Dramatic growth in international commerce and travel has increased the need for Americans to communicate with other nations. Government, business, and industry all need people with world language skills. The study of another country and its language broadens cultural insights. Students gain a better perspective of our language and heritage. The World Language Department offers four-year sequences in German and Spanish, and a four-year sequence in Latin. Students may elect one or more languages.
In this first-year course, the student begins to develop listening comprehension and speaking abilities needed for normal conversation and will read simple, non-technical material. Correct writing with proper emphasis on grammar is stressed. The student will begin to acquire a sensitivity to the value systems and culture of the Spanish-speaking peoples.
In this course students continue to build upon skills attained in Spanish 1. More complicated grammar structures, including the past tenses are presented. Students are expected to produce more of the target language with a higher degree of accuracy. Their study of the culture of Spanish-speaking countries is also furthered.
UNITS OF STUDYThese courses are aligned with the World Languages Performance Indicators for Stage 1 and 2 in Starndard Area 12.1: Communication in a Target Language.
In the Spanish 1 and 2 courses I place a strong emphasis on speaking and writing! Students learn to communicate in complete sentences both orally and in writing by answering questions and presenting personal information. Every day we write in our journals, and the students take turns giving a daily presentation to begin the class. Students will complete formal assessments during and after each concept or unit of study. Homework, which provides a valuable opportunity for practicing and expanding the concepts we are learning in class, will be ten percent of the students' grade. Students will also take mid-term and final exams.
