The Acceso curriculum, which debuted in Fall 2008, has been adopted by numerous colleges and universities and is widely used by Spanish teachers at the secondary level, particularly those teaching Advanced Placement courses. The new edition of Acceso updates existing materials, remove items that have become less relevant with the passage of time, and creates new modules that reflect more current issues in the Spanish-speaking world.  This new edition of Acceso also includes upgrades to the online quizzes, the online glossary, and the explanatory grammar videos. To aid in the adoption process, the revised edition also includes an improved instructor resource area that includes updated daily lesson plans, sample tests, and other curricular supports. This work is accompanied by a renewed push to promote Acceso both as an Open Access resource and as a venue for sharing curricular materials.
