TWO Required text(s):

Destinos: An introduction to Spanish Textbook ISBN 10: 0070020698 / ISBN 13: 9780070020696, 1992, 2nd Edition is often under $50 and highly recommended to purchase (it is rather image heavy to print). (Spanish 1-4)

Destinos: Workbook/Study Guide I. Lessons 1-26 (Spanish 1 [1-13] & Spanish 2 [Lessons 14-26]) ISBN-10 0070672598  ISBN-13 978-0070672598

Both books can also be printed if you search online at¬† ‚Äú‚ÄĚ Textbook, audios, videos, and workbook are available for free online but will require extensive printing. I highly recommend either printing Chapters 1-13 of¬† textbook, workbook, self-tests (at end of workbook pdfs) and answer keys- before classes begin or purchase them online.¬†

I have found one of the best sources to buy physical books.  Once you obtain these for Spanish 1 you will already have Spanish 2 materials on hand.

Prerequisites: Before taking Spanish 1, students should be able to study 30-60 minutes/day on a single topic (normally 3-5 hours per week outside of class), check own work in red/green or highlighter, answer questions verbally, type answers (with corrections in parenthesis) or upload .jpg images of completed and graded work weekly, and follow instructions. 

Summary: High School Spanish 1 is a full immersion study of Spanish using the engaging Destinos telenovela video series, textbook, audio and workbook to develop basic reading, writing, listening, and speaking skills to develop conversational skill in vocabulary and grammar in the present tense, as well as a brief introduction to describing the future and past.  

Destinos: An Introduction to Spanish Spanish 1 teaches AP level Spanish so that your student may test out of Spanish 1 requirements for High School and/or University Foreign Language Year 1 requirements. Students will learn to read, write, speak, and listen to native Spanish speakers to develop basic Spanish communication skills.

By the end of this course, students will:

 Read, write, and learn how to discuss things in the present, past, and near future.

  Learn practical conversational topics like travel, weather, sports, classes, buying clothes, telling time, physical and personality descriptions, hobbies, and ordering food. 

  Actively participate in class, practice charades/Simon says to demonstrate vocabulary, offer daily practice sentences for live feedback (we learn more from mistakes than correct first tries), and turning in the Participation prompt after class, along with pages assigned.
