    Hello, and thank you for viewing my page! My name is Troy Drinkard, and I am very happy to be teaching all levels of Spanish at Greenwood High School. I majored in Spanish and English at North Greenville University and lived and studied in Costa Rica in 2009. In 2017 I received my Master of Education from Anderson University. Please contact me via E-mail at any time regarding class, and I will get back to you as soon as possible.
     
    Rules for my classroom:
    1. Respect other people and their property.
    2. Stay in your seat unless otherwise instructed.
    3. Do not speak out during lecture time.
    4. Maintain appropriate dress, language, and conduct.
     
    Grading system
    40% - Minor (Quizzes)
    40% - Major (Interpersonal, Presentational, and Interpretive tests)
    20% - Content (Homework and Daily Assignments)
     
    Students will have one to three quizzes per week.
    Major assignments include written tests, interpretive tasks (reading a work in Spanish and answering questions based on it), interpersonal tasks (a dialogue with another student), and presentational tasks (given alone to the class). All students will be expected to read, demonstrate understanding, write, and speak at their desk or in front of the class throughout the course.
     
    Student Materials
    Each student is expected to have a Chromebook, ID card, dry erase marker, pen or pencil, notebook, and book for every class.
