Level 3 and up / Intermediate Low — Intermediate High
How do cultural norms affect the way we consume? How does our consumption affect the world around us? How can we ensure that each human being is born with certain basic human rights? The United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals are designed to help the world’s citizens work together to protect our planet and its people. Learn how ordinary people, young and old, have had a global impact, and find out what YOU can do to help achieve the goals!
This Spanish-language reader is included in Wayside's new EntreCulturas 3 Companion Reader Edition and targets the Intermediate Low to Intermediate Mid proficiency range. It strategically weaves intermediate-level language structures into a series of compelling, true-life accounts. Even upper-level language students need repeated exposure to language structures in order to acquire them, so our intermediate readers maintain a high frequency factor of intermediate language structures to help learners acquire language and increase their proficiency.
Teachers can confidently use S.O.S.tenible with their students by the middle of EntreCulturas 3 without needing to pre-teach vocabulary. Scaffolded activities for each chapter, included at the end of the book, will reinforce learning using all modes of communication. With essential questions, communicative and intercultural Can-Do Statements, a glossary, and more, S.O.S.tenible is more than a companion reader—it's a seamless fit for EntreCulturas 3 teachers and learners.
S.O.S.tenible is also a Comprehension-based readertm that can also be used as a supplement to the 2017 edition of EntreCulturas 3, as an addition to your classroom's FVR library, or as a comprehensible-input teaching tool.
