Finding relevant HW assignments (Travel 4) for specific class curriculum (Preterite Tense)

I have a class of students who I am testing Duolingo for Schools with and they are focused on learning the Preterite Tense in our weekly Spanish lessons. I'd like to give them Duolingo HW assignments that are specific to the Preterite Tense.

I understand Duolingo doesn't offer explicit instructions for: "if learning preterite [insert any specific course material] use these three lessons. And it may not be apart of their roadmap in the future. But if any educators out there have hacked together some type of 1to1 guide with references Spanish tenses/curriculum correspond to Duolingo lessons/assignments, I would love to hear from you.

If this beta/test program with my 1st class works I would roll this out to beginners through advanced intermediate learners in which case I might end up creating this type of 1to1 guide myself. Any feedback is welcome!

Fellow Spanish teacher here, saludos!

I direct students to the Tip associated with each lesson for explicit instruction.

I use the published Spanish scope and sequence to decide which lessons to assign when I am teaching particular grammar points.

The link is here.

Hope this helps.

I have a feeling this link is one of many treasures in a much larger google drive folder with resources for people like me, no? :) Let me know if you have access to that folder if my assumption is correct.

You could also join the Educator's Network (see the sticky on the front page of the Educator's Forum) and have access to a lot of supports that I find invaluable.

Unfortunately, I do not have access to the folder to tell you what else might be there. I found the link on this blog.

Another educator, Jorma, has painstakingly inputed all the skills. https://forum.duolingo.com/comment/37252129 We are trying to find a way to push it out to everyone. Jorma, you may just have to make a post in the meantime.

Not a problem. I update the doc with the # of lessons each skills has.

¡Muchas gracias! ¡Muy buen trabajo!

Gracias! Exactly what I was looking for.

I seem to recall that there was a lot of preterite tense with the absolutely hilarious "farm" section.

But at any rate, if you look on the left side of your classroom, you will see a button for "curriculum." That tells you what skill has what. You can add this to what DraNuevo has pointed you to.

Madame, usted se merece un lingote!

Ha ha, no los necesito. No hay muchas cosas para comprar con los lingotes, ¿no? Yo nado en lingotes. :) ¿Ud. también?
