Excerpts

Welcome toIdentidades!Identidadesis a two-semester intermediate Spanish program that puts the Cultures, Connections, and Comparisons goals of the National Standards on virtually every page of the text and its ancillary components.Identidadesprovides a much-needed balance in intermediate Spanish programs by presenting and treating the cultures of the Hispanic world in ways that are both appealing and appropriate for the intellectual level of college students and by simultaneously maintaining reasonable expectations for the understanding and productive use of grammatical concepts and structures. Communicative and rich in cultural content, Identidades engages the whole student, supports the language-learning process, and prepares students for the more challenging courses beyond the second year. Key features of theIdentidadesProgram A culture-centered approach to language learning that engages students in analysis and research on historical, cultural, and artistic expressions of the Spanish-speaking world. Engaging and varied readings that draw on expository and literary texts from a variety of sources. An interactive, student-centered approach that provides many opportunities for students to collaborate in pair and group activities and thus improve their interpersonal skills in Spanish. A strategy- and process-oriented approach to reading and writing, whereby students learn to apply their well-developed cognitive skills to communication in a second language. A straightforward approach to grammar explanations, combined with carefully sequenced activities. Superior integration of the SCs of theNational Standards for Foreign Language Learning. A comprehensive introduction to literary themes, genres, and authors that will prepare students for their first upper-division course in literature. Listening activities that expose students to a range of text types, voices, and regional varieties of Spanish as they develop insights that come from hearing individuals talk about their lives and work in a specific cultural and geographical context. Research-oriented writing activities that prepare students for courses beyond the second year. Philosophy ofIdentidadesThe titleIdentidadesreflects the multi-faceted nature of the Hispanic world and its people and the central goal of this program: to bring students to a level of language acquisition in which they are able to explore and experience many of the historical, cultural, and artistic manifestations of the Spanish-speaking world. The program also aims to develop students' knowledge of the Spanish-speaking world. Students may begin the program with a narrow idea of what it means to be "Hispanic," but by the end of the program, they will understand that the Spanish-speaking world is made up of many races, ethnic groups, and cultures.1. Expansion of cultural knowledge Although still in need of systematic attention to language skill development, students in the second year also profit by using their language skills to learn about the Hispanic world. Topics that may have been presented in general terms in the first year are treated in greater depth. Cultural phenomena are presented in their historical contexts. This accomplishes two goals of theIdentidadesprogram: (a) to avoid stereotyping and overly global and simplistic contrasts between Hispanic cultures and those of the students, and (b) to support development of the skills of narration, description, comparison, and contrast. This approach highlights processes of change over time that are common to all cultures.2. Development and transfer of cognitive skills Much of what goes on in a second-year language course is not novel activity for college students. They read and interpret literary texts in their literature and composition courses; they
