Fisher Hill’s English for the Spanish Speaker workbooks have passed California’s social content review for supplementary materials. This means the workbooks:
Portray accurately and equitably the cultural and racial diversity of American society;
Demonstrate the contribution of minority groups and males and females to the development of California and the United States;
Emphasize people in varied, positive, and contributing roles in order to influence students’ school experiences constructively; and
Do not contain inappropriate references to commercial brand names, products, and corporate or company logos.
Each workbook has eight lessons. https://fisher-hill.com/english-series-to-english-for-the-spanish-speaker/ In Books 1 and 2, the lessons are about every day activities. In Books 3 and 4, four lessons are about every day activities and the other four are about United States history or government. The print in the workbooks is large. The reading level in Book 1 is at the first and second grade level. The books get progressively more difficult. The reading level for Book 4 is at the fourth grade reading level. Each lesson begins with a vocabulary list, then a conversation, story, activity pages, and finally an answer key. The lessons are bilingual with the word lists, conversations, and stories presented in Spanish and English. The directions for the activity pages are in Spanish but the activities are in English. There are two dictionaries at the back of each workbook: a Spanish dictionary and an English dictionary. There is a CD available for each workbook so the student can listen to the vocabulary lists, conversations and stories in English.
