Our Spanish classes here at Holy Rosary will emphasize all aspects of language learning: listening, reading, speaking and writing. Students at all grade levels will be learning the Spanish language in the context of thematic units. Thematic units will be the basis for our exploration of the Spanish language. We will not only be learning about the Spanish language, but also be learning other content (i.e. science, social studies) IN the Spanish language. In middle school, our textbooks will be used as a resource, but will not necessarily be followed in sequence. Teaching in thematic units allows students’ exposure and use of the language to be as authentic as possible. We will also be adhering to the Spanish standards laid out by the Diocese of Nashville.
