The 4th, 5th and 6th grade curriculum is based off of the ¡Cuéntame! curriculum. ¡Cuéntame! is based on personalizing the vocabulary and making the vocabulary into funny, bizarre stories that keep the students’ attention.
I had originally based my syllabus on the Paso a Paso 1 textbook but quickly realized that this antiquated form of language instruction was not engaging the students. My syllabus has changed but I still hope to start the beginner’s novel Isabela captura un congo by the end of the year. I will be providing an updated syllabus later this quarter.
