Bold Ideas and Practical Resources for Your Language Classroom

 

Hi educators,

 

Authentic resources are a core component of proficiency-driven language instruction, so they are always on our minds. How do we find authentic resources that are relevant and engaging for instruction? How do we celebrate the authenticity of our own culture in daily life? And how do textbook authors incorporate authentic resources into curriculum design? We are delighted to explore these questions, and more, with you.

 

  • READ – A blog series break down of authentic resource best practices
  • COOK – Watch this authentic cooking lesson created for aspiring cooks, recorded in the target language
  • CONSIDER – How authors combined authentic resources, communicative based tasks, and more, into the design of our AP® Spanish text
  • REQUEST – Wayside's instant 30-day full content review

 

What would you like to see in a future issue? We would love to hear from you!

 

¡Felicidades!

Authentic Resources are Deliberate

In the video series How We Wrote This, Wayside's Triangulo APreciado author Frank Masel breaks down the approach the authors took when creating this indispensable AP® Spanish program.

Frank Masel's study of World Language education includes a B.A. in Spanish with a French Minor from Berea College, and an M.A. in Teaching with a Concentration in Spanish Language from Eastern Kentucky University. His classroom experiences include teaching Spanish 1, 3, and AP® levels in Kentucky and Maryland, teaching English at a bilingual elementary school in Spain, and instructing college students as an adjunct professor.

Masel currently teaches a variety of levels of Spanish and French at Catonsville High School just outside of Baltimore, Maryland. In addition, he sponsors the high school's International Club and a service-learning club. Outside of the classroom, Masel is a Table Leader for the AP® Spanish Language and Culture exam.
