Keys to Communication: English for Spanish Speakers. Student Edition, Level One.
Dissemination and Assessment Center for Bilingual Education, Austin, TX.
This text is the first of a series of four levels sequenced as a continuum of language skills for Spanish speakers of limited English speaking ability in grades six through nine. Levels one and two emphasize the development of oral language skills. Levels three and four emphasize the development of written language skills. The text is divided into fourteen units each of which focuses on a different topic. Instructions for all exercises are written in Spanish and English. General principles and background information on the English language are included in each unit. Each unit is divided into three major areas. Oral practice includes a dialogue or reading selection which provides a stimulus leading to vocabulary development, practice with sounds and patterns of English, and cultural awareness. Speaking and listening exercises are included in the pronunciation section. English morphology and syntax are addressed in the structure section. In each of these sections oral or written exercises and drills designed for group and/or individual use are included. A glossary of vocabulary words is included at the end of each unit. (Author/JK)
