Description:

This guide offers a curriculum for the Languages Other Than English instruction of Spanish students in level 2 Honors. The course is designed for students who have completed Spanish Level One successfully and have opted to further their linguistic and cultural understanding of the Spanish-speaking world at the 9th grade level. It is a bridge course for the Spanish Regents which will be taken in Level 3. In fact, many of these students will continue on to Level 4 AP and/or Spanish 4H for college credit. This course incorporates the New York State Standards and the National Standard for Languages other than English.

The curriculum encompasses authentic readings, intermediate grammar, listening comprehension, various forms of writing and extensive practice in speaking in a variety of situations. Every effort is made to provide the students with as many authentic materials/situations to familiarize them with the target language and culture. Videos, children’s stories in the target language, magazines, cartoons, TV programs and radio announcements are used to further language acquisition and cultural understanding. In addition to these materials, the LOTE department uses the Realidades text because we believe that it best prepares the students to achieve the goals of the Regents exam and the state and national standards. In addition, it provides materials and practice that will familiarize the students with the various components of the New York State Regents Exam and Spanish AP Language exam. The LOTE department uses Smartboard and Mimio Technology to provide the students with interactive exercises to enhance their learning and to provide differentiated instruction.
