With a little preparation, you will be able to make engaging assessments to test interpersonal, interpretive and presentational Spanish language skills. Have students create storyboards to help them share Total Physical Response Stories with the classroom, or invite them to do group assessments by identifying and labeling objects in our visual backgrounds. The opportunities are endless!
You’ll find that cultural icons, concepts and activities are embedded into each of our electronic whiteboard galleries. Through the traditional music, authentic audio and culturally accurate dress and subject matter, students will gain an appreciation for the locations and cultures that use Spanish as their primary language.
Since electronic whiteboard software is designed to be physically manipulated, it naturally appeals to kinesthetic learners. In addition, our electronic whiteboard galleries include audio and video files, as well as full-color images to engage visual and auditory learners. As students touch, listen and move to interact with the software, their language centers are fully engaged in their most productive learning style.
Your instruction time is precious, and our goal is to give you the tools to maximize it. With the electronic whiteboard galleries in your classroom, you will be able to quickly respond to student need through creating interactive games, review activities and lesson plans. In just a few moments, you will be able to drag and drop image and audiovisual elements to create a completely responsive learning experience.
As technology becomes a higher priority for the education system, language teachers must be able to prove that they are supporting technology competency in their classrooms. Through utilizing the Calico Spanish electronic whiteboard galleries in your class, you are giving your students hands-on experience with important new technologies. As they create, manipulate and evaluate the electronic whiteboard lessons, they are more prepared to work with the ever- changing technological landscape of Spanish language studies.
The electronic whiteboard galleries from Calico Spanish are designed to create student-centered activites and project-based assignments that support higher-level thinking and evaluation. Through creating, analyzing and evaluating elements within the galleries, students are more engaged in their own cognitive processes. They also become more personally involved in the learning process, which makes for better retention and participation in the Spanish language classroom.
Pressure to meet state and national standards has become an integral part to Spanish language teaching. That is why our electronic whiteboard galleries reflect the overall ACTFL standards that the Calico Spanish curriculum is based on. Not only do they incorporate the general modes of proficiency (interpersonal, interpretive and presentation communication), but they incorporate cross-curricular elements of geography, mathematics and science.
The Calico Spanish electronic whiteboard gallery resource packs are an excellent addition to any elementary Spanish program. We know you will love them, and your students will benefit from the interactive elements in each pack. Still, if you don’t love them as much as we do, you can send them back for a full refund at any time.
