We will learn cultural information and take steps to develop the basic and intermediate skills of learning language. Students should expect to practice often in and outside of the classroom. We will try a variety of approaches to accomplish these goals. Technology is one of the key components to learning, so electronic devices will be used for educational practice. Students are encouraged to bring their own devices that they can use with teacher discretion.What should you expect from Advanced Level Courses?Language CoursesStudents should expect full immersion in the Spanish in speaking, listening, reading, and writing and should anticipate strengthening their interdisciplinary knowledge of other content courses in Spanish. You should expect to work independently and collaboratively at home and in the class to develop a strong base of vocabulary and skills. There are websites available for student use and it is expected that students will turn in homework class projects online. Students are encouraged to bring their own electronic device to be utilized for educational purposes in the classroom.Literature CoursesStudents should expect full immersion in Spanish in speaking, listening, reading, and writing and should anticipate strengthening their analytical skills and global awareness through literary analysis and historical studies. Students should read daily both in class and at home to fully grasp the intent of the literature and to be successful in the course. Students are encouraged to bring their own electronic device to be utilized in the class for research and educational purposes.How does a student approach an advanced level course?Here are some suggestions to help all students succeed:
All students should come to class ready to learn and never lose sight of the following:
- Prepare in advance work that is asked of you.
- Collaborate with other students.
- Come to tutorials before you get behind. If you get behind come to tutorials.
- Do not get discouraged. Learning a language has different stages and many times students feel very lost as they begin to acquire listening and speaking skills, or they may feel overwhelmed with grammar content. This is a normal feeling for students and continued practice will help them work through those feelings.
- Take notes in class.
- Use your strengths. There are 5 aspects to learning the language: communication (listening, reading, writing, speaking, and culture). Some speak well but need support in writing, others write well and need support in speaking and listening. We are here to work together to accomplish our goals.
What are the benefits of learning a World Language?:
Pre-AP and AP courses in a world language are designed to prepare students for college and build the confidence needed to be successful in high school, college, and real world experiences. Some of the advantages of learning a new language are:
• Students may receive college credit if they are successful on the AP test. Check with your college or university.
• The rigor of the AP courses put students in a position to clep out of courses at the university level.
• Pre-Ap and AP courses prepare students to be lifelong learners and successful in real world experiences.
• Learning a new language is fun and great for the brain.What do I need for class?
