Mary Beth Ricci

Teaching style
I use an eclectic approach in teaching - a combination of grammar, lecture, discussion, and communicative group and paired activities. I use quite a bit of the target language in class.

Homework, participation and attendance
Grades are determined by one-third average of attendance, participation, and homework

There is homework assigned for each class period and a quiz is given each class period. There are no makeup exams.

Tests and quizzes
Grades are determined by:

  • 1/3 average of quizzes
  • 1/3 average of mid-term and final

Background and other interests
I love to travel and have been to Italy, Mexico, Spain, Puerto Rico, Nicaragua, Honduras, Brazil, France, Switzerland, Iceland, Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Trinidad, Martinique, Tortola,  Antigua. St. Thomas, St. Marten, Barbados, Tobago, and Canada.
