Capital Aspiracional is the first unit in the series for Spanish Heritage Learners. This is a language arts-style series that gives students the opportunity to focus on the strengths and resources of their culture.
The Capital Aspiracional unit guides students in examining the aspirations of Latino immigrants and the generations that follow them and how those hopes and dreams are an invaluable resource. Students will learn new vocabulary, participate in discussing groups, examine some key differences between English and Spanish grammar, and examine their own relation to the subject matter through research and writing prompts.
Part I contains vocabulary, research activities, discussion prompts, a quiz and a teacher key. You can complete the unit there or if you would like to add a writing component, Part II contains grammar, writing activities, a quiz and a teacher key.
