From Beginner to Native Speaker: Deeply Differentiated Instruction

All Spanish-speaking students, whether they are just beginning to learn the language or speak Spanish as their first language, need to grow and strengthen their Spanish literacy skills while also meeting grade-level standards and college and career readiness targets. With Español’s targeted differentiation, students can work towards both goals simultaneously!

Español delivers the same grade-appropriate nonfiction content to every student in the classroom while automatically tailoring it to each learner’s individual Spanish reading level. Students then read a version of the same article written with grade-level or higher text complexity, supported by targeted and purposeful teacher instruction. 

  • Lessons available at 7 different Lexile® levels in Spanish
  • Students build transferable literacy skills with Español’s custom strategic curriculum, aligned to the Common Core State Standards
  • Courses aligned to International’s grade-level science and social studies standards prepare Spanish-speaking students to succeed in the content areas
  • SBAC Challenge courses give students regular, targeted practice for the SBAC, integrating technology-enhanced items to help them achieve even greater depths of knowledge – all in Spanish

Assessments Built Just for Spanish-Speaking Students

Español features built-in summative and embedded formative assessments so educators can easily measure and monitor their students’ Spanish literacy growth and make data-driven decisions that can accelerate their success across the curriculum.

It all starts with LevelSet™, the only Lexile™ assessment available for measuring students’ comprehension of nonfiction text in Spanish.

  • Students begin with the pre-test, which quickly measures their exact Lexile reading level in Spanish
  • LevelSet interim and post-tests provide a summative measure of student growth for the semester or school year

Throughout the school year, Español’s ongoing and embedded formative Lexile assessments:

  • Continually measure students’ Spanish reading levels and mastery of the Common Core State Standards
  • Fuel the adaptive content system, which automatically adjusts text complexity when students are ready for a greater challenge

Best of all, these assessments are integrated into the instructional routine, so teachers can focus on teaching instead of assessing!
