Content/ Scope: A dictionary that is targeted to a general audience with over 100,000 translations and 80,000 entries. There are also sample sentences for students or learners who are trying to learn more about sentence structure. This dictionary also contains pronunciations for words that students may struggle to learn to say.
Accuracy/ Authority/ Bias: Merriam- Webster is a well-known dictionary publisher. They have been creating not only English dictionaries but also dictionaries with translations and other languages such as this one. Many schools and libraries utilize these dictionaries.
Arrangement/ Presentation: This dictionary is arranged alphabetically with the Spanish words being first then the English translation. The pronunciations are after each word to aide students in learning to say the word as they encounter it. There are also some example sentences following words, as well as the definition of each word following it. The definitions are what each word means in Spanish.
Relation to other works: There are many dictionaries for students and many Spanish dictionaries but students in middle school are typically just starting this new language for the first time or they could be ELL learners coming to us. They need the support of a great comprehensive dictionary to help them. This dictionary would serve the purposes of both student groups well.
Accessibility/ Diversity: This dictionary will allow students who are learning to speak Spanish to utilize it as well as students who are ELL learners and native speakers of Spanish. Students who are native speakers of Spanish will be able to utilize this dictionary to see what words mean in English and students who are just learning to speak Spanish will be able to use this dictionary to help aid them in their studies or in being able to speak to our ELL learners.
