5 Star ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Reviews for this Tierra Incógnita season 1 guide
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Loved the suggestion of this series and the materials created to accompany it! My students are loving watching an episode every Friday and this resource gives just enough content to make it more valuable without weighing them down with too much to do! – Julie W (used with 11th grade Spanish)
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Allison’s resources are always super helpful. I had first heard of Tierra Incógnita from her and my students have been pretty engaged and into the show! It’s tough to find a show in Spanish that’s not too childish (Go! Vive a tu manera) or too adult (Élite). But Tierra Incógnita is a good balance between and perfect for every level. This season guide is awesome to use and keeps students accountable while they watch an episode. I love the different types of questions to switch things up! – Kimberly C (9th-12th grade)
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ We are watching this series currently and this resource is extremely versatile! I used a sheet for each episode for the first couple until I realized the students were so engrossed in the series that they stopped focusing on the paper. There were ideas in here to do after the episodes so we are doing that instead so they can just watch. – Alissa D (12th grade Spanish)
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ Thank you again! My students LOVED watching the show and are begging for more! – Nicole B (used with 12th grade Spanish IV)
- ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ This is a great show, and the packet is awesome! It makes learning these very basic skills a lot more engaging. Thanks a ton!
