About MAPAS

MAPAS is a program aimed at North American teenage students learning Spanish at the introductory level. Its innovative design follows a project-based, content-focused approach. Its main goal is to stimulate students to build knowledge through explorative and expansive learning. The Spanish classroom becomes a space where students develop 21st-century skills, such as collaboration, creativity, critical thinking, and communication.

Why MAPAS?

  • A contemporary view of Hispanic cultures  through engaging texts, themes, and topics. Students are motivated to act and create in Spanish.
  • A pedagogical sequence in which grammar, vocabulary, and discourse work towards communication. Students are truly capable of speaking and creating in Spanish.
  • Groundbreaking content and language integration. Students use the language in interdisciplinary scenarios related to their own academic experiences, which helps them develop professional skills and prepare for future careers.
  • Intercultural competence, enabling critical thinking about essential questions from a multidimensional, contemporary, and inclusive perspective that is free of stereotypes.
  • An approach that is open to all learners and all types of intelligences (visual, linguistic, interpersonal, intrapersonal, etc.). In addition, its diverse and stimulating vision of cultural realities embraces all the identities and communities in the Hispanic world —and in the students' world as well.
  • Options for online, hybrid, and flipped classroom modes, which optimizes class time. Students can prepare independently before the class session thus maximizing classroom communication and collaboration.
  • MAPAS is the product of authentic student‑centered design. Students make decisions and create projects which are not only personally relevant but also academically, and they take a leading active role in their own learning.

Unique features

Among its many new features, we would like to draw your attention to a particular resource that sets MAPAS apart from other programs: textos mapeados and textos locutados available in different varieties of Spanish.

Textos mapeados

These texts have been transformed into “roadmaps” for students with the following three elements highlighted and color-coded:

  • Frequently-used word combinations and phrases
  • Common connectors and discourse markers
  • Structures that contain verbs, nouns, and adjectives with prepositions

By using this feature, students can exercise the recognition, acquisition and production of a linguistic repertoire that goes beyond simple words, allowing them to communicate with greater fluency and accuracy from the very beginning.

Textos locutados

These texts are read aloud by Spanish-speakers in four different varieties of Spanish: from Colombia, Mexico, Spain, and the Caribbean (Puerto Rico and Cuba).

This feature allows students to listen to the text while they read along, listen after they have read the text themselves, or practice and check their own Spanish pronunciation, among many other possibilities.
