Students will NOT be assigned a text book. We have an online book and students will be registered and given a username and password. If a student does not have internet access at home a CD-ROM will be assigned. In the event there is no computer at all a hard copy of the text may be assigned (this is very rare).
Format and Activities:
Each day students will read, write, listen and speak French. Lessons include a wide variety of teaching methods to address various learning styles.

All school rules, policies and procedures are followed. Polite behavior is expected at all times. Questions or concerns should be brought to my attention as soon as possible so we can work out a solution.
Partner work is very frequent in this class. However, when individual work is requested no credit will be given for copied work. In the event that it cannot be determined who did the work and who copied, no credit will be given to either student.
