By connecting the communicative goals and Can-Do Statements in almost every section in each lesson, students have the opportunity to check their understanding of the lesson’s communicative goals and identify any areas where they need further review and practice.
All short films now offer an interactive version with checkpoints, so students can check their comprehension with integrated viewing activities as they watch the films. The short films can also be used by instructors as a presentation tool in class, to answer the questions or initiate discussion as a group.
Throughout the instructor text, standards correlations for specific activities appear on the same page or spread so that you see them at point of use. New annotations include more support for interculturality using a sequence of Investigate, Reflect, and Explain prompts related to cultural content.
