Spanish Curriculum, Junior and Senior High School.
Trujillo, Lorenzo A.; And Others
The curriculum guide for Spanish outlines the general and specific objectives and content of the courses to be offered in the Jefferson County (Colorado) public junior and senior high schools. An introductory section describes the district's comprehensive and second language education goals and philosophy, summarizes the findings of the President's Commission on Foreign Languages and International Studies, discusses psychological and neurological studies, and reports Scholastic Aptitude Test scores concerning second language education. The first section provides a mission statement, outlines the targeted language and cultural skills, and recommends general instructional strategies. Subsequent sections contain outlines of each course (including objectives, vocabulary, situations, situational and structural goals, and instructional strategies for specific areas of linguistic content), notes on language testing, vocabulary, verb tables, games, and recipes.
