Composition Instructions: Spanish 103 Basic information: There will be three (3) in-class compositions over the course of this semester. These compositions will take place on the following dates: - 1 st composition: February 22 - 2 nd composition: March 24 - 3 rd composition: April 18 Following each in-class composition, your instructor will score your work and mark errors with a series of codes. These codes will explain the type of error (the list can be found at the end of this document). Once you receive your in-class composition back with the marked codes, you will have one (1) week to rewrite your composition, fixing all vocabulary, language (grammar), and organizational mistakes. The rewritten version is mandatory and must be handed in to your instructor on the designated date. The first (in-class) version of the composition will be worth 70% of the grade, and the second (typed) version will be worth 30%. The day before: Instructors will inform students what the vocabulary topic and required grammar point of the composition will be the day before in class. Students will be given 5 minutes of class time to brainstorm, in an effort to help them prepare for the composition the following day. What to bring on the day of the in-class composition: - Pen/pencil - English-Spanish dictionary (physical) - Students will not be allowed to use any other resource, including (but not limited to): - Course textbook - Verb chart/book - Any electronic device Breakdown of the in-class composition day: The instructor will distribute a piece of paper to each student at the start of class. This paper will include the prompt as well as space to write the composition. Extra pages on which to write will be kept at the front of the room. Students will have fifty (50) minutes to write their compositions. Students will not be allowed to speak to classmates or ask their instructors any questions during this time. Structure: Each composition prompt will indicate the number of paragraphs that need to be included as well as the minimum number of sentences that need to be included in each paragraph. Failure to meet these requirements will affect the organizational component of the grade and may also affect the content component (if not enough information is included to successfully answer the prompt).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
