How Renaissance Academy increased student engagement in their elementary and middle school Spanish classes with the Sonrisas Spanish Curriculum.
Renaissance Academy in Lehi, UT prides itself on offering an exemplary foreign language program with students enrolled in daily World Language classes. Spanish teachers had been using a series from McGraw-Hill for grades 1-5 and from Holt-McDougal in grades 6-8, but they weren’t seeing acceptable levels of engagement in their students. After implementing the Sonrisas Spanish Curriculum, teachers experienced a much higher level of engagement in their students and a more positive attitude towards Spanish class.
