|SPAN 101||Spanish 1||Mr. J. Gomez||1:13 pm - 2:03 pm||MON / WED|
Spanish 1 is the first course in the series of regular Spanish classes available at the high school. It is a fast-paced introduction to the Spanish language and culture designed for Freshmen or Juniors or Seniors. The curriculum is designed to provide students with the elements necessary to understand, speak, read, and write basic Spanish.
Students will have intensive practice in each of the four domains of proficiency (listening, speaking, reading, and writing) and will learn basic structures and gain considerable practical vocabulary throughout the course. Opportunities will be given for the students to demonstrate their ability to communicate in the interpersonal, interpretive, and presentation modes.
Cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world will be addressed within each chapter of the course text, Buen Viaje, and through individual and group projects to be completed each semester.
The evaluation of students will be based upon a balanced combination of formative and summative assessments (listening, speaking, reading and writing), homework, and class participation. The majority of the course will be conducted in Spanish, and so students will be expected to use the Spanish that they know to communicate their questions and ideas at every opportunity possible.
