Why REPORTEROS?

A student-centered, 21st century, comprehensive language and culture program
With REPORTEROS, students no longer take a passive role when learning the language; they find themselves at the very center of language learning as doers and creators.

Students interact with Spanish-speaking cultures through thematic units, authentic resources, integrated technology, and exciting real-world projects.

The three modes of communication—interpretive, interpersonal and presentational—are integrated into the lesson sequences.

Intercultural skills are taught by comparing language and culture, reflecting upon the unique features of different countries, and accepting differences while rejecting stereotypes. 

A robust Assessment Program featuring Integrating Performance Assessments is included for each unit.

A communicative program where real-world language and projects take center stage

In REPORTEROS, grammar, vocabulary, and discourse work towards communication. Students are truly capable of speaking and creating in Spanish.

Real-world projects, key components of the backwards design model, invite students to extend and personalize their learning experience by creating various real-world products, such as an interview, a leaflet, or a comic strip.

A fun, meaningful, and motivating approach to Spanish

In REPORTEROS, new words, functions, and structures of the Spanish language are…

  1. discovered in a variety of interesting contexts,
  2. explored through inductive reasoning and/or language comparison,
  3. practiced in order to meet key objectives through meaningful activities and a multitude of games that create a stimulating and engaging environment.
A gateway to culture and language through authentic materials
Students visit a variety of Spanish-speaking communities and delve into engaging topics of interest to young people.

An abundance of authentic materials lead students to a deeper understanding of the cultural products, practices, and perspectives of Spanish-speaking communities in the Americas, Spain, and beyond.

REPORTEROS includes essential questions that are grounded in each unit and foster critical thinking skills.

An invaluable tool for differentiation and accessibility

REPORTEROS helps teachers respond to the diverse needs, readiness, interests, and learning profiles they encounter in the classroom.

The program includes numerous materials that allow for differentiated instruction as well as complementary activities for heritage learners.

The Teacher’s Edition offers suggestions to adapt the content to all learners and all types of intelligences (visual, linguistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, etc.).

In addition, REPORTEROS features an accessible layout suitable for students who face learning challenges:

  • Instructions are simplified and action verbs are noted in bold.
  • Fonts are clear and easy to read for students with dyslexia.
  • Grammar structures are color-coded.
  • Vocabulary is presented in a highly visual format.
  • Videos are available with closed captioning for students who have hearing impairments.
A promoter of equality and inclusion in the classroom and beyond
REPORTEROS offers the opportunity to raise students’ awareness of the richness and diversity of the Spanish-speaking world.

The program fosters an understanding of global equality, social justice, and an unbiased, inclusive worldview.
