For all those teachers who want, need and are desperate to add culture, here is the answer. These inexpensive workbooks fullfill the cultural requirement in spades.
Each workbook has contextualized units, content-based. Every unit has a pre-reading exercise, a reading, comprehension, integrated grammar and vocabulary, Internet key words to continue the search, an oral exercise and a vocabulary list.
In an effort to reach as many students as possible, all three have units on the arts, sports, science, history, daily life and more. Every student is different and trying to reach them all is a real challenge.
Primer paso a la cultura, Student, is meant for first year Spanish. It is normally used in grades 7, 8 and 9 but several junior colleges use it as a cultural supplement for first year Spanish. In addition, grade 6 immersion teachers use it as a cultural reader that reviews everything learned. This level uses images to further cultural comprehension and understanding.
Segundo paso a la cultura, Student, is meant for second year Spanish. It focuses on the Andean countries and has chapters on both Spain and Mexico. The readings are thought provoking and respectful of another culture. The grammar is level apropriate, ie preterits and imperfects. The grammar and vocabulary are contextualized.
Tercer paso a la cultura, Student, for third year Spanish, focuses on the Southern Cone countries and of course there are chapters about Spain. Eclectic, it tries to speak to the very diverse interests of our students. Yes, some subjunctives.
