Conversación y composición is designed for students who are interested in learning and practicing advanced-level Spanish reading and essay writing strategies. For the Spring quarter, students will read short plays from Latin American writers in Spanish. In addition to this, students are expected to actively participate in seminar-like activities talking about grammatical topics of interest as well as analyzing the play's form and content. Students will write several short response papers and a final essay and may be expected to act some of the play content.
Students need to have access to zoom and have technology with video and sound capabilities. 2. Estimate of synchronous hours: 4 hours/week. 3. The class will emphasize participation in synchronous (live) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
Students need to have completed the equivalent of Spanish Second Year II. Contact the faculty for an assessment of proficiency if needed.
