Intermediate SCDC Spanish Curricula Units. Spanish SL, Unit 1, Kits 1-4, Teacher's Guide.
Spanish Curricula Development Center, Miami Beach, FL.; Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
Focusing on the community, this Spanish as a Second Language unit provides the English-dominant child with the structures and vocabulary needed for effective communication in a bilingual environment. The instructional and assessment activities help the child build concepts in his new language through formal and informal language experiences. Focus, objective, and materials for each activity are given in Spanish and English; teacher instructions are in Spanish only. An illustrated Spanish reader is used to develop the skills of decoding, comprehension and interpretation. Activities in Kits 1-4 deal with the neighborhood and individuals in the neighborhood, the seasons and months of the year, the future tense in the first person plural, direct and indirect object pronouns, syllables, the initiation of change in the community, a cafeteria administrator's job, ordinal numbers, word division, the present perfect, verb forms, and the possible results of changes in the community. The kits also include the choral reading of some poems in Haiku, a review of the water cycle through an oral story, rhymes written by the children, the discussion of some occupations related to the production of a ballet, the practice of some manual skills related to the theater, the expression of some words through body movements, and the presentation of a ballet.
