Spanish Language Arts and Reading Materials for the Intermediate Grades.
This article describes a set of Spanish language materials which were designed to meet the needs of Spanish-speaking children in the intermediate grades who had never been exposed to formal instruction in language arts and reading. The materials were developed by the author in collaboration with the Bilingual Materials Development Center in Fort Worth, Texas. An integrated methodology is used rather than a second language learning approach. Level 2, designed for students who already demonstrate a certain level of oral proficiency in Spanish, focuses on language arts content that will enable them to develop their vocabulary, grammar, reading, and writing skills. The Level 3 materials continue the development of the previous level and concentrate on the linguistic, cultural, and reading needs of the Spanish-speaking eighth grader. The methodology and contents of both student materials and teacher's manual for each level are described. The scope and sequence of each level are illustrated in table format. (AMH)
