My Spanish Courses at Bound Brook High School for the 2016-2017 school year:
Spanish I CP:
In Spanish 1, students learn basic grammar such as verb conjugation and adjective agreement and practice the basic skills of speaking, listening, reading and writing in the present tense, with an emphasis upon correct oral and written expression and oral comprehension. Students are also introduced to various aspects of Hispanic culture in Latin American countries and in Spain as illustrated in the text and through videos and presentations, which may include historical, social and cultural topics.
*NJ Minimum Graduation Requirements state that students must take one year (5 credits) of a World Language*  
Spanish III CP: (Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Spanish II with a 70% or better and Teacher Recommendation)
This course is designed for students to build on the vocabulary and grammar skills acquired in Spanish I and II.  Through the use of audio, video, and communicative activities, and various online and technology resources, students will learn vocabulary to discuss art, leisure activities, jobs and careers, and the history of Spain and Latin America.  Grammar topics include the present perfect and the subjunctive.  Students will begin to analyze and synthesize information in the target language to create presentations, hold conversations, and write essays.
*Many four year colleges require two years or more of a World Language for admission* 
SPANISH IV HONORS: (Prerequisite; Successful Completion of Spanish III with a 70% or better and Teacher recommendation)
This course is designed for students to engage in presentational and interpersonal communication surrounding the following themes: Global Challenges, Beauty and Aesthetics, Personal and Public Identities, Family and Community, Contemporary Life, and Science and Technology. Students will analyze and synthesize information in the target languages from a variety of authentic sources (newspapers, news reports, documentaries, magazines, etc.) to create presentations, hold conversations, and write essays. Students will be responsible for a large portion of work to be done independently at home. Evaluation is based largely on class participation in discussions, debates, lectures, etc. in addition to tests, projects, and homework. 
 SPANISH LANGUAGE AP: (Prerequisite: Successful Completion of Spanish III with a 70% or better and Teacher Recommendation)
This course is designed to prepare students to take the AP Spanish Language and Culture Exam.
