The Story Conéctate is a fresh approach in every way. With its focus on the most critical language for communication, its active presentation of vocabulary and grammar, and its inclusion of real-world culture throughout, the program provides a unique framework for the Introductory Spanish course, with two separate but complementary goals in mind: learning to use the language and appreciating the world that it comes from. What makes Conéctate so unique? A focused approach: The tailored scope and sequence of Conéctate allows students to concentrate on what they can reasonably be expected to learn in an introductory course, allowing time for systematic review and recycling. This offers a solution to the Introductory Spanish programs that, in an effort to cover everything, include too much grammar and rush students through the curriculum without spending sufficient time for true learning or mastery. Active learning: Conéctate carefully balances a mix of inductive and explicit vocabulary and grammar presentations, applying the concept of desirable difficulty throughout. This leads students to discover and retain the language, and avoids the common type of presentations that only allow for passive learning. Integration of culture: Language is culture and culture is language. This central idea shapes the way culture is treated in Conéctate: not as something separate from the language acquisition process, but as something that is integral to the process. Students acquire cultural knowledge and understanding in a natural way as they learn how the language is used within the rich and diverse Spanish-speaking world.

Looseleaf for Con ctate

Genre: Foreign Language Study

Students of Introductory Spanish learn best when they are connecting—with authentic culture, with each other as a community, and with the language as used in real-world settings. Conéctate sparks the curiosity that builds these connections as students drive toward communicative and cultural confidence and proficiency. The Conéctate program’s distinctive approach is built around the following principles. Focused approach: Conéctate concentrates on what Introductory Spanish students can reasonably be expected to learn, allowing for sustained engagement with the material that respects the natural process of language acquisition. An intentional focus, first on meaning and then on form, puts in action the best practices of second language pedagogy. Plus, Conéctate’s reduced grammar scope leaves more time for the systematic review and recycling of vocabulary and grammar required for students to achieve mastery of first-year skills. Fortifying this process at every turn is LearnSmartTM, a powerful, super-adaptive learning program that guides students on an individualized path toward mastery of all the vocabulary and grammar in Conéctate. Active learning: Conéctate gives students the opportunity to explore language and culture through interactive activities that keep them focused and engaged. Vocabulary and grammar in Conéctate are taught using an active learning approach, nudging students to discover new vocabulary and language rules through a carefully balanced mix of inductive and explicit presentations and hands-on learning. Students are similarly asked to take an active role in an immersive online game, Practice Spanish: Study Abroad, designed around a study abroad experience in which they leverage their language and cultural skills to accomplish tasks and solve problems in various real-world scenarios. Integration of culture: Building on the active learning theme, students develop and apply critical thinking skills as they draw personal conclusions about the rich culture presented throughout Conéctate. Culture is embedded within the language activities themselves, included in notes that expand on the activity at hand, and seen through the integrated video that forms the basis for many activities in each chapter of the text. This authentic, unscripted video introduces students to useful chunks of language, real-world Spanish, and a wide range of topics related to cultural themes. Conéctate’s stunning video was shot in Spain, Panama, Miami, Argentina, Costa Rica, and Mexico, and exposes students to a wide variety of people in each country who discuss topics that are familiar and engaging to students. Mobile Tools for Digital Success: The digital tools available in the Connect Spanish platform with Conéctate also successfully promote student progress by providing extensive opportunities to practice and hone their developing skills. These learning opportunities include online communicative activities, instant feedback, peerediting, sophisticated reporting, an immersive game, and an interactive eBook with embedded video and audio. The mobile-friendly platform allows students to engage in the course material anytime and everywhere. Connect is the only integrated learning system that empowers students by continuously adapting to deliver precisely what they need, when they need it, and how they need it, so that your class time is more engaging and effective. *Connect Spanish, including but not limited to the workbook/lab manual, LearnSmart, Practice Spanish: Study Abroad, the video program, and chat tools, is sold separately and does not come automatically with the purchase of the textbook.

Parallel Structures in Syntax

Author: Grant Goodall
Publisher: Cambridge University Press
ISBN: 0521109167
Release Date: 2009-02-12
Genre: Language Arts & Disciplines

This book proposes a radical revision in the definition of phrase markers, the fundamental object in the generative theory of syntax. Phrase markers have traditionally been defined in such a way that each node in the phrase marker must satisfy a relation of either dominance or precedence with every other node. Grant Goodall argues convincingly that the dominance and precedence requirement should be dropped. The argument is lucidly articulated and is supported by a comprehensive description and analysis of of coordination in English and of causative and restructuring constructions in the Romance languages. Parallel Structures in Syntax is a significant and thoughtful contribution to syntactic theory, and arguably provides the simplest and most elegant account available of many of the complex phenomena observed in coordination, causatives, and restructuring. It will interest not only theoretical linguists, but also computational linguists and cognitive scientists.

Genre: Foreign Language Study

Students learn best when they are connecting- with authentic culture, with each other as a community, and with the language as used in real-world settings. En avant! sparks the curiosity that builds these connections as students drive toward communicative and cultural confidence and proficiency in the introductory classroom. The En avant! program is built around the following distinctive principles: Focused approach: En avant! concentrates on what introductory French students can be reasonably expected to learn, allowing for sustained engagement with the material that respects the natural process of language acquisition. A reduced grammar scope leaves more time for the systematic review and recycling of vocabulary and grammar required for students to achieve mastery of first-year skills. Grammar topics that were deemed of secondary importance by our many reviewers are presented in the Par la suite section at the end of the book to allow maximum flexibility for those instructors who wish to extend their coverage of the grammar. Fortifying the acquisition process at every turn is LearnSmart™, evolutionary adaptive technology that builds a learning experience unique to each student’s individual needs. Through LearnSmart, students engage in targeted vocabulary and grammar practice so they are prepared to come to class ready to communicate. Active learning: En avant! gives students the opportunity to explore language and culture through interactive activities that keep them focused and engaged. Vocabulary and grammar in En avant! is taught using an active learning approach, nudging students to discover new vocabulary and language rules through a carefully balanced mix of inductive and explicit presentations and hands-on learning in the Communication en direct video section that begins each chapter, as well as in the Vocabulaire interactif and Grammaire interactive presentations. Integration of culture: Building on the active learning theme, students develop and apply critical-thinking skills in their analysis of the cultural trends and cultural products that are richly presented in En avant! The Communication en direct videos allow students to not only hear the language but to observe how the language is spoken in a cultural context. Vocabulary and grammar are often presented or practiced within a cultural context, and throughout each chapter, students are encouraged to make cross-cultural comparisons by responding to the thought-provoking questions such as those posed in the new Et chez vous? feature that accompanies the Chez les Français and Chez les Francophones texts. The culminating section of the chapter Culture en direct presents culture at the discourse level through cultural video presentations, authentic texts, feature-film clips, and songs, all related to the chapter theme. The stunning Salut de… video segments, shot in Paris, Montréal, Louisiana, Tunisia, and Tahiti, also provide windows into the diverse cultures of the Francophone world. Mobile Tools for Digital Success: Connect French, McGraw-Hill’s digital teaching and learning environment, is now mobile enabled for tablets, allowing students to engage in their course material via the devices they use every day.

Kontakte continues to offer a truly communicative approach that supports functional proficiency, supported by the full suite of digital tools available in Connect German (now including LearnSmart®!).

Furthermore, the program now offers LearnSmart®, an adaptive learning program that helps students learn grammar and vocabulary more efficiently by tailoring the experience to individual student needs.· Communication in meaningful contexts: Students read and listen to comprehensible German and have ample opportunities to use it in interview, information-gap, role-play, autograph, writing,and other personalized activities that are theme-based. The video segments—Interviews and Perspektiven—feature interviews with a variety of speakers that allow students to hear authentic German in context. They provide models for talking about topics using authentic language, guiding students in communicating with one another. In the Connect activities for the student textbook and Arbeitsbuch,students can also take advantage of the audio and video live chat tool to communicate with their classmates online. In Connect German, students have full access to the digitally enhanced eBook, the online Arbeitsbuch activities, LearnSmart®,and all of the accompanying audio and video resources, giving them the ability to interact with the materials (and one other) as often as they wish. A solid theoretical foundation: Firmly grounded second-language acquisition research, Kontakte also supports the National Standards as outlined in the Standards for Foreign Language Learning in the 21st Century. As presented in the Standards, the five Cs—Communication, Cultures, Connections, Comparisons,and Communities—provide a framework for what students should know and be able to do as a result of their language study. The five Cs are present in countless ways throughout the program, particularly in the wealth of communicative activities and cultural content. Students are also encouraged to explore connections by linking their study of German with their own lives and other subjects of study, to make comparisons between their world and that of German-speaking people, and to learn about real-world German-speaking communities. Kontakte also integrates several modes of language, as described in the ACTFL Proficiency Descriptors.The activities, exercises, and tasks offer students a wide variety of opportunities for communication and interaction in interpersonal, interpretive,and presentational modes. For example,the many interviews in Kontakte require students to negotiate meaning and therefore reinforce the interpersonal mode of communication. The diversity of readings, whether literary, cultural, or encyclopedic, requires students to interpret information within context and apply it to new contexts.
