World Languages - Spanish

In Northside ISD, Spanish language courses are designed to achieve the following objectives as aligned with the Texas Essential Knowledge and Skills for Languages Other Than English (TEKS for LOTE):

  • To satisfy the needs of students who wish to pursue specific work to increase their ability to listen, speak, read, and write the Spanish language.
  • To provide students the opportunity to compare and contrast their language and culture with those of Spanish-speaking countries and other parts of the world.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to relate the topics to other subject areas, making Spanish relevant to the students’ overall academic experience.
  • To encourage students to seek opportunities to practice Spanish outside of the classroom by interacting with family members and members of the community.
  • To encourage students to understand that they are members of a global society and help them develop “survival” skills in the language in order to function effectively in social interactions and discussions.
  • To provide students with the opportunity to utilize technology incorporating the usage of multi-media labs.
