The Spanish language, history, and culture form an integral part of the school curriculum. Grammar, composition, and conversation form the basis of Spanish instruction in the middle and high school years. Instructional techniques include lecture, reading, note-taking, translation, journal writing, discussion, and cooperative learning. Evaluation of student effort is based on tests, quizzes, oral and written projects, hand-on assignments, homework and class participation.
