Description

The EntreCulturas 1A /1B program is all about teaching novice students the Spanish language through the lens of interculturality, so they can discover appropriate ways to interact with others whose perspectives may be different from their own. This special two-book offering offers a slower pace designed for middle school or alternative scheduling. 

In level 1A and 1B, students build the language skills, personal attitudes, and cultural insights necessary to experience life "entre culturas," using Spanish to connect with people. Students learn grammar and vocabulary both inductively and deductively.

The focus of assessment in this program measures what students can do with the language they have learned through IPAs. Analytic and holistic rubrics accompany this textbook so teachers can stay on track.
