"¿Sabías que...?" is published in two sections, offering short, informative texts about both Hispanic culture and the Spanish language, accompanied by activities so you can load up onto PowerPoint and share them with your students. It also contains suggestions for you, the instructor, on how to use these materials in the classroom.
"Bio-historia" offers brief texts about famous Spanish-speaking people, along with activities that allow your students to use personal knowledge, technology, and other means to explore that person in more detail and to relate information to themselves.
"Spotlight on an Activity" features ready-to-go activities to take to your classroom. This section offers an activity type with examples for teachers to use immediately or modify according to their needs.
FOR SUBSCRIBING MEMBERS
The new "subscription-only" materials are now downloadable PDFs designed for specific proficiency levels (novice, intermediate, advanced). Currently, there are a limited number of resources for each level because we recently made this change, but new materials are posted in each category monthly. Below are samples of the types of materials you would receive regularly as subscribing members.
