Instructional materials published by Santillana USA are standards based and research based. This applies to our Spanish as a world language elementary and secondary programs, Descubre el español con Santillana (K–5) and Español Santillana (6–12), as well as our Spanish language arts heritage and native speaker programs, Yabisi K–6 and En Espanol 7–12. These Santillana USA Spanish programs evidence their alignment and correlation to standards-based instruction through standards checklists (found in all Teacher Guides units and lessons), Scope and Sequence documents, and the specific correlations that we have produced to evidence the alignment of our programs to the ELA CCSS.
All of the Santillana USA Spanish programs help students communicate in all modes of expression, developing listening, speaking, reading, and writing skills to ensure students use the language effectively.
