DESCRIPTION
This course is designed to help students improve writing skills in Spanish. Students will learn formal and stylistic
concepts of the Spanish language, and will implement this knowledge through practice and exposure to different
textual genres. With an interdisciplinary approach, this writing intensive course focuses on those fields that are
useful for the future career of students of Spanish in the U.S. In addition, students will be able to develop their
critical thought and their ability to put those thoughts into writing in Spanish. Writing exercises will be designed
to promote a successful interaction of students in multilingual and multicultural environments. The course is
structured in five blocks: Block 1, Frequent Challenges and Writing Techniques (concerning spelling, expression,
and style); Block 2, Spanish for Professional Purposes; Block 3, Digital Literacy; Block 4, Spanish in Academia
(including a review of formats for research papers); and, Block 5, Creative Writing Workshop. This course fulfills
the writing requirement in the Spanish major (by completing five projects of 750 words, ten journal entries of 500
words, and a portfolio introduction of 1000 words).
As a distance learning course, SPAN 370-DL requires students to study and practice the language following the
guidance of the instructor. Students expected to read and do the exercises on their own. Questions about grammar
will be discussed on the Blackboard (Dudas) forums and during office hours. Instructor will schedule individual
online interviews with the students to discuss class progress on a regular basis. Learning a language on an online
setting requires as much work as learning in the class, along with a great amount of discipline. I strongly advise
you to set aside at least 6-10 hours per week for this course.
OBJECTIVES
 To develop different writing skills by implementing basic linguistic concepts
 To expand the students’ vocabulary and improve the use of advanced grammatical structures
 To provide students with tools and resources to solve common doubts (phonological, morphological,
syntactic, lexical, and semantic) when they are writing in Spanish
 To improve the student’s ability to develop critical thinking in Spanish
 To become aware of the notions of audience and purpose
 To learn basic concepts for writing in Spanish in the online environment
 To know different writing styles in Spanish, with especial attention to the use of written Spanish in the
U.S.
 To learn how to use the MLA/APA styles in research papers in Spanish and how compares with other
style guidelines
 To learn basic concepts of creative writing in Spanish

GENERAL RULES FOR ASSIGNMENTS
Course work must be submitted by the deadline so that the instructor can provide you with feedback and respond
to your posts on a timely basis. Deadlines for each specific type of assignment are included in the following
sections of this syllabus.
ONLINE LEARNING COMMUNITY
This course is offered completely online via Blackboard Courses (Log into http://mymason.gmu.edu, select the
Courses Tab, and the course can be found in the Course List). Each week begins on Monday and ends on Sunday.
The Weekly Modules section includes links to all materials, activities and learning goals for each given week.
They will be open for you the Friday before each given week, at 11:59PM.
In our online learning community, we must be respectful of one another. Please be aware that innocent remarks
can be easily misconstrued. Sarcasm and humor can be easily taken out of context. When communicating, please
be positive and diplomatic. I encourage you to learn more about Netiquette.
ON BLACKBOARD
In order to build a true online community, you are required to participate in Blackboard discussions and provide
feedback to your peers and instructor. There will be a weekly discussion forum for your questions about grammar,
style, etc. in which you are expected to participate. These forums, called Dudas, will be open for you to post
from Monday at 1:00AM to Thursday at 10:00PM. There is also a forum called Ask Your Instructor, which is
meant for technical and course logistics questions. Make sure you choose a subject line for your post that clearly
reflects its content. In addition, Professor Román Mendoza is available Monday at 9 am to Friday at 5 pm for
student inquiries via email or Twitter. During this 5 day period, she will respond to student inquiries within 24
hours.
ON TWITTER
Also, you are asked to have a Twitter account and tweet at least twice a week about topics related to this class.
Use the hashtag #370f14. You can use your current Twitter account or create a new one just for this course.
Write your Twitter account handle (i.e., your @xxxxx) on this table:
https://tallercreativo370.wikispaces.com/Proyecto+Twitter. For directions on how to use Twitter, follow this link:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=N7w5l8OYphA. Weekly tweets are due on Sundays by 10:00PM. The

ON ANY OTHER PLATFORM (VOLUNTARY)

PROJECTS
Students will complete and submit 5 projects on the dates specified on the schedule. Each project will focus on a
particular genre and a specific writing goal. Projects will have a minimum of 750 words and a maximum of 1000
words. All written assignments must be in Spanish, and typed in 12-point black New Times Roman font, 1 1/2spaced and margins of 1 inch. All written assignments need to include punctuation and spelling in Spanish.
Include in the document date of submission, your name, and number of words. Use your last name and name of
the assignment to name your file. Up to 5 points may be subtracted from your final grade if you do not follow
these format guidelines. Electronic copies in MS Word or any other compatible format must be submitted by the
proposed deadline. Any assignment that does not follow these guidelines will be returned and counted as a late
assignment. Late assignments will cause a reduction of 10% on the total grade of the assignment per day up to 3
“regular” days. No assignments will be accepted after the third day they are late.

SPAN 370-Fall 2014 / Prof. Román Mendoza

4

The instructor will explain the purpose and contents of the project in the Projects Section of Blackboard. On the
dates specified on the class schedule, students need to have posted the draft on Blackboard (Projects). Drafts are
mandatory and will count as 10% of the grade for each project. Drafts are due by 10:00PM on Saturdays.
Projects will focus on improving writing and style in Spanish, and will depend on the block of the course that is
being covered. Students will respond to specific assignments, avoiding summaries or repetition of ideas discussed
in class. Students need to incorporate suggestions and corrections from the instructor. The ability to summarize,
correct one’s work, and to put critical thoughts into writing is essential for this class. The final version of each
project is due on the following Wednesday by 10:00PM.
CLASS JOURNAL
Students will keep a journal in Spanish. The journal has to be written directly (no posting of Word documents,
please) on the course wiki (http://laboratoriocreativo370.wikispaces.com/). For more information on how to use
Wikispaces, follow this link: http://www.wikispaces.com/content/wiki-tour.
Students will submit a new entry every week that the class convenes post it on the course wiki by 10:00PM on
Sundays. Each entry will have a minimum of 500 words and a maximum of 800 words (please, include word
count and write directly on the wiki. Do not upload Word documents on the wiki.). Each entry will be
corrected with suggestions for improvement. The last week of classes, students need to have a final version of the
journal entries on the class wiki. Corrections have to be made directly on the wiki, and not cut and pasted from
Word. This final versions need to include corrections based on the instructor’s suggestions during the semester. A
minimum of 10 entries have to be rewritten for the portfolio.
Journal entries need to show that students are up to date with the contents of the class, and that they can relate
them to their academic background, their career, or current affairs. Critical thinking and interconnection of ideas
and disciplines are especially important in the journal. Some of the entries may respond to a specific task assigned
by the instructor. The best entries are analytical, specific and to the point, avoiding summaries or repetition of
ideas discussed in class. Drawings, pictures, movies, music, collages, or any other creative materials are welcome
as part of the journal.
You are also asked to follow 2 twitter accounts in Spanish from experts in your major field or field of interest and
include in your weekly journal entry a summary of what they tweeted during that week. The Proyecto Twitter
section on the course wiki includes more information about this project.
WEEKLY ONLINE ACTIVITIES
Every week, a series of exercises, including mini quizzes will be posted for you to complete by Friday at
10:00PM. Weekly activities will relate to the readings and videos covered during that particular week. Clarity and
effectiveness of writing, the ability to summarize, self-correction, style, and structure will be important.
WIKI-BASED PORTFOLIO
The day of the final, Thursday, December12, 2014, students will turn in and submit online the final version of
their wiki-based portfolio that must include all the class materials (projects and journal entries) corrected. The
portfolio needs to demonstrate the process of correction carried out by the student during the semester and include
a 1000-words introduction that addresses the writing process among any other topic related with the course.
