EXTRA CREDIT- points go towards homework grade for WHS grade. Below you will also find extra credit opportunites for UW students
5 puntos de extra crédito: Complete the activities on the Quia webpages and e-mail me a paragraph summary in Spanish of what games you played, what concepts you practiced, what was challenging or helpful to you and your score for each game (only 5 points allowed per month). You must play at least 3 games. You can find the Quia webpage for your class under the "Useful Links" button.
10 puntos de extra crédito: You may do 3 of the following extra credit assignments per semester at ten points maximum per assignment. Viewing or participating in a cultural event is accepted, but you must do a write-up as outlined below**.
1. Attend a Spanish Club gathering; these are typically once a month and last for two hours. Spanish Club will provide an attendance verification, therefore you do not need any other proof of attendance.
2. View a culturally relevant Spanish film from the list below; you must provide either a rental receipt, OR a parent note verifying that you watched the film. Additionally, you will need to do a write-up as outlined below. In addition to turning in a hard copy to the inbox, essays will also need to be submitted into http://turnitin.com. Be sure to ask parent permission before viewing each movie.
3. Attend a cultural event in the community. Occasionally, I will announce to the class when something relevant to the Spanish language and culture is happening in the greater Seattle area. Typically, these events are scheduled around specific holidays such as Mexican Independence or Day of the Dead. For proof of attendance, you will need to provide a brochure, ticket or photo from the event or else parent note. Additionally, you will need to do a write-up as outlined below. One opportunity that is ongoing is to watch a local flamenco show: http://www.fanw.org/calendar.html.
