    New! TRC Atlas Spanish Texts at Dual Language Schools

    The TRC Atlas Spanish texts have been revised with authentic text to improve your students’ reading experience. These changes have been made based on feedback from the LAUSD Multilingual & Multicultural Education Department (MMED), dual- language schools, and Spanish literacy authors and experts, including Elizabeth Jimenez and Gisela O’Brien. Syntax, vocabulary, and cohesion of the texts have been enhanced to be more appropriate for Spanish language readers.
