This grant is for a set of Discussion 4 Learning VocabulArte Levels A-D. VocabulArte provides support for all students, native speakers of Spanish and Spanish learners, to develop high-level academic vocabulary and language in Spanish through engaging discussions of fine art images and real-world photos from around the world. The use of images, discussion, and explicit vocabulary instruction provides scaffolding for all levels of readers and language learners.
VocabulArte lessons address the following standards:
SL.5-8.1 Engage effectively in a range of collaborative discussions (one-on-one, in groups, and teacher-led) with diverse partners on grade 5 topics and texts, building on others' ideas and expressing their own clearly.
SL.5-8.2 Summarize a written text read aloud or information presented in diverse media and formats, including visually, quantitatively, and orally.
SL.5-8.3 Summarize the points a speaker makes and explain how each claim is supported by reasons and evidence.
