You can teach culture in the target language.
Your students can communicate with memorizing conjugation charts.
You can love your job–and you can feel confident that you are making a difference in your students’ lives, wherever they may lead.
Those sound like big promises, don’t they? I make big promises because I have seen big results. When you learn how to make input comprehensible, no content is off limits. You can teach about anything that gets you and your students excited! You can teach about real things–things that matter to your students and things that matter in our world.
The SOMOS Curriculum is designed for teachers that want to provide rich, compelling input to their students but aren’t sure where to begin. Perhaps you don’t have the time or the desire to plan the kinds of cultural lessons that you want to teach. Perhaps you are new to CI–newly ditching the textbook–and aren’t sure where to begin. Perhaps you are looking for a teacher tribe to connect with.
No matter what reason brought you here, SOMOS will provide you a clear path forward.
The SOMOS Curriculum covers Levels 1 and 2, and it will fill three years of language classes (as it was originally designed for Spanish 1A / 1B / 2).
