Spanish Curriculum Guide: Levels IV and I and IV/V Combination.
Kennedy, Dora F.; And Others
This guide, produced by teachers and students, departs from the typical approach to language study in that the courses are based neither on a sequential progression of subject matter nor on a chronological view of Latin American history. The primary objective in the planning for both levels of instruction is to develop sociocultural and literary awareness through a variety of student-centered activities. Sections of the guide include material on course descriptions, instructional materials, conversation, grammar, class projects, poetry, letter writing, community involvement, independent study, and various reference materials in English and Spanish including a professional bibliography. The scope of the course focuses on the contemporary Latin American world as it is viewed through the literature of sociology, social psychology, politics and government, economics, and contemporary literature. A functional approach is taken in the development of language skills. (RL)
