Spanish for School Personnel is the third book in the series Spanish at Work, published by Prentice Hall. This one-volume text integrates thematically related vocabulary, grammar, and culture, and focuses students on pragmatic, real-world language they will need in the school setting. It will also be in demand by "front-line" personnel in all areas of school operations who need Spanish to be able to communicate with the growing number of Hispanic students and their families. With an emphasis on learning to communicate appropriately in real-life situations, students master need-to-know phrases and vocabulary quickly and efficiently. Highlights: Spanish for School Personnel contains an introductory chapter, 10 core chapters, and two review chapters. The modular format of the chapter is evenly paced. Each of the two modules contains two vocabulary and two grammar sections. Summary vocabulary lists are included at the end of each chapter. End-of-chapter synthesis activities provide ample opportunities for four-skills practice. Careful and consistent progression of activities enables students to internalize the material by providing enough practice for them to feel comfortable communicating in real-life situations. The readings in Algo mas, which relate to the theme of each chapter, represent a wide variety of Spanish-speaking cultures. Real-world activities follow each reading, connecting students to the world beyond the classroom. An audio CD-ROM program accompanies the student text. A workbook and Web site www.prenhall.com/rush provide abundant opportunities for more practice in formats that appeal to a variety of students.Rush, Patricia is the author of 'Spanish for School Personnel', published 2003 under ISBN 9780131401341 and ISBN 0131401343.
