Alternatives to the Traditional Intermediate Spanish Courses in Community Colleges.
de Lama, Sonia
The alternatives to the traditional intermediate or second-year courses in community colleges are three student-centered plans designed for colleges with low or high enrollment of second-year Spanish students. Plan A is a two-year program of Spanish instruction. It consists of Spanish 101 and 102 and eight four-week minicourses, including two different grammar minicourses during the first four weeks of instruction. Plan B is a two-, two-and-a-half-, or three-year program. It includes Spanish 101, Spanish 102, and also eight four-week minicourses. These courses may be taken during two, three, or four semesters. Students may choose from 12 different minicourses. Plan C is an accelarated one-, one-and-a-half, or two-year program. It enables students to complete Spanish 103 and Spanish 104 in one or more semesters. They could take both courses simultaneously. Students receive credit on completion of eight four-week minicourses. Charts for each plan and a list of suggested minicourses are included. These alternatives may be offered in other languages.
