web-SAM. Watch the video
several times and use it to develop your listening skills as well as to reinforce and review the

chapter material. The VCD contains the complete Video Program with video transcripts in
Spanish and English.
