Are you sick of your textbook curriculum? Is your district encouraging you to use (or design?!) a digital curriculum? Do you want to run a proficiency based classroom? Whatever the case, get rid of that textbook and still provide your students with the consistency and continuity that they need! This purchase for a complete first year Spanish curriculum for high school students (adaptable for middle level students) will allow you to do just that. The curriculum is designed around the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages and the NCSSFL-ACTFL Can-Do Statements. The lessons progress through Novice-Low to Novice-Mid goals. This product provides 16 lesson that have 5-6 Can-Do Statements in different modes of communication (Interpersonal, Presentational, and Interpretive) grouped by a common theme or context. If you have learned about and want to try using Integrated Performance Assessments (IPAs), then you will love this curriculum.

Use the included Marzano-based learning progression scales to help your students set goals and keep track of their language progression towards proficiency.

The bundle includes a .pdf of handouts for each unit, an editable .pptx of the handouts, and a editable PowerPoint presentation to accompany the handouts.

Each of the 16 complete lessons include:

Save yourself tons of time and money with this curriculum and get amazing student achievement results. I have been SO happy letting go of a textbook and focusing on helping students find out what they really CAN DO in the language.
