Goals, Planning and Pacing

I would like to give a clear explanation for my level 2 goals and an explanation of how to plan and pace your year using this site.

Goal-My overall goal for level 2 is for students to acquire the 200 most frequently used structures (verbs), while in the meantime acquiring other vocabulary, in the present, past, present perfect, conditional, and future tenses. I expect all students to be able use the language covered in class. I do expect my students to make mistakes when it comes to subject verb agreement, number gender agreement, etc. I fell that level three is where the perfect their use of the language.

Pacing-I designed the site into basic week long plans that lead to teaching of additional vocabulary and culture lessons. I like to take every 6 weeks to review the prior 5 weeks, give a formal assessment, and include a culture lesson. I have included 6 culture lessons that are meant to be taught every 6 weeks during a week of review. I have found this way I am able to go back over the prior weeks to assure that students have acquired the vocabulary being taught.

Novels/readers that I read in Spanish 2

Noches misteriosas en Granada, Problemas in Paraíso, Los Baker van a Perú, and La llorona.
