    Spanish I

    1 credit

    Text: En Espanol: Level 1 by by Estella Gahala and Patricia Hamilton Carlin

    Course Description: This class focuses on Hispanic culture and basic communication in present

    tense Spanish. Topics include telling time, weather, greetings, sports vocabulary, and classroom

    vocabulary. Also includes use of Spanish in real-life situations such as giving and asking for

    directions, bargaining in a market, and eating in a restaurant.

    Helps students move gradually from comprehension through production. The two-step vocabulary

    introduction process begins with the En contexto section where active vocabulary is visually pre-

    taught in a relevant context. Motivating dialogues with embedded vocabulary and grammar depict

    real-life situations within the En vivo section. Related practice activities in the En accion section

    move from a controlled to meaningful to communicative use of the language. Lessons also

    integrate culturally rich reading in the Lecturas section. In addition, the En colores section

    presents culturally authentic and thematically relevant materials that make the language and

    culture come to life for students. Finally, lessons end with review and extension activities.

    All classroom instructions and conversations are in Spanish. Class activities include spelling

    in Spanish, Spanish Pictionary, conversational Spanish between classmates, and vocabulary

    review.

    Students memorize Scripture verses in Spanish.

    Theology: Year 1

    Westminster Shorter Catechism Study

    ½ credit

    Texts:

    The Westminster Shorter Catechism For Study Classes by G. I. Williamson

    Course description:

    The course outline is derived from the Westminster Shorter Catechism, one of the three forms of

    unity from the time of the Reformation. The WSC is considered to be one of the most beautiful

    distillations of Christian theology known to the church and forms the basis for many of the creeds

    of Protestantism.

    Specifically, the goals of this course include:

    1. To present the One, True, and Living God in all of His glory and to encourage students toward greater faith in and worship of Him.

    2. To transform thinking, creating intelligent believers who know what they believe and why they believe it.

    3. To transform lives. The word of God changes behavior and attitudes as they learn by grace to be “holy as their heavenly Father is holy”.

    This first year develops a theological foundation of who God is and how He redeems His people.

    The course work includes answering of study questions, classroom participation, midterm and final

    exams. Memorization of the catechism questions covered is offered as an option in lieu of the

    exams.
