|Length: Full Year||Class Period: Wednesday, period 2, Thursday, period 2 (choose 1)|
Description: This is a fun, challenging, and very interactive high school Spanish course. While engaging in a variety of activities to promote communication in Spanish, students will learn fundamental vocabulary and grammar concepts. Students will also have exposure to other areas such as geography, history, music, and art as they pertain to the Spanish language and culture. The Realidades I textbook and workbook are very user friendly and comprehensive. Additional online activities will be provided. Everyone will be expected to speak as much Spanish as possible. In the beginning this will be limited, but as the year progresses, more and more Spanish will be spoken.
Tutor: Sue Welsh has a B.A. in Spanish and a M.A. in Secondary Education. Sue has been with CHAT since 2006. She has spent extended time in both Spain and Mexico. In her 32 years of teaching, she has taught in public, private, homeschool and corporate settings. She believes in a very interactive approach to teaching Spanish. She also believes strongly in lifelong learning, and providing students with the tools to continue their own learning once they leave the classroom. With her students, Sue speaks Spanish as much as possible. However, English is spoken when necessary. This approach creates a challenging but comfortable environment for students to experiment with the language.
