Wayside Publishing has just released its new Spanish language learning series for levels 1, 2, 3 (novice-low to intermediate-mid): EntreCulturas: Communicate, Explore, and Connect Across Cultures.
This groundbreaking, standards-based Spanish series for middle and high school students focuses on teaching intercultural communicative competence with features like can-do statements alongside activities, student portfolios, and authentic resources.
EntreCulturas is aligned with the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages, ACTFLs 5 C’s, and introduces AP® and IB themes starting at the novice level.
EntreCulturas: Communicate, Explore, and Connect Across Cultures is available in hardcover, softcover, or FlexText eBook.
EntreCulturas Explorer, a digital workbook that accompanies the text, includes access to Learning Strategies videos, authentic video blogs from Spanish-speaking teens, and student portfolios where learners can upload evidence of their skills.
The company and author team set out to use backward design to create a series like no other, according to Wayside Publishing President Greg Greuel. The team wanted to create engaging classroom-ready materials to align with the most recent standards and pedagogical guidelines published by the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL), Greuel said.
“Each of the eleven authors brought a wide range of knowledge, skills, and experience to the series that worked in concert to create a cohesive, articulated series,” Curriculum Coordinator Janet Parker said.
“Once the foundational thread of interculturality was established, each author team developed a thematic scope and sequence for their level.”
Greuel praised the author team for the extraordinary number of hours put into the series.
“They poured their hearts and souls into this series—and it really shows.”
EntreCulturas is available to sample digitally or for purchase in hardcover, softcover, and FlexText eBook. Each new textbook purchase comes with a 1-year complimentary subscription to EntreCulturas Explorer. For more information on Explorer and FlexText, visit waysidepublishing.com/learningsite
