In Spanish IV students will deepen their interest and love for the acquisition of the Spanish language. This class will be held to high standards in class preparedness, oral presentations, discussion and analysis of literature. Students will speak in Spanish at all times in order to ensure that every opportunity is allowed for students to improve their listening and speaking skills. Their ultimate goal is to be able to competently communicate, both orally and in writing, with a native speaker.
Throughout the year students will read, discuss, and analyze various kinds of literature such as short stories, informational articles, poems, and plays. We will also learn about current events and cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world. Most of the class will be lectures with class discussions supporting our study of the literature. We will also take field trips to explore the cultural aspects of Spanish-speaking communities. To create an awareness of the Spanish-speaking world, students will be required to produce bi-weekly oral presentations on current events. Peer work and small group discussions will also take place weekly.
