How many units can I access each month?
After you sign up for a paid membership you will have access to ALL units and lessons. We know many teachers teach multiple levels at one time and also like to plan ahead. Sign up, log in, and you can see and use all units and all lessons! We will continue to add new units throughout the year.
Are there vocabulary lists?
Not exactly. Some lessons have a short list of words and phrases that are targeted during the lesson. We’ve found that WE as teachers are used to the list, but they do just fine (OR BETTER) without it. As we learned more about proficiency we found it was more important for them to learn language functions rather than topic vocab. Example: For a lesson like “I can give my opinion about extreme sports” they ALL need to know “I think” “it is” and “because” = function vocab. They all need detail vocab too, but that is going to be unique to each kid. Some might need the word “dangerous, extreme, wild” and others might want “exciting, adventurous, and thrilling.” Click to see more examples.

If I can give students input, I know they will learn the function vocab, and they can learn whatever they want for the details. However, I always checked that they can complete the daily objective by the end of class and that usually required both function + some details. By the time I assessed at the end of the unit, I found kids were using a greater variety of words and lots of details I would have never put on a vocab list. I saw that they weren’t limited to the list – it was awesome! Plus, if you have native speakers like I did… they may already know 75% of the list. When the focus was to complete the daily objective at your proficiency, they had to actually think! – Megan

Can I download the units?
No, units and lessons cannot be downloaded. AdiósTextbook works as an online resource. The first part of each lesson is ready to show directly to students. We recommend that you simply project it on the board and teach! Then there is an explanation/ideas for the teacher at the bottom. No need to save lessons to your flashdrive or search for them on your computer. You can log in and access these lessons from any computer, anytime. All you need is internet access and a current membership.

Exceptions: Each unit has a packet to download a unit overview, student goal sheet, homework options, and an assessment so you can print. Some lessons may include a handout, activity or graphic organizer that you will be able to directly print for your students.

What grades/ages are these lessons made for?
Our lessons were created for high school students, but would also work well for middle school.

We advise all teachers to preview videos and resources before using them to be sure they are appropriate for your students and school.

How long are the lessons/units?
Each lesson is created to last 45-60 minutes depending on how in-depth you choose to complete each activity. You may choose to add your own questions to continue conversations or include practice activities in specific lessons. You may choose to skip some activities or add some. You have the freedom to adjust these to fit your teaching style and your students’ unique learning styles.

Each unit is set to last about 2 weeks, but may take slightly longer for projects, presentations and assessments.

Is this a complete curriculum?
Not yet, but that is the goal. We want you to have access to engaging and communicative lessons on a variety of topics that are based on Hispanic people and culture. Our current units target novice/intermediate proficiency levels. Here are our available units and a suggested Scope & Sequence.

Eventually we plan to have three full years of Spanish study, plus French and German to follow.

Does this support the AP themes?
Absolutely! We intentionally plan each unit to connect to at least one theme. See the AP chart for details.
