The Spanish language program focuses on the development of multilingual literacies through the analysis and use of Spanish as a second language. The program focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

 

(1)  linguistic competence (Spanish phonetics/phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication / interactional competence (sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background / perspectives)

(3)  metalinguistic competence (language as a conceptual, symbolic system)

1. COURSE PURPOSE, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES

 

The language program at The University of Texas focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

 

(1)  linguistic competence (linguistic proficiency in Spanish including knowledge of phonetics/phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication/ interactional competence (communicative abilities in Spanish including knowledge of sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background/perspectives)

(3)  metalinguistic competence (awareness of language as a conceptual, symbolic  system)

 

Within the language program, SPN 327G is the first in the Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition two-course sequence. It is a bridge course between lower and upper-division Spanish designed to

  • help you inductively master grammar points of particular concern to speakers of English
  • perfect your grammar skills through a variety of tasks designed to clarify grammatical points, including oral, reading, and writing activities
  • acquire and apply strategies of composition development (pre-writing, writing, revising, editing, and evaluation)
  • promote critical and integrative thinking skills.

 

This learner-based course will lead you through a “guided inductive approach” that presents you with selected samples to analyze in order to

  • discover patterns of oral and written discourse,
  • formulate hypotheses about the linguistic and communicative functions of the Spanish language
  • develop an understanding of Hispanic culture and literature.

 

All in-class activities, readings, movies, and assignments are in Spanish.

 

Expectations: This is a fifth-semester course designed to strengthen and advance your knowledge of Spanish. Students enrolled in this course are expected to

  • have mastered basic grammatical concepts (agreement; verb conjugations: present, past, future; pronouns)
  • understand indicative, imperative, and subjunctive moods
  • read and write at a fourth-semester level or at an advanced proficiency level

If you are weak in any of these skills, it is your responsibility to study and master them and/or visit your instructor at the beginning and throughout the semester to help you reach the expected basic level that is necessary for you to understand and master advanced notions.

The course will be entirely taught in Spanish

1.  PURPOSE, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES OF THE LANGUAGE PROGRAM

The objective of the Spanish language program addresses the basic tenet of a liberal arts education: the development of a critical thinking approach towards the analysis of language in society. This objective is framed in an overall worldwide trend towards political and economical internationalization and an increasingly diverse and multicultural work environment.

The Spanish language program focuses on the development of multilingual literacies through the analysis and use of Spanish as a second language. The program focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

(1)  linguistic competence (Spanish phonetics / phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication / interactional competence (sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background / perspectives)

(3)  metalinguistic competence (language as a conceptual, symbolic system)

 SPN 325L Introduction to Spanish American Literature since Modernism (2nd summer session).
 
COURSE DESCRIPTION
This course offers a survey of major literary trends and writers of Spanish American literature since Modernism within a cultural context. While the course uses a selection of works that are recognized by critics, specialists, and readers as the most outstanding, it will also include other less-known authors that are equally notable in order to reflect the diversity of Spanish American literature. Most works will be read in their entirety; however, an occasional work may be abridged. The course will include the four genres and will require both textual and thematic analyses of the works so as to prepare students for more advanced courses.
 
COURSE OBJECTIVES
This course is designed to help you
·       read and understand literary texts within an historical and cultural context;
·       foster and develop an individual critical points of view;
·       analyze and compare different literary texts; and
·       write short responses and essays that focus on text and thematic analysis.

88520 • Summer 2009

Within the language program, SPN 327G is the first in the Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition two-course sequence. It is a bridge course between lower and upper-division Spanish designed to:

  • help you inductively master grammar points of particular concern to speakers of English
  • perfect your grammar skills through a variety of tasks designed to clarify and expand your knowledge about particular grammatical points. The oral, reading, and writing activities used to present the grammar offer relevant cultural knowledge that you will be expected to investigate and compare with your own culture.
  • acquire and apply strategies of composition development (pre-writing, writing, revising, editing, and evaluation), and
  • promote critical and integrative thinking skills.

 

This learner-based course will lead you through a guided inductive approach that presents you with selected samples to analyze in order to

  • discover patterns of oral and written discourse,
  • formulate hypotheses about the linguistic and communicative functions of the Spanish language, and
  • develop an understanding of Hispanic culture.

 

All in-class activities, readings, and assignments are in Spanish.

1. COURSE PURPOSE, GOALS, AND OBJECTIVES

 

The language program at The University of Texas focuses on the development of three major types of competencies (all equally ranked in terms of importance):

 

(1)  linguistic competence (linguistic proficiency in Spanish including knowledge of phonetics/phonology, morphosyntax, lexicon, discourse, etc.)

(2)  communication/ interactional competence (communicative abilities in Spanish including knowledge of sociocultural uses of the language, pragmatics, cultural background/perspectives)

(3)  metalinguistic competence (awareness of language as a conceptual, symbolic  system)

 

Within the language program, SPN 327G is the first in the Advanced Spanish Grammar and Composition two-course sequence. It is a bridge course between lower and upper-division Spanish designed to

  • help you inductively master grammar points of particular concern to speakers of English
  • perfect your grammar skills through a variety of tasks designed to clarify grammatical points, including oral, reading, and writing activities
  • acquire and apply strategies of composition development (pre-writing, writing, revising, editing, and evaluation)
  • promote critical and integrative thinking skills.

 

This learner-based course will lead you through a “guided inductive approach” that presents you with selected samples to analyze in order to

  • discover patterns of oral and written discourse,
  • formulate hypotheses about the linguistic and communicative functions of the Spanish language
  • develop an understanding of Hispanic culture and literature.

 

All in-class activities, readings, movies, and assignments are in Spanish.

 

Expectations: This is a fifth-semester course designed to strengthen and advance your knowledge of Spanish. Students enrolled in this course are expected to

  • have mastered basic grammatical concepts (agreement; verb conjugations: present, past, future; pronouns)
  • understand indicative, imperative, and subjunctive moods
  • read and write at a fourth-semester level or at an advanced proficiency level

If you are weak in any of these skills, it is your responsibility to study and master them and/or visit your instructor at the beginning and throughout the semester to help you reach the expected basic level that is necessary for you to understand and master advanced notions.

The course will be entirely taught in Spanish
