The Student Activities Manual has been comprehensively revised, with increased numbers of student practice activities and much greater ease of grading. Each Paso is now comprised of 5 to 7 activities specifically correlated to the vocabulary and grammar sections, in easy-to-check formats, along with 1 or 2 activities of more open-ended, personalized design. The Vamos a leer sections have been extensively rewritten, with updated strategies and numerous new readings. Similarly, the Vamos a escribir sections have been completely rewritten and now feature more step-by-step guidance to improving writing skills and more real-life writing tasks. Listening activities and additional video activities that complement those in the textbook are also in the workbook.

Meet the Author

Patti J. Marinelli has been teaching Spanish at the University of South Carolina for more than 29 years. After receiving training in the ACTFL Oral Proficiency Interview early in her career, she began to focus on proficiency as the organizing principle for her classroom. When the language department decided to refine its placement policy and create new courses for students with previous study of Spanish, Marinelli collaborated with colleagues to find the best ways to teach this group of students.

Lizette Mujica Laughlin, a native of Cuba, is a graduate of the University of South Carolina, where she has been on the faculty for more than 20 years. She is an ACTFL-certified oral and writing proficiency tester/trainer in Spanish/English. Her proficiency training has played a pivotal role in her professional development, for example, as upper-level course coordinator at the University of South Carolina, author, and tester/trainer for ACTFL.
