Honors Course Information

Spanish 2160H is the fourth semester of Spanish designed for honors students who have completed the elementary Spanish sequence at MU or equivalent prerequisite classes. This class is fundamentally different from other 2160 classes in that it focuses on the application and refinement of grammatical concepts through the introduction of new vocabulary and cultural topics. In this course it is assumed that students have mastered the vocabulary and grammatical concepts taught in the elementary levels. Therefore, this course will continue to focus on refining the four language skills of reading, writing, speaking, and listening through the use of authentic texts, group activities, and the incorporation of cultural activities throughout the semester.
Special attention is given to oral production as well and students are expected to actively participate every day of class. As students participate in many, mostly oral, guided activities, their speaking ability will improve in both accuracy and fluency. Students also will be expected to do a significant amount of reading and writing in this section of 2160. The semester will culminate with the completion of a writing portfolio that will display all of the grammatical skills that students worked on throughout the semester as well as a multimedia project and presentation on a current cultural topic.
