PRODUCT DESCRIPTION

With the purchase of this product you will receive one simple dialogue, an activity worksheet plus key, and five pages of teacher instructions and activity ideas. The dialogues are written at a beginning level using short questions and responses with expressions that are mostly reactive in nature but allow the student to feel as if they are in a real conversation using for the most part, Spanish 1 vocabulary. (Novice Level on the Foreign Language proficiency scale). The students also will be exposed to some more advanced expressions but, not so many as to make the dialogue too difficult for this level.

These dialogues are going to be a big hit with your classes because the students have control to leave the dialogue as written or they can manipulate the context of the conversation by substituting an underlined word for their choice of vocabulary. With each dialogue that I have written, the focus is on a real world topic/theme and is written for a particular skill level without focusing on grammar and syntax. Leave the grammar for the textbook exercises.

Textbook dialogues often are connected only to the grammar of the chapter and do not have a variety of terms or flexibility with which to build and expand ideas. Textbook dialogues resemble rote memory exercises but, are not sufficient for adapting to student daily use. For this reason I developed my own thematic units and glossaries and let the students choose the vocabulary that had meaning beyond the textbook exercise.

“Scaffolding" is the current terminology, however I like to refer to this educational strategy as "spiraling". The teacher provides the framework and examples of the activity and grammar and the students then reuse and recycle their prior knowledge while continually expanding with more complex structures and newer vocabulary. Students learn to take a more active role in their own learning and can be successful regardless of their skill level.
