Course Description: Span 321-322Y ADVANCED GRAMMAR, CONVERSATION AND COMPOSITION. Spanish IV is a college-level course offered in partnership with Kenyon College and designed to give advanced students the opportunity to refine and increase their abilities to write, read, and speak Spanish. The course will have a strong emphasis on oral proficiency to strengthen the skills mastered during Spanish I, II, and III. It is a year long fastpace course stressing effective communication through listening, reading, writing and speaking Spanish. The content of this course will include more advanced language structure, vocabulary and idiomatic expressions, with focus on refining all the previously mentioned skills. Cultural and literary readings from major Spanish and Latin-American authors, and selected Spanish-language films are among the materials on which class discussion and assignment may be centered to enrich the social and cultural concepts of different Spanish speaking countries. The reading selections will aid in the specific skills being practiced. A grammar review, focused mainly on typical areas of difficulty, will be included. Textbooks: The following text will be used on a routine basis to aid in advancing students skills in reading comprehension, vocabulary building, grammar and structure.

Attendance and Participation: Learning a language takes practice and the best practice is to listen and use the target language whenever possible. Class time is the best time to practice the target language, so active participation is vital to the success of the students’ learning of a foreign language. For this reason, students will receive a language practice grade. Failure to participate in any activity will result in a deduction of points from class work/homework grade. In addition, because language skills are built continuously on a day to day basis, there will be Pop Quizzes to evaluate the students’ preparedness with the current and past information. Extra Credit: Extra Credit will not be offered in this course. Late Work: Late work will not be accepted and the student will earn a zero or F for the assignment. Grades: Students’ grades will be the result of regular daily participation, class work, homework, writings and speaking assignments, projects, quizzes and regular tests. Remember that pop quizzes will be also used to assess preparedness. The compositions will be graded on content (30pts), organization and communication strategies (30 pts), and grammar and specific vocabulary to the units studied (40 pts) for a total of 100 pts per essay. The oral presentations will be graded on extemporaneous speaking (20 pts), pronunciation (30 pts), depth of discussion (20pts), use of grammar and vocabulary (30 pts) for a total of 100 pts per presentation. The net worth of the grades will be as follow: Class Work and Participation

Final Exam: The final exam at the end of the year will be comprehensive and it will cover the vocabulary, grammar, structure and culture previously covered. Discipline: The school’s discipline policy, including tardiness, cheating and plagiarism, will be enforced. Please refer to the Student Handbook for policies concerning all school rules. Academic Honesty Avoid plagiarism or the theft of someone else’s ideas, opinions or works. It can easily be avoided by giving credit to the author’s works by putting everything from his/her text in quotations. Also, be careful that you are not just rearranging the author’s words when paraphrasing, but rather carefully choose and use your own words instead. Course Syllabus: This syllabus is divided into weeks of study. However, due to the complexity of studying a foreign language it is tentative and subject to change.
