High School Spanish

High School Spanish I Competency

A Premium World Language Course
1 credit
Available to Grades 9-12

Students begin their introduction to Spanish by focusing on the four key areas of world language study: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. The course represents an ideal blend of language learning pedagogy and online learning. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, multimedia cultural presentations, and interactive activities and practices which reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit.

High School Spanish II Competency

A Premium World Language Course
1 credit
Available to Grades 9-12
Prerequisite: High School Spanish I Competency

Students continue their study of Spanish by further expanding their knowledge of key vocabulary topics and grammar concepts. Students not only begin to comprehend listening and reading passages more fully, but they also start to express themselves more meaningfully in both speaking and writing. Each unit consists of a new vocabulary theme and grammar concept, reading and listening comprehension activities, speaking and writing activities, multimedia cultural presentations, and interactive activities and practices that reinforce vocabulary and grammar. There is a strong emphasis on providing context and conversational examples for the language concepts presented in each unit. Students should expect to be actively engaged in their own language learning; understand common vocabulary terms and phrases; use a wide range of grammar patterns in their speaking and writing; participate in conversations and respond appropriately to conversational prompts; analyze and compare cultural practices, products, and perspectives of various Spanish-speaking countries; and take frequent assessments by which their language progression can be monitored. By Semester 2, the course is conducted almost entirely in Spanish.

High School Spanish III Competency

A Premium World Language Course
1 credit
Available to Grades 9-12
Prerequisites: High School Spanish I Competency and High School Spanish II Competency

Students further deepen their understanding of Spanish by focusing on the three modes of communication: interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational. Each unit consists of a variety of activities which teach the students how to understand more difficult written and spoken passages, to communicate with others through informal speaking and writing interactions, and to express their thoughts and opinions in more formal spoken and written contexts. Students should expect to be actively engaged in their own language learning; use correct vocabulary terms and phrases naturally; incorporate a wide range of grammar concepts consistently and correctly while speaking and writing; participate in conversations covering a wide range of topics and respond appropriately to conversational prompts; analyze and compare cultural practices, products, and perspectives of various Spanish-speaking countries; read and analyze essential pieces of Hispanic literature; and take frequent assessments where their language progression can be monitored.

High School Spanish I Fluency

A Premium World Language Course
1 credit
Available to Grades 9-12

Students begin their introduction to Spanish with fundamental building blocks in four key areas of world language study: listening comprehension, speaking, reading, and writing. The extensive use of authentic materials (video, audio, images, or texts) allows for a contextualized and interactive presentation of the vocabulary and the linguistic structures. Students are actively engaged in completing task-based activities individually and collaboratively while formulating and testing hypotheses about different aspects of the target language. The materials and the activities engage students in such a way that they learn to develop the necessary metacognitive strategies to be successful in the processing of the authentic input and in negotiating meaning to reach mutual understanding with other speakers. Cultural information relevant to Hispanic countries and communities and cross-cultural reflections permeate the materials from beginning to end.

High School Spanish II Fluency

A Premium World Language Course
1 credit
Available to Grades 9-12
Prerequisite: High School Spanish I Fluency

Students continue learning Spanish in Spanish II by building on and expanding listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills. Frequent use of authentic videos, images, audio, and text provide greater contextualization of key learning concepts and cultural information relevant to Hispanic countries and communities. The course follows a modular design to allow for greater flexibility and pacing in both fully online and blended environments, and teachers can search for specific lessons and activities as well as authentic media. A wide range of activities engages students to continue to develop metacognitive strategies by processing authentic input in order to produce both spoken and written Spanish. Task-based projects allow for individual and collaborative creation, negotiation, and presentation within the target language.

  • Competency
    The Premium World Languages Competency courses take a traditional approach to language learning by focusing on the four key language skills: listening, speaking, reading, and writing. Students are introduced to vocabulary themes, grammar concepts, sentence structure, and culture through explicit instruction and guided, self-paced learning.

    Fluency
    The Premium World Languages Fluency courses are based on world language immersion methodology. They apply language skills practiced through observation and intuition within a context, task-based activity, or real-life theme. Proficiency is developed through media-rich activities and videos. Authentic content allows students to negotiate pathways for meaning, express spontaneous thoughts, build metacognitive skills, and acquire a deeper understanding of other cultures. These courses are more intensive and provide a greater challenge to the student; however, the hard work and dedication required to succeed in Fluency courses will pay off as students will acquire a deeper understanding of the target language and be better prepared for real world language use.
