Course Description - Spanish 2

FS301S1/FS301S2 - Fine/App Arts Credit=1.0
OUS: Yes -  NCAA: Yes -  Fine & Applied Arts: Yes -  Grade Level: 10-12
Prerequisite: Successful completion of Spanish 1

 This is an advanced beginner's course for the student who has completed one year of high school Spanish.  Activities will focus on reinforcing the four language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening. The student will be able to satisfy partially the requirements of basic communicative exchanges by relying heavily on learned utterances but occasionally expanding these through simple recombinations of their elements. Can ask questions or make statements involving learned material. Shows signs of spontaneity although this falls short of real autonomy of expression. Speed continues to consist of learned utterances rather than of personalized situationally adapted ones. Vocabulary centers on areas such as basic objects, places, and most common kinship terms. Pronunciation may still be strongly influenced being understood even by sympathetic interlocutors. Listening, reading, and writing proficiency will be slightly higher.

Realidades 1 TextbookMastery Items

Certain core concepts are extremely important for students to master completely.   You can't do math very well if you don't know the difference between "+" and "-".  You can't do Spanish well unless you know the core ideas either.

I always say that students should know these items "backwards, forwards, and in their sleep."  They will be given multiple opportunities to pass.  Their course grade will be an I (Incomplete) until they have mastered both tests at 100%.  Spelling (including accent
