This new textbook for first-year students of Galician Language and Literature forms part of the Baía Edicións educational collection covering all levels of the compulsory secondary school cycle (ESO).

The textbook comprises 12 teaching units, divided into eight blocks of lessons and an end-of-chapter skills worksheet for revision and self-assessment. The volume also contains a number of appendices, including a complete grammar section, three grammar board games for verb practice, a reading worksheet template and project topics for each term (‘Names and Surnames of Galicia’, ‘The Words Around Me’ and ‘Our Class Soundtrack’)

1) Reading. Selection of texts based on student tastes and interests, literary value, diversity of genre (narrative, poetic, dramatic, journalistic, advertising, etc.), gender balance, and range of topics.

2) Writing. Use of different types of text (everyday, formal, informal etc.)

3) Vocabulary. Illustrated themed vocabulary, phraseology, lexical and semantic accuracy, etc.

4) Grammar. How language works, grammatical categories, textual grammar analysis, etc.

5) Speaking.  Speaking practice based on different communication situations: Who are you? Where do you live? What’s the weather like? etc.

6) Spelling. Accents, punctuation, use of certain letters, compound words and phrases, etc.

7) Literature. Genre, style and technique.

8) Study technique (units 1, 3, 5 and 7) and Language and Society (units 2, 4, 6 and 8). Analysis and summary strategies; academic essay writing; fun, interactive worksheets for basic sociolinguistic concepts.

Each unit concludes with a revision worksheet focusing on the seven competences stated in the LOMCE, together with a self-assessment sheet in relation to the skills and learning acquired in the unit. The worksheet is based on a topical, targeted non-literary text, the content of which varies from unit to unit. The first set of exercises is designed to test comprehension of the text, while the second allows students to practise and consolidate the competences developed in the unit.
