Abstract

This session considers standards-based instructional design from the viewpoint of learning resources in the form of text books and their supplements. Through a comparison of how the ACTFL World-Readiness Standards are incorporated into text books meant for high school and college Spanish courses, the presentation will focus on how the Standards are employed, whether planning with backward design has been utilized by the authors or if it remains for the teacher to do, and the need to compensate for any short comings in the texts.
