Listed in: Spanish, as SPAN-201
Sarah M. Piazza (Sections 01 and 02)
SPAN 201 is the third of a four-semester sequence in the Spanish Language Program designed for students who a) have successfully completed SPAN102, b) who have placed into the course via the Spanish Department placement exam, or c) who have scored 4 on the AP Spanish Language exam or 3 in the AP Spanish Literature Exam. The course develops students’ ability to narrate across various time frames, follow the main plot of narratives (including longer texts and feature-length films), and exchange basic descriptions, comparisons, and interpretations about authentic materials from the Spanish-speaking world. By the end of the semester, students can expect to have reached the Intermediate High level of the ACTFL scale, and be ready to proceed to SPAN 202. In the fall, the course consists of three 50-minute sessions with the lecturer and one 50-minute session with the language assistant. In the spring, the course consists of two 80-minute sessions per week with the lecturer and one 50-minute session with the language assistant. Limited to 16 students per section. This course may not be counted toward the Spanish Major. The class will be conducted entirely in Spanish.
In the fall, both sections will be taught online. Students will access the course remotely through Zoom video conferencing and will also be provided with asynchronous materials and activities to facilitate learning. The required course text uses an online platform for content and cultural materials, practice exercises, and interactive projects. In addition, the course will use authentic readings, films available on Moodle, podcasts, and an online conversation partner program to engage students.
Requisite: SPAN 102 or Spanish Placement Exam. Fall and spring semesters. Lecturer Piazza, Visiting Lecturer Dixon and Assistants.
