FLS3010T: Span I (2014-2015)

CURRICULUM PROGRAM: Virtual School Program
CALENDAR YEAR: 2014-2015

Major Concepts/Content:

This is a beginning level course that will introduce the student to a variety of areas of language learning. In this course, the student will learn listening, speaking, reading and writing skills through activities that are based on pedagogically proven methods of foreign language instruction.

Throughout the course, students learn to express themselves using an ever increasing vocabulary, present-tense verbs, articles, and adjectives. Grammar is introduced and practiced in innovative and interesting ways with a variety of learning styles in mind.

Culture is sprinkled throughout the course in an attempt to help the learner focus on the Spanish speaking world and their culture, people, geographical locations and histories.

By the end of Level I in secondary school, students understand and present short, simple conversations and narratives within highly predictable and familiar contexts. When the text is enhanced by visual cues, students read short texts with comprehension. Students comprehend and produce vocabulary related to everyday objects and actions on familiar topics. They can interactively use short sentences, learned words, phrases, simple questions, and commands when speaking and writing, relying on visuals to enhance oral and written comprehension. When speaking, students imitate the use of culturally appropriate vocabulary, idiomatic expressions, and nonverbal behaviors modeled by the teacher or other authentic role models such as found through authentic video, TV programs, guest speakers, simple literature, and the internet.
