Also wondering what curriculum is being used, if any, in your classrooms

We had TERRIBLY outdated curriculum at my school when I arrived (like copyright 1998 😳). First year I used all self-made curriculum and felt like I needed to try and find something the following year so I did a lot of research. Found Pearson Auténtico and I really like it. Taught from it last year and really quickly realized the the Spanish 3 curriculum was WAY too advanced for my kids so we switched to Fluenz. However, I really like the levels 1 & 2. They build on one another well, and although I skip around a bit still (I wait until 2nd semester to introduce conjugation in Spanish 1) it was still great. The online resources are good too

We use Auténtico as well. It’s decent but I don’t rely on it. I’m trying to incorporate more CI this year.

Has anyone had the conversation on how we get Ss and Ts ready for returning in the fall?

Need sometime to process together, get some SEL, be face to face social again, etc. Just wondering if districts out there have gotten a head start on this task.
