General Course Information and Notes
M/J Exploratory Spanish, Advanced, is a continuation of M/J Exploratory Spanish, Beginning and Intermediate. Students will expand upon their knowledge of the target language and culture which they acquired in previous Spanish courses. Students continue practicing beginning skills in listening and speaking and an introduction to basic skills in reading and writing. Also, culture, connections, comparisons, and communities are included in this semester course.
This course shall integrate the Goal 3 Student Performance Standards of the Florida System of School Improvement and Accountability as appropriate to the content and processes of the subject matter. It also must reflect appropriate Next Generation Sunshine State Standards benchmarks and Florida Standards for English/Language Arts and Mathematics.
The standards and benchmarks listed for this course are aligned with the expected levels of proficiency, rather than grade levels.
This is a one semester advanced exploratory course that will ideally be offered in seventh or eighth grade and will be the last in a series of three exploratory courses to introduce students to Spanish language and culture. Together with M/J Exploratory Spanish and M/J Exploratory Spanish, Intermediate, it will provide students with the option of taking an exploratory language course each year in middle school.
English Language Development (ELD) Standards Special Notes Section:
Teachers are required to provide listening, speaking, reading and writing instruction that allows English Language Learners (ELL) to communicate for social and instructional purposes within the school setting. For the given level of English language proficiency and with visual, graphic, or interactive support, students will interact with grade level words, expressions, sentences and discourse to process or produce language necessary for academic success. The ELD standard should specify a relevant content area concept or topic of study chosen by curriculum developers and teachers which maximizes an ELL's need for communication and social skills.
