Student outcomes: Successful students in this course will learn the history and the Assessed by exams, final paper, development of Spanish culture and civilization, and will practice presentation, and class participation. reading, speaking, and writing in Spanish. The course grade is determined by the number of points the student earns in exams, class participation, the final paper and presentation, and the journal (see Evaluación). A 60% average is required in order to pass the course. Student obligations: 1) prepare the readings and exercises, attend class and participate in class discussions and other activities. 2) take the exams on the dates indicated in the calendar and give the presentation on the date scheduled. In case of illness or other serious problem, a make-up exam will be given or the presentation postponed IF the student obtains the professor's approval beforehand or presents written, acceptable evidence that attendance was impossible on the designated date. Leaving a message via voicemail or e-mail does not guarantee approval. Any exam must be made up before the next one on the calendar is given. 3) with another student, make a presentation on an issue of current interest in Spain. More information will be posted on the instructor's web page (see page 1 of the syllabus). 4) prepare an original (to you and to this course), portfolio quality paper on a historical topic approved by the instructor. Some of the "Más allá" items in each chapter are good suggestions, but there are other possibilities, as well. A preliminary bibliography will be required on the 15th of February. Late papers will be penalized at one letter grade

per day late, at the discretion of the instructor. Criteria for evaluation include: a) quality of the content (good

information and presentation of same, clear thesis, valid conclusion), b) appropriate and effective use of supporting materials, c) correct use of Castilian, d) MLA style. More information on the paper will be posted on the

instructor's web page. The NKU Student Honor Code. The Honor Code is a commitment that, individually and collectively, the students of Northern Kentucky University will not lie, cheat, or plagiarize to gain an academic advantage over fellow students or avoid academic requirements. All work you will do in this course is subject to this code, including extra credit. Students are expected to do their own work on all examinations, exercises, and other assignments except where group work is necessary & expected. Students are to write their own papers and correct their own grammatical errors therein. Because the investigation of the paper topic will require consulting outside sources, remember this: any time you use the information or ideas of another source, either through paraphrase or direct quotation, you MUST document the source. Documentation is to be in MLA style. Failure to use MLA style will result in a grade reduction of up to 10 points, at the discretion of the instructor. If you are not sure about what types of help are appropriate or when documentation is required, consult the professor. She would far rather answer questions than have to enforce the code! Violations of this policy are subject to penalties, as specified in the honor code. For more information, consult the following site: Class participation: Class participation will be evaluated according to the following criteria: 1) attendance, 2) quality of preparation (has the student done a good job on the reading, prepared the exercise well, etc.) 3) quality and quantity of participation in class discussions and exercises (does the student participate intelligently, intelligibly, and often). Students are to be respectful toward the professor and their fellow students. Pagers, cell phones, I-pods, Blackberries and other electronic devices must be turned off and put away during class. If a device rings or a student is seen using it without permission, the student will receive one (1) warning. If the offense is repeated, the student will be asked to leave and will not receive participation credit for that day. Please note: the fact that one is a native or near-native speaker of Spanish does not guarantee a good grade in participation. The fact that one is still at a low speaking level does not guarantee a bad grade. Students should concentrate on communicating facts and ideas to their classmates. The less-proficient should use simple sentences, gestures, etc. The more proficient should slow down and enunciate clearly. In the end, the instructor will be looking at whether the student's words show that he/she knows and has thought about the course material.

There will be a link to the page posted on Blackboard. Extra credit. Perhaps one of the exámenes doesn't represent your best work? Here's how you can boost your score.
