Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: This is a continuation of Look Who’s Talking in Spanish from the Spring 2019 semester

Teaching foreign language proficiency through reading, storytelling, and physical response is based on the idea that to acquire a language, students must be exposed to many meaningful repetitions of the most common words from that language, both aurally and through reading.

In this class, students will read, act out, and translate stories using the comprehensible input they are provided in class. The story structures will be similar as we expand the stories with more vocabulary in order to ingrain what they already know and build meaningful, related vocabulary structures. Building vocabulary in this manner helps students talk in a foreign language faster than memorizing lists of words and verb conjugations.

Homework is necessary for this class since immersion and constant review in a language is necessary for language to stick. With only one day a week of class, it’s necessary for students to review what they’ve learned during the week prior to the next class so that precious class time isn’t taken up with reviewing. Most weeks, student homework will consist of a small list of vocabulary words to memorize since we will incorporate those words into the learning that will happen in the next class period, translating an easy short story containing the grammatical structures and vocabulary worked on in class, and questions in regards to the short translated text.

**Please note: This class is closed to new students.

Class Length: 16 weeks

Prerequisites: Must have taken Spanish 4

Homework: 2-3 hours

Book: Previously purchased book

Supplies: Spanish I – Look I Can Talk text, paper, writing utensil, Spanish Dictionary

Fees: $2

Teacher: Melissa Jagears

Description: In this class, students will read, act out, and translate Spanish stories. The story structures will be similar as we expand the stories with more vocabulary in order to cement what they've already learned and build meaningful, related vocabulary structures. Other material will be covered, such as pronunciation and verb conjugation as it fits the lessons.

***NOTE*** This class is meant to build upon itself every semester. I will continue to teach these Spanish 1 students until the desire drops off. I cannot add new students into later semesters because the previous classes will be prerequisites.This class requires the purchase of a book upfront and the best way to get the most from this class is if you plan to stick with it through multiple semesters.

Homework is necessary for this class since immersion and constant review in a language is necessary for language to stick. It will be NECESSARY for students to review what they’ve learned during the week prior to the next class so that precious class time isn’t taken up with reviewing. Most weeks, student homework will consist of a small list of vocabulary words to memorize since we will incorporate those words into the learning that will happen in the next class period, translating and writing out an easy short story containing the grammatical structures and vocabulary worked on in class, and/or questions in regards to the short translated text. Please set aside some school time to attend to Spanish homework/review.

A year of this class alone will not be equivalent to one high school credit of Spanish. If you'd like to work towards credit, you will have to add to this class. Two free sources that are available and will aid in Spanish retention is working through the entire Spanish program "tree" in Duolingo, which is free, and the Spanish program in Mango Idiomas which is currently offered for free with a free Kansas State Library card that you can obtain from from a Wichita Library. I can explain more if you desire to have students work every day at home for credit. These two programs coupled with my classes will help students be well on their way to earning a credit.

Description: This is a 2 hour class. Friendly Chemistry presents all of the topics covered by traditional high school chemistry classes, but in a context of simpler terminology and hands-on experiential learning, which makes the concepts more accessible to most learners.

Class Length: 16 weeks, year long

Homework: 2-3 hours

Prerequisites: None

Book & Manipulative Set:  1) Friendly Chemistry Student Edition A: Guide to Learning Basic Chemistry by Joey Hajda and Lisa B. Hajda

2) Friendly Chemistry Manipulatives Set.  Please acquire this early enough to do all of the “some assembly required” work (cutting out pieces, laminating, etc) and put all the pieces in a baggie BEFORE school starts.

(No need to buy the “annotated solutions manual”. There is also a consumable student workbook available but not required. With the workbook you will make fewer copies of work pages if you want to keep the textbook clean for resale.)

Supplies: Dedicated notebook, pencil

Fees: $100 (per student, per semester)

Social Studies

Teacher: Nancy Reeves

Description: Students will learn about world geography and culture by exchanging postcards with people around the world. Each student will have an account on postcrossing.com to track received postcards and get addresses for recipients.

Homework is VERY IMPORTANT and EASY. Students must (1) bring received postcards to class, (2) write a message on outgoing postcards, (3) mail outgoing postcards within 2-3 days of receiving addresses in class. PARENTS, by registering your student for this class, you are agreeing to help make
these 3 things happen. The last item of homework is also quick and easy, and it increases the value of the class: (4) complete a worksheet for each postcard received.

Students above 8th grade accepted; they may have additional assignments. Previous students may repeat this class. New students will have priority if the class fills.

Postcards in the supply list will be pooled for everyone to select.

Note: It is possible for a student to use the teacher's account instead of having their own. I discourage this because it limits the number postcards sent and received. Please contact teacher with questions or concerns.
