- An instructional video, in both Spanish and English (putting comprehensible input into action) that explains concepts and vocabulary and gives opportunities for practice within the video.
- A student pdf, which recaps what is taught in written form. It also gives valuable tips for memorization and practice. Many of the student pdfs also have a link to quizlet sets, as well. All of the pdfs include a Mastery Track Activity, which is an exercise or short project that helps students to really solidify the material.
- A Google forms quiz (or reflection, in a couple of cases) that allow students to demonstrate understanding. Many of the quizzes have built-in feedback, and they are all set to be automatically graded.
As a licensed Spanish teacher, a lifelong language learner, and a curriculum and instruction masters degree holder, I cannot stress enough how important it is to lay a strong foundation in second language acquisition!
Research shows that if we help our students understand the basics of how the language works, and teach them using “comprehensible input + 1” (give them what they know, plus a little bit more) they can build that foundation and the confidence that helps them step out willingly into more challenging zones (Zone of Proximal Development).
I look forward to being part of you and your family’s Spanish-learning journey. Click here for access to the course!
