Rationale
The study of Spanish enables students to develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes needed to
understand and communicate effectively in Spanish. Living in a culturally diverse and ever-changing
society, students also need to acquire understanding of, and positive attitudes toward, cultures that
may vary from their own. In Spanish language study, students are provided with opportunities to
recognize and learn about cultural links that affect communication in Spanish, such as social position,
gender roles, family, and age. Communicating in real-life situations helps students gain selfconfidence and develop their risk-taking, interpersonal, and critical thinking skills. Using Spanish to
create and convey meaning encourages students to discover new means of expressing their
individuality. In addition, Spanish language education helps students develop strategies for continued
learning outside the classroom and at the same time enhances their learning of first and additional
languages.

ASSESSMENT:
Please see the Performance Standards and Assessment Rubrics BEFORE you begin an assignment
or activity. FORMATIVE tasks give you a chance to practice your skills before any SUMMATIVE
activities. You will have multiple opportunities for self-assessment and together we will decide what
combination of tasks and/or activities represent most accurately your skills at each reporting period.
What are Benchmarks?
Performance Standards and Rubrics give you very concrete feedback. If there are numbers, they
reflect your SKILL LEVEL and are not necessarily “points” that I can simply add together (and then
divide) to arrive at a numerical value. The government does require me to report a percent – so how
do I do that accurately? Have a look:
•
You will receive 100% once you have MASTERED all the learning outcomes.
•
You are EXCEEDING course expectations. 98% (High), 92% (Mid), 88% (Low)
•
You are MEETING course expectations. 84% (High), 80% (Mid), 76% (Low)
•
Your Spanish oral, reading and writing skills are at BEGINNING stages. With continued
practice you’ll improve! 71% (High), 67% (Mid), 63% (Low)
•
You are NOT YET MEETING course expectations or you have not done enough practice. I am
unable to make an assessment. An “I” will be given at this time.
