This just-published unit can be the first full story of the school year for a Spanish I class. It can be told at the beginning of the second or third week of class, or it can be saved until later. It explains how to get students reading right away.

Participants in my seminars and workshops often ask how to get beginning students can quickly begin to read independently. Baby steps like this unit are what works. These are the tips, tricks and techniques that make everything work smoothly and help students to develop the skills and confidence they need to get them reading early on.
