Portafolio, Vol. 2
Published: January 24, 2008
Today’s students have sensibilities and needs that are very different from those of even ten years ago. Visual and auditory media have changed dramatically in recent years; most textbooks have not kept pace with these changes. Student purchasing habits have also changed dramatically.
Portafolio addresses these changes by offering students a visually and aurally innovative and exciting introductory Spanish program, one that also offers new purchasing options. The design of Portafolio is colorful, lively and easy-to-navigate; the program includes an array of video, audio and print components, integrated with the textbook in a variety of ways to address individual learning styles; and the program is available in an innovative two-volume soft-cover format, which allows students to purchase only the portion they are using in the current semester.
These exciting new features and purchasing options are designed to address the needs of the students in your classroom today!
Portafolio-to-Go is a special link on the Portafolio Online Learning Center http://www.mhhe.com/portafolio that houses downloadable digital assets. Students are able to easily access and download to their mp3 player key resources that support the Portafolio program.
