The EntreCulturas program is all about teaching novice to intermediate 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.
In Level 1 of this three-book series, 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 EntreCulturas 1 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.
