CALENDAR YEAR: 2014-2015
GRADE LEVEL: 10-12
COURSE LENGTH: 36 weeks
SUGGESTED PREPARATION: Spanish I, Spanish II, Spanish III
This fourth year of Spanish is a continuation of the first three years. The student will continue to sharpen 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, past-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.
Students understand and retain most key ideas and some supporting details when reading and listening. When reading, they acquire knowledge and new information from relatively comprehensive authentic texts. When speaking, students use strings of sentences and are more able to connect several ideas on a topic. When writing, students create simple paragraphs. They begin to apply familiar structures to new situations, choosing appropriate vocabulary for familiar topics. They frequently use culturally appropriate behavior in social situations, using some gestures and body language of the target culture. Students are generally understood by sympathetic native speakers who are used to dealing with foreigners.
