Spanish Teacher  Charles Jennings

Spanish Exploratory classes are 9 weeks long (1 quarter) and are designed to introduce middle school students to foreign language study and other cultures. Students receive an introduction to language learning strategies and acquire enough background to select a language for continuing study at the high school level. Our district foreign language program will enhance our students’ future career opportunities and help them contribute responsibly as members of a global society.

Our middle school course is built upon the Illinois state foreign language standards:

  • GOAL 28: Use the target language to communicate within and beyond the classroom setting.
  • GOAL 29: Use the target language to develop an understanding of the customs, arts, literature, history and geography associated with the target language.
  • GOAL 30: Use the target language to make connections and reinforce knowledge and skills across academic, vocational and technical disciplines.
