    Course Description:
    This course focuses on the development of the three modes of communication: Interpretive, Interpersonal, and Presentational.  Each unit includes activities that emphasize speaking, reading, writing, and listening skills. These skills are enriched with simultaneous language and functional study. Students are exposed to the basics of practical conversation and to the character, lifestyle, and social customs of the American people.  

     CLASS RULES

    1. Respect others, yourself, and the teacher all the time.

    2. Use polite and appropriate language. There will be no swearing, hitting, or rudeness in our classroom.

    3. Do not eat, chew gum, drink beverages, or wear a hat/earphones in our classroom.

    GRADING:

    Grades will consist of classwork, class attitude, tests & quizzes, projects & presentations, and homework. The final average for the marking period is determined by dividing the earned points by the attempted points.
