ADVANCED COMPOSITION AND CONVERSATION

In this course students will have the opportunity to enhance their written and oral proficiency in
Spanish language through analysis of literary texts (especially contemporary epistolary essays),
newspaper articles, and other audiovisual materials that will serve as a basis for discussion.
Activities and assignments will focus on intensive practice of sentence structure and expository
writing.

Grade ranges: All assignments will be graded using numeric values the average of which will be
converted to a lettered grade at the end of the semester. See the following chart:

A+ 96.5 \u2013 100
A 92.5 - 96.4
A- 89.5 \u2013 92.4

B+ 86.5 - 89.4 B 82.5 - 86.4 B- 79.5 \u2013 82.5

C+ 76.5 - 79.4 C 72.5 - 76.4 C- 69.5 - 72.4

D+ 66.5 \u2013 69.4
D 62.5 - 66.4
D- 59.5 - 62.4

F Below 59.5
Participation/attendance: Both attendance and participation are essential for the successful

completion of the course, especially if oral skills in Spanish are to be improved. More than 2
unexcused absences will likewise lower the final grade. Be sure to notify the instructor ahead of time
in the event of an excused absence (e.g., for medical or religious reasons). Also bear in mind that,
while attendance is important, mere attendance is not enough to fulfill the participation
requirement. Lastly, remember that, in the event of an absence, it is the responsibility of the student
to obtain class notes from a colleague.

Presentations: Every student will be assigned at least one of the scheduled readings on which to
give a 10-15 minute. This assignment will consist in presenting a 2-page text especially prepared for
the occasion; in other words, the presentation is not to be improvised.
Exams: Both midterm and final exams are in-class compositions.
