In alignment to District 300’s central mission, to ensure all students are college and career ready upon graduation, students who graduate from our schools will develop skills in the target language to communicate through the domains of reading, writing, listening, and speaking; develop an awareness of the cultures that utilize the target language; and use the target language in formats appropriate for the classroom and the workplace.
Students are able to take two years of Spanish based on their academic performance. In seventh grade, students will take introduction to Spanish that will help establish a baseline knowledge in the language. In eight grade, students will take the equivalent to high school Spanish 1 and those that complete the course with passing grades will earn 1.0 credit hours on their high school transcript and be eligible to take Spanish 2 as 9th graders.
Students may choose to study Spanish, French, or German (at Dundee-Crown and Jacobs). Students will develop the language skills in order to communicate in personal, professional, and social settings with others that speak the target language. While in class, students will almost exclusively utilize the target language as they are immersed in communicative activities and learning about the target cultures.
