  • Before moving on to Chapter 10, reflect upon what you can do with the language.  Check off all of the things on the list below that you can do.

    For any actions you cannot yet do, review the topic and seek out additional          resources such as tutoring, extra help from your instructor, online materials, etc.

    After completing this chapter, I can:

     Recall vocabulary related to vacation

     Discuss events that ocurred in the past

     Recall irregular preterite forms

     Distinguish between scenarios in which the preterite should be used, versus scenarios in which the imperfect should be used.

     

     

    ¡A reflexionar sobre los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 1.  As we are working to be our best language learners, we need to regularly check in on our progress toward our goals.  Use the questions below to reflect upon the goals you set for yourself at the beginning of the chapter. 

    My two short term goals were:

    1. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan?  In what way(s)?   What worked?  What didn’t work?

     

     

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/        _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    2. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan?  In what way(s)?  What worked?  What didn’t work?

     

     

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/        _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    My one long-term goal was:

    3. _______________________________________________________________________________

    · Did you follow your action plan?  In what way(s)?  What worked?  What didn’t work?

    · _______ I have achieved this goal/ ________ I made progress toward this goal/        _______ I have not made progress toward this goal and should make a revision to my goal or my action plan.

    What do you currently feel is your greatest strength with Spanish?  What do you attribute this success to?  Is there something you are doing in this area that you could apply to weaker areas?

     

     

    ¡A revisar los objetivos!

    Goal setting, Paso 2.  Before moving on to the next chapter, take a moment to update your goals and/or action plans.  It is okay to keep goals that you set for yourself previously if you are still    working toward them.
