Spanish

Spanish 6

Students will choose either an exploratory experience (4.5 weeks) or a semester experience (18 weeks) for their 6th grade Spanish class.  Both experiences are intended to meet each student at their comfort level with the language.  Students should base choices on their interest and desire to learn Spanish; not on prior experience.

  • Exploratory experience:  During this time, students will use flipped learning and self-paced programming to continue their study of the Spanish language.  Students will engage in mini-conversations on a daily basis to practice their conversational skills and participate in grammar lessons to learn more about nouns, articles, subject pronouns, and AR verbs.
  • Semester experience:  During this time, students will use flipped learning and self-paced programming to continue their study of the Spanish language.  Students will engage in daily mini-conversations to practice their conversational skills and participate in grammar lessons to learn about nouns, articles, subject pronouns, verb conjugation, and adjective agreement.  Later in the course students will use what they have learned about the language in order to practice their communication skills while reading a short novel intended for novice readers.

Spanish 7

Students who choose Spanish have two options for 7th grade.  The options include either a quarter experience (9 weeks) or a semester experience (18 weeks).  Both experiences are intended to meet each student at their comfort level with the language.  Students should base choices on their interest and desire to learn Spanish; not on prior experience.

  • Quarter experience:  During this time, students will use flipped learning and self-paced programming to continue their study of the Spanish language.  Students will engage in mini-conversations on a daily basis to practice their conversational skills and participate in grammar lessons that are dependent upon their prior experiences with Spanish.
  • Semester experience:  During this time, students will use flipped learning and self-paced programming to continue their study of the Spanish language.  Students will engage in daily mini-conversations to practice their conversational skills and participate in grammar lessons dependent upon their prior experiences with Spanish.  Later in the course students will use what they have learned about the language in order to practice their communication skills while reading a short novel intended for novice speakers.

Spanish 8

Students who choose Spanish will have Spanish every day for the entire year.  Programming will be personalized dependent upon prior experience with the language.  In addition to skill development, students will be applying their skills with the target language while reading a novel intended for novice speakers.  Depending on student progress, there is a potential to earn high school credit.

French

French 7

Seventh grade French is a nine-week introduction to the language.  In it, students will learn to greet others, describe themselves and others, state their feelings, the date, the weather, and likes and dislikes.  We will cover basics such as colors, numbers to 100, and the alphabet.  At the end of the coruse, each student will do a presentation on a French speaking country.

French 8

This is a full year of French that introduces the student to the French language and to French-speaking countries. Emphasis is placed on building a basic, everyday vocabulary as well as studying basic grammatical points. Attention is also paid to developing speaking, reading, and writing skills. The culture and customs of the French-speaking worlds are also studied. This is an academically challenging and rigorous course equivalent to the Pulaski High School Level I French. Students who successfully complete this course are eligible for French II at Pulaski High School.
