Tejidos
Comunicación Auténtica en un Contexto Cultural

Heritage Learners Level 4 / Intermediate Mid — Intermediate High

Overview

Tejidos: Comunicación auténtica en un contexto cultural is a thematic, standards-based Spanish program that aims to engage intermediate-level learners with authentic materials that align with the AP® Global Themes and the IB Temas, Troncales, and Opcionales.

"The book beautifully stair-steps the student to the more involved Triángulo Aprobado text. This book is ideal for a year-long pre-AP® then AP® level class. I like the interactive project ideas and culture capsules throughout the book."

Rita Monika Harris

Boiling Springs High School, South Carolina

"Don’t create every lesson plan on your own, it is exhausting. With upper levels, I frequently rely on a text for quality input. Recently, I have been pulling from Wayside Publishing's Tejidos for both overarching and challenging questions and quality leveled authentic resources."

"Resource #7: I’m not a big textbook fan, but I love Tejidos. It is written in the style of activities that I would create, but now I don’t have to. I usually adapt what is there, but it’s flexible enough to allow that to happen. Plus one of the authors for the EntreCulturas text series that precedes this is a common presenter on AP®."

"I love Tejidos because it is in line with the AP® themes. I also loved that grammar is not the focus of the textbook but culture. This is a perfect textbook for level 4 students."

The Interactive Digital Textbook

Your FlexText® is the page-by-page digital version of the textbook and is available through your Explorer® class or the FlexText® Library link on your Dashboard. Don't want to bring home your textbook? No problem! Flextext® is available wherever there is internet access.

A Community Bulletin Board

Learners and teachers alike use the Classroom Forum anytime as their online community bulletin board. Teachers love posting lesson openers, polls, links to external resources, and more. And students can comment, exchange GIFS, and upload audio, videos, and photos.

Learning to hold a conversation

Mock conversations with pre-recorded conversation prompts challenge your learners to hone their conversational skills. Learners record themselves replying to comments and questions, and the recorded conversations can be added to their portfolio as an artifact.

Tracking Their Own Progress

Online student portfolios follow learners from unit to unit, level to level. Students can upload evidence of what they can do in the language - activities, quizzes, audio files, PowerPoint and Word files, and more. This allows them to set goals and reflect on their progress related to Can-Do Statements.

Efficient, Integrated Grading

Use the online calendar to remind students of upcoming assignments and deadlines, assign tasks to specific learners or an entire class, and more. Explorer® lets you know when your students complete their work and alerts students as soon as you’ve graded. Grade each quiz question response without opening each question in Explorer®. Automatic grading is available where appropriate.
