About

Overview

Fuentes builds on the knowledge students gained in their first-year Spanish course and develops language proficiency by refining receptive skills of listening and reading and productive skills of speaking and writing-all of this while encouraging students to compare, contrast, and develop an appreciation for Spanish-speaking cultures. 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 also can be used independently. FUENTES: LECTURA Y REDACCIÓN, 5e is designed to enhance the development of reading and writing skills and the understanding of Hispanic cultures and societies. By using the language to communicate original thoughts in both oral and written form and by interacting with written texts and recorded conversations, students 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.

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.
  • 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 accompanying volume, Fuentes: Conversación y gramática (FCG), that facilitates the incorporation of reading and writing into the class and allows further exploration of the topics presented in FCG.
  • 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 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 provide practice in 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 provide cultural and linguistic information to supplement readings and activities.
