Course Description: The second year Spanish program at UCSB is designed to help students consolidate their basic knowledge of Spanish while developing the four language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course introduces the subjunctive mood and vocabulary related to current topics of interest, as well as functional phrases and grammar structures with an emphasis on real communication in meaningful cultural contexts. By the end of the quarter you will have learned vocabulary that allows for basic communication on topics including social issues, history, art and urbanism, government, and economics. The major grammar points covered to support communication on these topics are the simple and compound tenses in the subjunctive in main and subordinate clauses, relative pronouns, simple and compound conditional tenses and formation of conditional clauses, and the passive voice. By the end of the quarter you will be able to produce an argumentative essay in Spanish. A note about reading in this course Reading a novel outside of class is a major component of this course. The novel is accessible to the intermediate-level student of Spanish with the support of reading guides and vocabulary lists. Nevertheless, reading will be challenging at first and you should expect to dedicate approximately 2-3 hours of time to reading each chapter. Specific reading strategies will be discussed in class so that reading in Spanish can become more automatic and, ultimately, rewarding. Attendance: Due to the nature of language learning in general, class attendance is mandatory since it is absolutely critical for developing communicative abilities in Spanish. At the same time, it is understood that circumstances and events such as illnesses, weddings, funerals, job interviews, family emergencies, etc. may prevent your attendance. Therefore, you will be allowed a total of three absences during the quarter. These are not free days, so plan accordingly. Starting with the fourth absence, regardless of the reasons for the first three, ONE percentage point will be subtracted from the final calculated course grade for each additional absence. Late arrivals and early departures may also count as absences. BE PROMPT! If health or personal issues will prevent your regular attendance, you should not take this class since your final grade will be severely affected. Active participation: Your in-class participation involves a number of variables, including, but not limited to, the following: • Your use of Spanish in the classroom • Your participation in all in-class activities and online activities through GauchoSpace • Your cooperation during group and pair-work • Your respect and attitude toward the instructor and your peers Since the class requires active participation, ABSOLUTELY NO TEXT MESSAGING, USE OF CELL PHONES OR WEB BROWSING is permitted during class. Doing so will severely affect your participation grade. Online activities: Connect Plus offers additional practice with vocabulary, grammar and listening comprehension, to be done by students outside of class. In order to have access to Connect Plus you will need an access key (usually packaged with your textbook, or available for purchase online). Go to the Connect Plus site (http://connect.mcgraw-hill.com) and create an account. In order to enroll in your course you will need a URL that will be provided to you by your instructor. There is homework due on ConnectPlus almost every day. You are responsible for completing all activity assignments on Connect Plus by the due date at time listed on the website. Make sure you click on the “next assignments” tab so that you don’t miss any assignments. Compositions: There will be three short essays, with two drafts each. These essays should be typed, double-spaced, and 650-750 words long. Accent marks and Spanish special characters must be typed too. Compositions that do not meet these requirements will not be graded. The first draft of each composition will count for 60% of the grade; the second (final) draft will count for 40% of the grade: the two scores combined constitute the final grade for that particular composition. The first and final drafts cannot be exactly alike. If no rewriting is done by the student, no credit will be given for the final draft. No help may be obtained outside of class (friends, more proficient speakers or former instructors). If you would like feedback on your writing assignments, you must use the Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS). If you use this tutorial service, request the yellow confirmation card from your tutor and attach it to your assignment when you turn it in. The compositions are due the day indicated on the syllabus. No compositions will be accepted late. Cheating and Plagiarism: All instructors in the Spanish and Portuguese language program will follow University policy concerning cheating and plagiarism, including when evaluating compositions. The following practices, among others, are considered instances of plagiarism: • copying and pasting from outside references or electronic sources • paraphrasing or translating without acknowledging the source • using online translators in any capacity (e.g. not even as dictionaries) • getting revising/rewriting help from more advanced speakers other than the tutors at CLAS or your instructor All instructors in the Spanish and Portuguese department are professionals trained in language teaching and linguistic competence. They can EASILY recognize work that is not your own. Know what plagiarism is: ignorance will not excuse the offense. If an instance of academic dishonesty is discovered, the professor may give a failing grade to the student on the assignment or for the course. If you have any questions about plagiarism, please ask your instructor and consult the Academic Conduct guidelines by Judicial Affairs: http://judicialaffairs.sa.ucsb.edu/AcademicIntegrity.aspx. You are allowed to use an online dictionary (not online translators) such as wordreference.com. The only acceptable revision help is with the Campus Learning Assistance Services (CLAS). Please take a moment to see when composition drafts are due so that you can schedule to meet with a CLAS tutor for revising help. In the event that a student is found to have committed plagiarism or other forms of academic dishonesty, he/she will receive a ZERO on the assignment. Furthermore, under University policy, the instructor is obligated to report the incident to the Office of the Dean of Students, whose office will investigate the incident and decide what additional sanctions will be applied. Testing and grading: All of the exam dates are included in the syllabus. There are NO makeup exams. If you miss an exam or in-class assignment you will only be allowed to make it up if you present official documentation that justifies your absence. The final exam will be cumulative and will include a final composition. The grading policy follows. There is no extra credit. The following are the cutoff points for each grade: A+ 98 A 93 A- 90.0 B+ 88 B 83 B- 80.0 C+ C C- 78 73 70.0 Exams: [email protected] 15% each Online Activities (ConnectPlus and GauchoSpace) Compositions 3 @ 5% each Active participation Final exam D+ 68 D 63 D- 60.0 45% 10% 15% 5% 25% (comprehensive) Pass/No Pass option: Students fulfilling the language requirement are strongly discouraged from taking Spanish classes Pass/No Pass. A grade of C or better is required to pass with this option and no student with a final percentage lower than 73 will be assigned a grade of Pass. Possible Spanish Majors: Intermediate Spanish classes are designed to present the tools necessary for learning Spanish. Students do not automatically become either fluent or proficient by completing this program as language acquisition must occur outside of the classroom. Students hoping to become proficient and/or major or minor in Spanish are strongly encouraged to participate in an Education Abroad or Immersion program. No Make-up exam policy: No make-up exams will be given for personal events, including weddings, graduations, interviews, etc.
