The purpose of this course is to provide students with exposure to communication and cultural standards outlined in the New York State Learning Standards for Languages Other Than English. This course supports and is aligned with the Common Core as it adheres to the four goal areas for learning languages: Cultures, Connections, Comparisons, and Communities (http://www.actfl.org/sites/default/files/pdfs/Aligning_CCSS_Language_Standards_v6.pdf ). Through cooperative learning groups and exercises students build relevant vocabulary and grammar points to facilitate Spanish speaking and writing skills.
