Check Out the Español Santillana Materials

Tour of Materials (video)

The three main components of the Español Santillana program are the Interactive Student Book, the Fans Online Practice Activities, and the Practice Workbook.
Let’s take a look at each component.

The Interactive Student Book is a multimedia version of the print textbook. It has easy navigation, point-of-use audios and videos, and tools such as sticky notes, bookmarks, glossary, and search. Within the Materials index, it is divided by unit to facilitate the loading speed and ease of use.

For example, click on the Materials tab, then open the Unit 2 folder.

Take a look at the Interactive Student Book.

The Fans Online Practice Activities are online-only activities that precisely follow the progression of each Student Book unit, allowing for easy integration. There are interactive activities, videos, and explanations of content.

Go back to the Unit 2 menu and click on the U2 Fans Online Activities folder. Click on the activity name to view it.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the code after each activity name is meant to let you know which section of the unit the activity corresponds to. Example: (D1.V) = Desafío 1, Vocabulario section. That way, you will know which activities correspond to each section of a unit.

Fans Online activities allow unlimited attempts. The Gradebook registers the grade after each attempt. Teachers can review a student’s attempts by clicking on the activity name and viewing the Teacher Dashboard.

The Practice Workbook online contains reading and writing activities nearly identical to those found in the print version. Teachers can easily combine the two as they see fit.

From the Materials index, navigate to Unidad 2, then click on the U2 Practice Workbook folder. Click on the activity name to view the Teacher Dashboard. Click on View Activity to see the activity.

IMPORTANT: Please note that the code after each activity name is meant to let you know which section of the unit the activity corresponds to. Example: (D1.V) = Desafío 1, Vocabulario section. That way, you will know which activities correspond to each section of a unit.

If the activity is a closed (automatically graded) activity, it will allow the student three attempts to complete it correctly. You can see the number of attempts remaining in the upper right-hand corner of the activity.

After each attempt, the student has the option to Try Again or submit their grade to the Gradebook. After getting 100%, finishing all three attempts, or clicking Submit, the activity will be finalized.

In either case, the student will not be able to continue attempting the activity.

If the activity is an open (teacher-graded) activity, it will allow only one attempt. In this type of activity, the upper right-hand corner will say 1/1.

IMPORTANT: The Gradebook will only show the grade from the student’s most recent attempt. To see all attempts, navigate to the activity name and click on it to see the Teacher Dashboard.

Upon finishing the Activity and clicking Accept:

  • The student’s responses will be recorded in the Teacher Dashboard. Click on the name of the activity to view the Teacher Dashboard.

  • The teacher can review student answers to the activities and change the grade if necessary. See Grade Assignments and Activities for more information.
