**It would be helpful to read this post first - How I Create a CI Curriculum for Spanish 1-4.

OK now are you ready for next year's tentative curriculum!?! Click on the links for previous blog post explaining the units or resources to make your life easier. This post has now been updated as well. If you are interested in getting many of the resources I use, I would suggest starting with Spanish 1 Mega Bundle & Mega Bundle Spanish 2 or 3, as well as clicking the links below. 

Year 8 - 2019-2020 plan 

It is important to note that I have started moving quicker to keep interest, such as reading some books in the style of 1 novel 1 week. This is why it might seem like I have more content listed than others. I also pick and choose from SOMOS units, with them typically just lasting 1 week (Intro vocab, story, and get right into the culture of unit). Please remember this is all subject to change and I will adjust as needed. 

Spanish 1 19-20
Spanish 1 Mega Bundle (includes many resources listed below)

This particular group of Spanish 1 had one quarter of Exploratory Spanish (which included Super 7 unit, & SOMOS units 1-3), so they will be starting slightly ahead of where I would normally start in Spanish 1.

**This class is going to be blended with a mix of independent study and those actually in class due to scheduling problems, so the plan is much looser depending on their future interests. With the group I have, we may move VERY fast through some of my planned units. I think it will be more of a college class set up with a possible 20% time for those actually in class for choice reading in Spanish, watching a choice show, investigating something related to future job in Spanish etc. 

Quarter 1
  • 48 hours novel unit (new)
  • Pachamama & Environment

Quarter 2

Quarter 3


Quarter 4
(During March - March Madness Song Bracket)

  • La Calaca Alegre - novel unit
  • El Orfanato film study
  • Identidad unit is a great way to end Senior year :)

If you want to see how I have evolved & changed here was my tentative plan last year


2018-2019

This particular group of Spanish 1 had two quarters of Exploratory Spanish, so they started ahead of where I would normally start in Spanish 1. If I was starting from a true Spanish 1, I would start with the Super 7 unit, the novel El Capibara con botas and SOMOS units 1-5

Spanish 1 18-19

**This class was very small and did not always meet due to scheduling problems, so the plan was much looser and more of a blended learning with online ecourses and Google Classroom. With the group I have, we moved VERY fast through some of my planned units and ended up doing about two books per quarter. I added notes about some changes we did & will hopefully blog about this blended class soon. 

Quarter 1
  • Cajas de Cartón- short story unit with Postville Raid
  • **We actually switched out this unit & they did Vidas Impactantes as an ecourse

Quarter 2
  • +Hija del Sastre ecourse
  • Literature Circles - full novels
  • **due to small numbers they did a choice book and TV show

Quarter 3
  • +Hasta la sepultura ecourse


Quarter 4

  • + choice book and TV show
  • La Calaca Alegre - novel unit
  • El Orfanato film study
  • Identidad unit is a great way to end Senior year :)

Whoah. Well that was a beast to write as always. I hope you found it useful! Please share your curriculum as well!

  2. Thank you for everything you share! It's a great resource as I delve deeper into my CI practice. Do you read El Capibara con Botas after only doing the Super 7 Unit? Or is it somewhere in between the Somos 1-5 units?

  3. Do you have anymore details for the Identidad unit mentioned at the end of quarter 4 for Spanish 4? What resources do you use for that?

    ReplyDelete
  4. This is so helpful. I have purchased a lot of your resources and this gives me a good outline for when to use them. Thank you so much!

  5. Did you make a teachers guide for "Silbon"?

  6. Thanks! This is awesome. One question, we are on a semester block schedule at my school, so our "quarters" are only 4.5 weeks long, but we see our students for 90 min every day. I teach level 1, so how would you adjust this pacing for a schedule like that?

    1. I would honestly pace the same. The contact hours should be similar.
