Course Description: In Spanish II Honors, students will make connections to their lives and to the products, practices, and perspectives of Spanish-speaking cultures through a study of a variety of topics, including:

Throughout the study of these topics, students will continue to focus on the three modes of communication: interpretive, interpersonal, and presentational. By the end of the course, students will be able to:
- Converse with other students about the topics listed above by asking and answering appropriate questions and combining and creating with known language structures
- Interpret and understand parts of readings and video/audio clips about these topics
- Write and present about these topics
In each unit, students will complete a round of summative Integrated Performance Assessments (IPAs), including an interpretive reading or listening assessment, a spontaneous interpersonal conversation with another student (speaking test), and a presentational speaking or writing assessment (paragraph, brochure, letter, journal entry, skit with a partner, etc.).
Daily work includes practice on skills necessary for successful completion of the IPAs. This could include paired activities; small group activities; writing assignments; games; listening exercises including video clips, songs and films; and formative IPAs.
