Spanish 110 -Group Projects

You will complete three group projects in this course, in chapters 2, 4 and 6. These three group projects count as 15% of your final grade.

Group projects are completed in groups of three students, in class, on the dates posted on the course calendar.

Group projects are completed collaboratively, which means that all the students in the group are responsible for all the work and will therefore receive the same grade.

If you cannot complete a group project on the due dates because of a justified reason, you may complete the project individually. You need to contact your teacher as soon as possible to discuss  alternatives.
