Scope & Sequence


This guide presents a curriculum for the Languages Other Than English instruction of Spanish students in the Level 5 Honors. The course is designed for students who have completed Spanish Level 4 Honors successfully and have opted to further their linguistic and cultural understanding of the Spanish-speaking world at the 12th grade level.  This is an intermediate to advanced level course.  It is a college level course affiliated with St. John’s University for which students may receive three college credits per semester.  This course incorporates the New York State Common Core standards and the National Standards for Languages other than English.  These standards include “The Five C’s of Foreign Language Education:” Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons and Communities. The curriculum encompasses readings, advanced grammar, listening comprehension, writing and extensive practice in speaking in a variety of situations. The Spanish 5 Honors course provides students with opportunities to exhibit their proficiency in each of the three modes of communication (Interpersonal, Interpretive, and Presentational).The curriculum centers around five essential themes to integrate language, content, and culture into an interrelated series of lessons and activities. Each theme will be explored through essential questions intended to engage learners and to guide learning activities and performance assessments. Every effort is made to provide the students with as many authentic materials/situations to familiarize them with the target language and culture.  Literary and journalistic texts, advertisements, and authentic audio materials are used to further language acquisition and cultural understanding. The LOTE department has chosen to use various textbooks that we believe will best prepare the students to achieve the goals of advancing their communication, writing and reading skills.
