DESCRIPTION
This course surveys the principal variations of Latin American, Peninsular and African Spanish as well
as the use of Spanish in the digital era. Students will develop basic analytic tools including sound
patterns in the different Spanish dialects and the aspects of language across space and time. These
tools are used to explore Spanish variants and the interplay of grammatical, social, and the ethnic
groups that have shaped them.
The instructional goals of the course will advance a critical understanding of issues related to
diversity within the Spanish language and how to think about ethnicity as global citizens. The focus
of the course will be on writing argumentative and expository essays on topics related to Spanish as
a global language and the Hispanic/Latino diverse backgrounds.
METHODOLOGY
This course aims at introducing the Spanish language and the Spanish-speaking culture across the
world using task-based instruction. Students will learn through readings, ICON discussions, and
debates about the dynamic usage of Spanish around the world and the linguistic varieties of Spanish
spoken globally. Students will study Spanish as a transnational language through collaborative
activities such as blogs, group projects and in-class debates. The activities will primary focus on
content. These will involve decision-making and problem solving strategies giving students
opportunities to use Spanish for real purposes in social and cultural contexts. Students will know about
the proliferation of Spanish throughout history and the mechanisms that are making Spanish one of
the top three languages worldwide. The weight of the course will be on writing, specifically
argumentative writing, but it will also focus on target comprehension, strategic reading, language
analysis and interpretation. General topics include: Prehispanic cultures, Spanish colonization of the
Americas, Latin American governments, Hispanophone art, music and literature, and Spanish
speakers around the world and in the US.
At the completion of this course, students will have:
1. Learned about the development and current status of Spanish as a global language
2. Learned about the linguistic varieties of Spanish in the Americas, Asia, Africa and Europe
3. Learned how to read and use Spanish resources over the Internet
4. Participated actively on different platforms using Spanish
5. Improved writing skills through argumentative and expository essays
6. Improved speaking skills through debates, discussions and presentations about the crosscultural perspective of the Spanish-speaking world

STUDENT RESPONSIBILITIES AND COURSE ACTIVITIES


Most of each class meeting will consist of class discussion or writing activities. This means that you
must listen attentively to what others say. You will work closely with your colleagues in preparing and
revising compositions and other writing assignments. Working often in groups of two or more you
will read aloud, revise, and correct your classmates work, and offer constructive criticism on all the
writing done for class. You are encouraged to express your opinions and ask questions during class
sessions, since you will be evaluated in these activities. Active participation is important in this
course, for both your academic progress, and your cultural and linguistic development.
For a more general summary of student responsibilities you should consult the section of the
Student Handbook cited here: http://clas.uiowa.edu/students/handbook/student-rightsresponsibilities#responsibilities

GUIDELINES FOR WRITTEN WORK


1. Compositions and other written assignments must be typed in 12-point font, double-spaced, with
1-inch margins. Recommend font: Times New Roman, Arial, Cambria or Garamond.
2. Assignments and/or compositions of more than one page must be stapled together.
3. Assignments are to be turned in at the beginning of class on the day they are due (put them on my
desk as you enter). Assignments will not be accepted late except in extreme and unusual
circumstances: (documented and medically assisted illness, representing the University in a
University-sponsored function, observance of religious holiday in a faith of which you are an affirmed
member). Assignments which are not turned in are counted as zero. Plan ahead. Printer failure,
unavailable printers, or other mechanical or metaphysical obstructions do not alter your deadlines.

No credit will be given for written assignments that do not


meet the criteria above.

ACADEMIC MISCONDUCT/ CODE OF ACADEMIC HONESTY


Guidelines regarding academic honesty for this course follow those set by the University of Iowa,
which students should consult at the following website:
http://clas.uiowa.edu/students/handbook/academic-fraud-honor-code . According to College of
Liberal Arts and Sciences guidelines, plagiarism and cheating may result in your grade being lowered
or in other penalties. You should refer to the "Code of Academic Honesty" in the Student Handbook
(cited above). Please note that written work done outside of class, such as the Resmenes and Ensayos
are expected to be your own work, without the help of others. This includes tutors. Writing that
appears to be primarily the work of someone else will not be accepted. To clarify what kind of help is
permissible on written work and what kind is not, refer to the following lists. Share this list with a
tutor if you have one, so that there are no misunderstandings about the policy. If you have questions,
please ask me.
YOU MAY:
Consult with me during my office hours.
Write notes or questions on your drafts about particular doubts or problems with
expressions that you may have.
Get help from a friend or tutor with the planning of your composition
Consult dictionaries and grammar reference sources.
Consult with tutors in the Spanish Writing Center.
Use a Spanish spell-check (e.g. with a program such as Microsoft Word).
YOU MAY NOT:
Ask a friend or your tutor to read your composition and correct the errors.
Turn in a composition that someone else has written or helped you write, in whole or in
part.
Use any software that translates your writing from English to Spanish.
Submit as your own any work in part or in whole written by someone else.

by e-mail too and I will respond within 48 hours.
NOTE: University policy specifies that students are responsible for all official correspondences sent to
their standard University of Iowa e-mail address (@uiowa.edu). Students should check this account
frequently. (Operations Manual, III.II.15. 2. k.11.) I may occasionally send a communication to
everyone (a change in an assignment, extra reference material), and those will go to your uiowa.edu
address. You will be held responsible for that information.
PARTICIPATION, PREPARATION, AND GROUP ACTIVITIES
Since this class will mainly function as writing and editing workshop, you must come to class fully
prepared. This means that you must read and complete whatever is assigned on the courses agenda
for the stated day and be ready to use this material in classroom activities. Reading and responding
to anothers work is a serious and valuable task, and the final grade on the course will depend on your
preparation and how you work collectively. Lack of preparation, carelessness, apathy, or any other
behavior that interferes with the objectives of the course cannot be tolerated, and is an injustice not
only to yourself but to your classmates. You should expect to spend two hours per week per credit
hour in out-of-class preparationin other words, in a three-credit-hour course standard outside class
preparation is SIX hours per week.
Participation criteria:
1. Being present for every class meeting
2. Coming to class fully prepared
3. Listening attentively to what is being said by all participants
4. Making comments, asking questions, showing enthusiasm in activities
5. Asking for help from other students, professor, tutor, or the Spanish Writing Center
6. Applying strict critical attention when evaluating or commenting on someone elses work
7. Speaking Spanish at all times
Participation assessment:
Each day your instructor will evaluate your class participation and record score. Participation is an
important component of your final grade and an asset to your learning. If you miss class, no
participation points can be awarded for that day, therefore you will receive a zero. You cannot makeup class participation. Daily participation is scored in the following manner:
2 points
Student arrived on time, attended the entire class period without disruption.
Student was prepared for class, participated in activities and completed textbook or class
work.
Student brought his/her require books and materials.
1 point
Student was not prepared for class, did not participate in activities or complete textbook or
class work
Student arrived late or left class early

0 points
Student was absent or disruptive (talked to others while the instructor was teaching, did
homework for other classes, kept texting or checking messages/ cyber social networks, slept
or did not follow the university or classroom policies).
Absences: You are allowed three unexcused absences. Every unexcused absence thereafter will result
in your course grade being lowered by ten points. Three late arrivals add up to one absence.

Excused absences are those documented absences due to illness, attendance at family
weddings or funerals, or official representation of the university. The student must
provide documentation (doctors note, funeral program, coachs letter) in the next
class meeting, if not it will be considered an unexcused absence. These will not affect
your grade significantly, but you will lose the class participation points for each day
you are absent.

Unexcused absences are due to reasons other than those listed above. If you have
minor illness and miss class, but do not seek medical expertise and cannot provide a
medical note, the absence is considered unexcused. Vacation travel, absences due to
student organizations, jobs, house/vehicle maintenance is not excused. Similarly, if
the ringing of your phone disrupts the class, if you text message or use any of your
electronic devices during class you will have an unexcused absent for that day.

Partial attendance is considered each time you arrive more than 15 minutes late or
leave the class early. This will be counted as an unexcused absence.

Late arrivals--- Every three late arrivals will be counted as one unexcused absence.

University policy requires that students be permitted to make up examinations missed


because of illness, mandatory religious obligations, or other unavoidable
circumstances or University activities. In this course, examinations refers to quizzes,
compositions and presentations. ICON Discussions, participation and in-class essays
are excluded from this policy.

STUDENT RIGHTS AND CONCERNS


I will do my best to address concerns or complaints you may have about this course and the
class environment. Please let me know about any incident or anything within the class that
may have made you uncomfortable. If, after talking to me, your concerns are not satisfactorily
resolved, you should contact the Departmental Executive Officer (Chair) of the Department of
Spanish and Portuguese, Phillips Hall (111 Phillips Hall, 335-2244). More information on these
procedures is available on-line in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences Student Academic
Handbook
http://www.clas.uiowa.edu/students/handbook/
and
at
http://www.sexualharassment.uiowa.edu/ (please see more information about the
Universitys sexual harassment policy at the end of this overview). You have the right to expect
a classroom environment that enables you to learn, including modifications if you have a
disability. Please let me know during the first week of the semester if you have a condition
that may require such modifications. The policy for such accommodation can be found at
http://www.uiowa.edu/~sds/.
In severe weather class members should seek shelter in the innermost part of the building, if
possible at the lowest level, staying clear of windows and free -standing expanses. The class
will continue if possible when the threat is over.

The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences governs class policies on matters such as
requirements, grading, and sanctions for academic dishonesty. Students wishing to add or
drop this course after the official deadline must receive the approval of the Dean of the
College of Liberal Arts and Sciences.
You have a responsibility to the rest of the class---and to the instructor---to help create a
classroom environment where all may learn. At the most basic level, this means that you will
respect the other members of the class and the instructor, and treat us with the courtesy you
expect to receive in return.
Sexual Harassment Policy
What is Sexual Harassment? Sexual harassment occurs when somebody says or does something
sexually related that you dont want them to say or do, regardless of who it is. For example:
Talking about their sexual experiences.
Asking you to talk about yours.
Telling sexual jokes, innuendoes, and stories, or comments (about your clothes or body, or
someone elses).
Touching you, threatening you, and/or pressuring or forcing you to have sex - including in
exchange for a job, raise, to retain a job, get a better grade, or special treatment or to escape
physical violence.
Emergency: In case of emergency (e.g., sexual assault) or other types of harassment, contact
the 24-hour Rape Crisis Line at 335-6000 or dial 911.
Sexual Harassers: Sexual harassers can include (but arent limited to) professors, teaching assistants,
research assistants, supervisors, co-workers, classmates, other students, acquaintances, friends,
partners, dates, and strangers. A sexual harasser may be anyone who automatically has power over
you because of their position of employment, or other people who do not have an official position but
try to take power and control over you by threats, coercion, force or other deliberate actions of a
sexual nature.
What makes someone a sexual harasser isnt based on what they do for a living, their status as a high
profile person, or where they hang out? What makes someone a sexual harasser is behavior, (including
words and actions) that uses sex to be disrespectful, hurtful, embarrassing, humiliating, intimidating
or frightening to you or another person.
Visit the sexual harassment awareness site at http://www.sexualharassment.uiowa.edu/ for
definitions, assistance, and the full University policy.
Overview
Department of Spanish & Portuguese
Required syllabus information, College of Liberal Arts and Sciences
1. A student seeking academic accommodations should first register with Student Disability Services
and then meet privately with the course instructor to make parti cular arrangements. See
www.uiowa.edu/~sds/ for more information.
2. Course policies are governed by the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences (CLAS) and are applicable
to all students in the course, regardless of their college of enrollment. Below are abridged versions of
relevant policies; more specific information on these policies is available on -line in the Colleges
Student Academic Handbook (http://www.clas.uiowa.edu/students/handbook/
a. Student rights and responsibilities
All students in the College have specific rights and responsibilities. You have the right to adjudication
of any complaints you have about classroom activities or instructor actions. You also have the right to

expect a classroom environment that enables you to learn, including modifications if you have a
disability.
Your responsibilities to this class and to your education as a whole include attendance and
participation. You are also expected to be honest and honorable in your fulfillment of assignments
and in test-taking situations. You have a responsibility to the rest of the class and to the instructor to
help create a classroom environment where all may learn. At the most basic level, this means that you
will respect the other members of the class and the instructor, and treat them with the courtesy you
hope to receive in turn.
b. Academic fraud, dishonesty, and cheating
The College of Liberal Arts and Sciences considers academic fraud, dishonesty, and cheating serious
academic misconduct. All forms of plagiarism and any other activities that result in a student
presenting work that is not really his or her own are considered academic fraud. Academic fraud
includes these and other misrepresentations: presentation of ideas from any sources you do not
credit; the use of direct quotations without quotation marks and without credit to the source;
paraphrasing information and ideas from sources without credit to the source; failure to provide
adequate citations for material obtained through electronic research; downloading and s ubmitting
work from electronic databases without citation; participation in a group project which presents
plagiarized materials; submitting material created/written by someone else as one's own, including
purchased papers.
Cheating on examinations and other work also interferes with your own education as well as the
education of others in your classes. Academic cheating includes all of the following, and any other
activities that give a student an unfair advantage in course work.
---copying from someone else's exam or work;
---allowing someone to copy or submit your work as his/her own;
---accepting credit for a group project without doing your share;
---submitting the same paper in more than one course without the knowledge and approval
of the instructors involved;
---using notes, text messaging, cell phone calls, or other materials during a test or exam
without authorization;
---not following the guidelines specified by the instructor for a "take home" test or exam.
The minimal penalty for academic dishonesty will be a grade of F (0%) on the assignment or exam,
with the possibility for more severe penalties as individual cases may merit. All cases of academic
fraud will be reported to the departmental DEO and to the Associate Dean for Unde rgraduate
Programs and Curriculum, who enforce the appropriate consequences.
c. Procedures for complaints A student who has a complaint about the course should attempt to
resolve the matter with the instructor first. If the complaint is not resolved to t he student's
satisfaction, or if the student feels that s/he cannot directly approach the instructor, then the student
should go to the departmental executive officer (DEO) for the Department of Spanish & Portuguese,
Prof. Mercedes Nio-Murcia. Appointments with Prof. Nio-Murcia may be made with the secretary
in the main office of Phillips Hall (111 Phillips Hall, 335-2244).
3. Electronic Communication: University policy specifies that students are responsible for all official
correspondences sent to their standard University of Iowa e-mail address (@uiowa.edu). Students
should check their account frequently. (Operations Manual, III.II.15. 2. k.11.)
4. [Some of the policies relating to this course (such as drop deadline) are governed by its
administrative home, the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences, 120 Schaeffer Hall]
