Consider this a virtual beg for reviewers (insert cute begging eyes here). The benefit for people who check out the Techbook is it provides a collection of resources for 1st year Spanish that are amassed and grouped by topic.
There are four guiding questions for review on the feedback page for teachers (pick a page Unit 3+ and a question):
1. Are the activities engaging?
2. Are there different activities for different kinds and different levels of learner?
4. The research found different areas that needed to be covered so students could be successful as language learners and globally aware students: listening, speaking, reading, writing, vocabulary, grammar, collaboration, study skills, and use of authentic resources. Is there evidence of these in the digital resource?
The teacher feedback page also includes links to the hidden teacher pages for each unit. These include additional resources, writing prompts, and miscellaneous ideas for teaching each topic.
For the past year (literally) I have gone through the process of creating a digital techbook to enhance the learning and practice resources for a 6th grade Spanish class. During the same time frame, my school was moving towards professional learning communities with common unit maps and common assessments. This made work on the techbook easier and more challenging at the same time. When the storyboard was in line with the decisions of the group, it was validation. There had to be multiple adjustments to accommodate differences in opinion and compromise.
