About

Overview

Fuentes, the successful two volume intermediate Spanish program presents an integrated skills approach to intermediate Spanish that develops both receptive and productive skills simultaneously. Fuentes is made up of FUENTES: CONVERSACIÓN Y GRAMÁTICA (FCG) and FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN (FLR). Although FUENTES: CONVERSACIÓN Y GRAMÁTICA and FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN are designed to be used together, they can also be used independently of each other. FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN is designed to enhance the development of your reading and writing skills, your understanding of Hispanic cultures and societies, as well as your awareness of your own cultural beliefs, values, and assumptions. Fuentes program approach and philosophy: We learn by doing. By using the language to communicate original thoughts, in oral and written form, and by interacting with written texts and recorded conversations, students will acquire a high degree of proficiency Skill integration promotes language development. Each skill reinforces the others; therefore, students learn to comprehend and produce language while practicing specific strategies for listening, reading, and writing. Many activities combine skills to better reflect real-life language use. Language is culture, and culture is reflected in language. By being exposed to real-life situations and by comparing the new cultures with their own, students acquire an awareness of and respect for other peoples. Spiraling of material is essential to move students from learning to acquisition. Continuous and systematic reentry of previously studied material while learning about new topics leads students to acquisition of language needed to carry out specific functions. Learning is enhanced when it is enjoyable. If the material presented places students in a relaxed, pleasant atmosphere, and if students enjoy class activities, their rate of success increases.

Features and Benefits

  • Flexibility in the assignment of readings and writing activities, any or all of which can be used.
  • Lively, up-to-date topics and readings that serve to motivate students.
  • Unglossed readings that promote natural reading and strategy use.
  • Authentic journalistic and literary texts that expose students to a variety of text types, authentic Spanish written for native speakers, and attitudes that reflect and respond to Hispanic cultures.
  • Informative texts that focus on specific aspects of Hispanic cultures and societies.
  • Coordination of topics and functions with FCG that facilitates the incorporation of reading and writing into the class and allows further exploration of the topics presented in FCG. Alternatively, FCG can be used as a support text when students need to review use of grammar or vocabulary which appears in FLR readings or activities.
  • Systematic presentation, practice, and recycling of reading and writing strategies that help students learn to better acquire and communicate information.
  • Clear and concise strategy explanations that students can read outside of class.
  • Pre-reading, active (ongoing) reading, and post-reading activities that provide opportunities for individual, pair, and group practice and discussion.
  • Content-based composition activities that flow from and develop reading topics but generally have students use their own experience and reactions as the basis for writing. These activities, which practice writing a variety of text types, can be developed into full-fledged process writing projects.
  • Journal-writing activities that encourage cultural comparisons and personal responses to readings, and can be used as a basis for class discussions.
  • Student annotations that indicate the primary strategy practiced and/or recycled in activities and also provide cultural and linguistic information to supplement readings and activities.
  • Instructor's Annotated Edition with answers, guidelines for setting up activities and assigning homework, links between FCG and FLR, and suggested options and follow-ups.

Fuentes: Lectura y Redaccion  (ISBN-10: 0495909254 | ISBN-13: 9780495909255)

Each chapter of FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN is designed to enhance the development of your reading and writing skills, your understanding of Hispanic cultures and societies, as well as your awareness of your own cultural beliefs, values, and assumptions. As you work through FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN, remember that learning to read and write in Spanish is a process. In fact, you are probably still learning to interpret texts and write well in your native language. But you can make this process flow more easily by reading and writing something in Spanish every day, even if it is just a note. More important, stop every now and then to check your progress. Read something in Spanish that has nothing to do with class; you may not understand everything, but you will probably understand at least part of it. Though it is often forgotten, the fact is that people do much of their reading and writing for pleasure, and we, the authors of this text, hope that the readings and writing activities in Fuentes will spark your imagination and continued interest in the Spanish-speaking world.
