Feedback from Other Buyers

***Thank you so much for creating these! They are so helpful to have in class. My students were very engaged.****

Teaching a new course, or even trying to revamp a course you?ve taught for a while can be overwhelming.? These lesson plans will take you through the entire first unit for Families in Different Societies, starting with a ?Hook Activity? to spark interest and then the essential questions, vocabulary list and grammar study guide you will need to get started. Every activity you need (with the exception of 3) is linked in.? Your prep will be limited to reviewing the lesson plans and sources ahead of your students, but the searching for appropriate authentic materials and creating accompanying activities is already done for you!?

I am fortunate to have several textbook resources including Temas and Avance.? In these lesson plans I make use of these textbooks for 3 out of 50 activities.? However, especially after teaching on-line for a year, I have moved away from relying on textbooks and I create most of the activities myself. This makes these lesson plans very versatile and usable for anyone!? For teachers who need or like to teach digitally, all of the activities in this bundle can be assigned via Google Classroom or other learning management system. However, almost every activity is also printable for teachers and students who prefer paper copies.? Best of all, once you have these activities in your Google Drive, you can edit and adapt anything to suite your needs!

I have been teaching AP Spanish Language and Culture since 2014 and have 21 years of teaching experience.? My students have done overwhelmingly well on the AP exam over the years and almost all have earned the scores needed to get college credit, with many receiving 4?s and 5?s.?

I start the year with a set of lesson plans designed to last one week.? It is linked below.? We do all the paper-passing, signing up for different apps and classrooms, and become comfortable with the course and our classmates.? We also present our summer homework, also linked below.? This unit starts as if all of the beginning of the year ?housekeeping? has been done already.?

Consider asking your district to buy this product for you!???
