Not only the Spanish Immersion Programs in the United States benefit from this project. Several sectors of the society benefit from it. Among them, all the schools in Spanish in the world because the books helps those students whose first language is Spanish and those whose first language is English. It also benefits the schools who teach Spanish as a second language and the home school programs. The cultural approach brings awareness of the richness of the Hispanic culture and helps students and parents to overcome the fear of the unknown and break most cultural barriers. This collection of books is also the tool for a language teaching curriculum for elementary schools that will be implemented as a pilot project beginning next school year.
What I'll do with $5,000
I will use this money to support four expansions of the project. - A marketing campaign. That includes a promotional video, publicity in social media and visit to schools. - Recording of 7 songs for the FONOCULTURA books. I am writing the songs and I have a team of musicians who will sing and play them. I am planning to have this first album songs released by the middle of 2023. -Creation of products that complement the books: shirts, stuffed animals, Colombian hats and sandals, etc. -A new computer with the last version of photoshop. My husband is the illustrator of my books and he needs better technology for his work. I am aware that what I requiere for these expansions is much more, but I am sure that there are other means to reach all those goals.
