ACADEMIC SPANISH II COURSE PHILOSOPHY
As members of a dynamic, technology-driven global society, students gain a deeper perspective of the world through the study of other languages. Through this study, students can apply language skills and concepts to analyze, assess, and criticize interdisciplinary topics. Students can engage in meaningful written and spoken conversations at the intermediate level in order to make connections, comparisons, and develop a deeper understanding of the Spanish language and culture. The intermediate level of language study cultivates an awareness that language and culture are interrelated, which is a fundamental element of 21st century citizenship.
COURSE DESCRIPTION Throughout Academic Spanish II, students will gain knowledge of Spanish language structures and vocabulary to communicate about real life situations in three modes of communication. During this course, students will develop knowledge of fundamental language structures and vocabulary through relevant, engaging and comprehensible interactions. Students taking this course will expand and improve their reading, writing, speaking, and listening skills in Spanish and will increase proficiency. In addition to learning a foreign language, students will gain a global perspective through the study of culture. By the end of the course, learners will be able to apply their language skills to engage in meaningful conversations regarding community and culture by comparing and contrasting life in the United States with that of the Spanish-speaking world.
COURSE GOALS CG1: Students will interact using authentic texts and complex tenses in order to engage in conversations with deeper meanings. CG2: Students will apply their language skills to interpret authentic readings, conversations, and written tasks. CG3: Students will analyze the varied cultures of the Spanish-speaking world.

UNIT LEARNING SCALE
4 In addition to the score 3 performances, the student can use the learned skills and vocabulary in new and spontaneous/unrehearsed situations and/or the student can apply concepts learned in class to aid other students who are at a lower proficiency level to communicate key personal information with others.
The student can: compare and contrast their daily routines and activities to students in Spanish-speaking countries;
describe their daily routines and activities using present tense and reflexive verbs in speaking and writing;
differentiate between reflexive, non-reflexive, and stem-changing verbs and use them accurately;
describe what they do at a specific time of day using "a las" in speaking and writing;
describe what they have to do using "tener que" in speaking and writing;
use the" ir + a" construction to describe activities they are going to do in speaking and writing;
engage in short conversations, ask and answer questions, and make statements from real-life situations which may take place face-to-face or electronically.
The student sometimes needs assistance from a teacher and/or makes minor mistakes in successfully communicating similarities and differences about their daily routines and those of other students in Spanish-speaking countries through:
recalling vocabulary describing daily routines and activities;
using the present tense and reflexive verbs;
recalling present tense grammatical structures such as telling time, using "ir a" and "tener que";
recognizing reflexive vs. non-reflexive verbs;
recalling stem-changing verbs and their uses.
