Design and Architecture Senior High School
2013-2014
Spanish 1
Syllabus
Course Description:
This is a first year course for students who will be learning the Spanish language in school. If students
come from a Spanish-speaking home, and are able to comprehend - to a great extent - the spoken
language, even if they lack adequate knowledge of written, reading and the communicative aspects of
the language, they are considered Heritage Speakers and must take Spanish for Native Speakers I, or
Spanish for Native Speakers II.
This course focuses on the acquisition of communicative language competence. Attention is paid to
what the student can do with the language. Grammatical structures are presented and explained in class
to achieve communicative competence. The skills of speaking, reading, writing and listening in the
target language are developed through an ample amount of activities and extensive exposure to high
frequency spoken and written forms. The textbook program Realidades, level 1, includes a varied
amount of cultural and historical information. Students will begin to gain an understanding of the
language, the history, the music, the art, the literature, the geography, and the social/economic aspects
of the Spanish-speaking world.
Course Objectives:
By the end of the year, students should have developed oral, written, reading and listening skills with a
novice to novice high level of fluency and accuracy in the target language.
