This beginning level Spanish unit, designed for high school students (but adaptable for middle level students), will allow you to start breaking free from your textbook curriculum! The unit is designed around the World-Readiness Standards for Learning Languages and the NCSSFL-ACTFL Novice-Low Statements. As you can see in the preview, each of the 4 lessons has 5-6 Can-Do Statements in different modes of communication (Interpersonal, Presentational, and Interpretive) grouped by the common theme of talking about likes and hobbies.
Use the included Marzano-based learning progression scales to help your students set goals and keep track of their language progression towards proficiency.
The product includes a zip file with a .pdf of handouts for the unit, an editable .pptx of the handouts, and a editable PowerPoint presentation to accompany the handouts.
Each of the 4 lessons include:
-Printable Marzano-based Learning Progression Scale
-Printable vocabulary list to support the learning goals
-Essential Questions for the lessons
-A list of authentic resources, links, and tasks related to the learning goals
-Printable lesson activities and games
-Cultural connection resources
-An editable Power Point Presentation to project the standards addressed, learning scale, vocabulary, activities and prompts for practicing learning goals that are guaranteed to get your students speaking and using the language!
-Grading suggestions, grading scales and grading rubrics are also included with the curriculum
Bonus: I included this Ir-Envelope Game

You will not regret throwing out your textbook and making this curriculum yours! The full curriculum allows you to completely free yourself from your textbook while still providing your students with the consistency and continuity they need. 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. You will not regret when you challenge yourself to teaching without a textbook, and truly these documents will allow you to do just that!
If you have any questions about this product, please message me at email@example.com or send me a question in the question forum. Also, I have tried to review the documents thoroughly and I am constantly editing and re-uploading but sometimes we are blind to our own typos and errors, so if you see an error in the documents, PLEASE send me a message and I’d be HAPPY to fix it and upload a new version--Positive feedback is very important to me :)
