Spanish Honors 4 has a
concurrent enrollment option through Southwest Minnesota State University’s College Now program.
In this course students will continue to
use and develop their skills in reading, writing, listening, and speaking in
Spanish in addition to deepening their cultural competency. This class focuses
on real communication in meaningful contexts such as personal relationships, urban life, media influences, generations in
movement, natural resources, ideas and their values, work perspectives, and science
and technology. For this college
Spanish class, we will be using the textbook Imagina (Vista Higher
Learning) and its accompanying supersite, which are also used to teach
intermediate Spanish classes at Southwest Minnesota State University.
Using individual, pair, and group work
students will access authentic media to gain a comprehensive understanding of
the themes explored. This course will help students use the Spanish language as
a lifelong tool and/or to prepare them for a successful transition into a
