ConTextos is a platform which uses a selection of mapped course readings as pedagogic frame for the independent student to navigate texts holistically in order to understand how genre, function and grammar interact.
This top-down, function-based instructional tool complements intermediate-advanced instruction. Its aim is to provide learners with an opportunity to explore the content of a broad range of textual samples from different authors, learning how to use them as repositories of strategies to be applied in their own writing.
|1. Browse through the structure (Estructura) of your chosen text to understand how information is presented in different written genres and discover new content.|
|2. Explore a broad array of language functions (Funciones) to find out how Spanish can be used creatively to convey a message effectively and grab readers’ attention.|
|3. Revise and practice grammar (Gramática) in context with interactive activities, bite sized videos and extra resources.|
