Honors Spanish Section 4
¡Bienvenidos high school students to Español I Honors!
In Español 1 Honors, students will be held to a higher academic standard.
Students must attend class on time and regularly, prepared to learn. They will be expected to go above and beyond what is being taught in a regular Español 1 course. This entails grammar topics, additional vocabulary, weekly homework, and additional cultural projects.
This course will use CI, comprehensible input by the instructor modeling the language and then allowing students several opportunities to practice. Our focus will be on reading, and listening followed by speaking to be able to express themselves.
