Welcome to the homepage of El Libro De Español 2. There is a major wave of CI, TPRS, and other organic methods sweeping the nation of Spanish classes across the land! I am striving to be part of that movement. However, I am a firm believer in "everything in moderation". I believe in a healthy diet of all things good to bring balance to my students. So, in this free online textbook I have married OLD SCHOOL with NEW SCHOOL. In this class we will learn to speak español !! and... we will learn about the linguistics of the language too! "Why do we have to learn grammmmmaaaarrrr???" you ask?...Because, it is an integral, fundamental pillar that not only explains the "why?" but also teaches you many things about your own language. That's right, I'm here to educate you in so many ways :) So, kick back and enjoy the ride! ¡Vamos a divertirnos en la clase de español!
Homepage of each chapter:
1- A summary of the vocabulary and grammar.
2- A link explaining the culture theme.
3- "Cosas que ya sabes" (Things you already know). Review of important points learned last year.
Remember that Spanish is a building process and it is very important to make sure that you remember the basics to ensure a strong foundation for the building blocks to come.
In general, you will not have a quiz or test on the review points of "Ya sabes". The objective is for you to experience a quick reminder of these points so that you can effectively build on them with the new material presented in each chapter. This means that you are expected to know the review points and use them properly because although your test may not be on those points specifically, your ability to execute the new material correctly may depend on what you learned last year.
The drop-down menu of each chapter:
Vocabulary page of each chapter:
1- Vocabulary section 1 (P-V-1) (1-V-1) (2-V-1) ...
2- Vocabulary secion 2 (P-V-2) (1-V-2) (2-V-2) ...
3- Quizlet button for each section.
You will need to set up a quizlet account using your school google email account. I will provide a link to join the quizlet class called DMSP2. Here you will be assigned various activities to help you master the vocabulary of each chapter.
Grammar pages of each chapter:
1- A prezi that will explain the grammar point step by step
2- Assigned worksheets for homework (P-1-A) (1-1-A) (2-1-A)
The prezi grammar lessons will have built in practice exercises that we will do together in class as "guided practice". These guided practice exercises are an excellent way for you to test your understanding at home too!
There will be worksheets below the prezi that will be assigned for homework that you will do on your own (consider this as your "workbook"). Most of the time, the quizzes will be formatted much like the practices exercises that you do for homework.
Each grammar page will contain a prezi that will explain the grammar point step by step. We will review these prezi's together in class and you will write down the notes to each grammar point. This may seem worthless to you as the notes are available online at all times, but writing is part of the learning process and it keeps the notes available to you in a notebook for easy access to study. Sooo, you must take notes on the grammar prezi's.
Review page of each chapter:
1- Screen shots of the important pages of each prezi
2- Review practice to prepare for the test
