Suggestions for semester to trimester changing for Spanish?

Please respond to Paula at her e-mail address below if you have suggestions.


I need help from our members.  My school is switching to trimesters next year.  Each trimester will be 12 weeks long.  All core classes (Spanish 1 - 2 - 3 - 4) will be taught 1st and 2nd trimester with the 3rd trimester reserved for electives.  So all of my core classes will now be condensed from 36 weeks to 24.  I will teach an 8th grade Exploratory during the 3rd trimester in addition to several English classes. 

Does anyone have any suggestions as to what should be taught and what "can be omitted"?  I am using the Realidades textbook.  I have several copies of Spanish for Mastery 2 & 3 on hand as well.
