1st Quarter Language and Cultural Connections Log


Spanish 1 students will need 1 connection & reflection per week. Reflections are very important. Reflections
tell about YOU what you think, how you feel, what you learned, etc. They give personal insight about YOU.
Also, make a list of new words that you learned. You will not receive credit for activities without personal
reflections. If you need more space, please attach a separate sheet of paper. Logs are due every Tuesday. You
must turn in your log by Friday to receive any credit. If you do not have your log with you one week, you may
write on a piece of paper and turn that in. Later staple it to your log. All work on the language and cultural
connections logs is to be completed OUTSIDE of class. The log will comprise the majority of your culture
grade for this quarter. You can access it electronically on the blog if you need another copy.
Date(s) Activity(ies)
Detailed explanation of what you
did. Include times, places and
specific details. Photos are good
too.

Reflection
What I think of the experience,
what I learned, how I felt, what
surprised me etc. New words
you learned.

Suggestions for activities you may choose from these or choose your own but you will not get credit over and
over again for the same activity. You may do an activity no more than twice for credit. You are not expected to
be able to translate the entire activity. The goal is to get the gist of what you are seeing, hearing or reading.
