Each component of the MÁS experience is designed to spark curiosity and inspire critical thinking. From its image-rich design to its thought-provoking readings and engaging collection of videos and short films, MÁS expands students’ language skills while also broadening their perspective of the world around them. MÁS places a strong emphasis on carefully scaffolded activities that guide students to create with language, ensuring that students benefit from a wealth of opportunities for communication practice, in class and online, and across multiple discourse types. Through its inclusive approach to diversity, MÁS exposes students to varying perspectives and viewpoints, better preparing them to become global citizens. Providing students the tools needed to bridge cultural and social divides, MÁS motivates a new generation of students to communicate in Spanish and to explore the richness and diversity of the Spanish-speaking world. When paired with McGraw Hill’s Connect digital platform, MÁS provides a winning combination of engaging content and extensive practice to help students meet second-year expectations.
