Summer Spanish Reading Club

Summer course. The WTMA Summer Spanish Reading Club is designed to keep Spanish students practicing their language skills and engaged in reading and discussion over the summer break. Students will come together with their instructor once a week to talk about that week’s reading and learn about the Spanish language and the countries around the world where it is spoken. We will specifically learn about Costa Rica, Cuba, Mexico, and the Dominican Republic in this session. We will explore the themes of revolution, nature, legends, and perseverance.

This class is appropriate for students who have completed either Spanish I or Spanish II with the Well-Trained Mind Academy. All texts are accessible to students at these levels. Students with more of a background in Spanish studies will be given readings and resources such as poems, short stories and articles in addition to the required readings. While the focus during class will be on the main text, excerpts from the more advanced supplemental readings may be introduced into the discussion, during which time more advanced students are encouraged, but not required, to help facilitate class discussion by explaining to their peers main ideas, points of interest, etc.

Prerequisite: Spanish I or II
