June & July 2016 – Curriculum Design

 Curriculum Design

In addition to co-writing and reviewing, we did the layout and design for Encuentro‘s curriculum, Tecno-y-Trabajo. We ensured the design would be user-friendly, well organized, and have a techie, yet friendly, feel. We designed one for instructors and one for students, in addition to designing activity sheets. Encuentro will begin using the curriculum — which teaches immigrant students computer and job skills at the same time — this fall.

Curriculum Development & Design – Computer Literacy + Job Training







Our Role

Curriculum review, writing, design/layout  – Review Encuentro’s existing Spanish-language adult learning curriculum and provide recommendations on content modification, literacy level, language consistency, and engagement. Write new content and/or modify existing content. Design layout for an instructor and student version in Spanish. This is for a Spanish-language adult education class that combines skill building in computer literacy and job training.

Soda Creek Consulting was an excellent partner helping Encuentro in the development and design of our Spanish language computer training curriculum.  They brought expertise in the areas of basic literacy, language and cultural accessibility and curriculum design.  We hope this is the first of many more collaborations on future curricula!

May 2016 – Curriculum Development

We’re happy to be working with Encuentro again! Sara has collaborated with Andrea Plaza, Director at Encuentro, and Veronica Salazar, computer instructor at Encuentro, for many years now. We’re currently working with them to assist Veronica in the development of a computer + job skills curriculum in Spanish. We’re reviewing and modifying content, ensuring consistency and an appropriate literacy level, and doing the overall design and layout of both the instructor and student versions.

March 2016 – Message Development

March 2016 – Message Development for Sexual Violence Prevention Initiative

Soda Creek is contracted with the New Mexico Department of Health to develop messages for a sexual violence prevention initiative. This month our team went through many versions of messages using both informal brainstorming and a formal, step-by-step message development process. We also met with partners who run rape crisis centers across the state to test the messages with them.
