Section Description

Spanish 052 is designed to integrate all of the knowledge attained in the previous levels with a particular emphasis on honing students' ability to interact with others in both written and spoken Spanish through collaborative group activities. In order to engage in both written and spoken interaction in the online environment, we will use a variety of tools including two different types of discussion board, a video upload and commenting platform (Flipgrid), a videoconferencing platform (MS Teams), video tutorials provided by the instructor, and quizzes in Blackboard. All the tools used will be free for students except for the textbook, which is titled "Imagina" and is available digitally through the publisher, Vista Higher Learning (vhlcentral.com), if you haven't already purchased it for SPAN 051. As part of the course we will review grammar points such as: object pronouns, imperfect/preterite, present perfect, conditional, future, and present subjunctive, and learn: the past perfect, the imperfect subjunctive, present perfect subjunctive, and passive voice. In addition, we will gain practice in developing reading comprehension strategies through study of short literary works, essays and video from the textbook, as well as additional materials from other sources the instructor may provide. SPAN 052 will be taught entirely in Spanish. By the end of the course you will be able to: 1. Compose and revise written assignments in present and past time frames while expressing personal opinions; 2. Discuss texts using critical reflection; 3. Converse about social and cultural topics in all major time frames; 4. Indicate a comprehension of Spanish in personal and social contexts through verbal and written responses; 5. Recognize and discuss some of the major historical events and cultural aspects of the Spanish-speaking world.

Section Expectation

The course will be mostly asynchronous but in order to refine grammatical understanding, students will have six one-hour synchronous virtual class sessions. These will be offered at different times of day to ensure flexibility for students with different schedules. In addition, students will conduct six synchronous videoconferencing meetings in Teams, at mutually agreed-upon times in groups of 3, to discuss videos and texts from the course in spontaneous conversation.


Grades will be based on attendance and participation in the synchronous virtual classes, participation in the Teams small-group meetings, assignments, Blackboard quizzes, a final composition, and a final project.
