As most of us know, the Spanish IV Honors program curriculum consists of very few points in a heavily weighted category making it very difficult to succeed in the class. The teachers teach us vocabulary and themes of the chapter yet the tests do not reflect what was taught in class except for an occasional vocabulary word tossed into an audio clip or passage we have to read. Additionally, there should be uniformity between all teachers in the Spanish IV Honors program to allow each student the same opportunity to succeed. If one teacher curves a test, the other teacher should curve that same exact test. These differences create advantages for students in different classes. Finally, if certain categories are weighted more heavily than others, teachers should provide more opportunities to earn points in these categories to give the student the greatest possible chance of succeeding.

There are many ways to solve these issues. Creating two categories weighted as 80% of our grade and 20% of our grades for tests and class work respectively gives students a greater chance to succeed. Additionally, practicing analyzing passages and listening to local speakers in class would benefit us greatly and prepare us for our exams. These are only a few of the ways we could change the Spanish IV Honors program into a more fair course.

If you are in Spanish IV Honors and want the school board to look into these issues please sign the petition! This is the last resort to get the board's attention after our emails and questions have failed to draw much attention. Two tests and 38 points in one category should not determine how much we have learned this semester.
