Writing, Audio, and Video Workbook Information Sp. I

Although not a requirement for class, I strongly recommend and encourage students to purchase the Realidades Writing, Audio, & Video Workbook. This workbook will be used almost daily in my class. It is used for listening comprehension as well as writing activities. Students who can write in their own workbook find it a convenience and a great aid to learning and studying. I've found that students who do not have a WAV, many times don't do the activity (they find it bothersome to copy the information from the projector screen or class workbook). The workbook can be purchased from Amazon.com (ISBN #0-13-036007-4 for Level 1 (Spanish I).  You may also consider purchasing the Practice Workbook/Writing, Audio, and Visual combo workbook. I assign the Practice Workbook pages as worksheets on School Loop. Again, this is not a requirement for the class. It is only a recommendation.
