The cultural component for Spanish 3! Use it in the third year at the high school level or in the third semester community college class. The cultural element is done! It is organized, put together carefully and well so the teacher can walk into the classroom and start. Enjoy!
This is a cultural reader that combines all, reading, writing, speaking, listening and researching, a new concept. Yes there is grammar but it is contextualized and level appropriate.
Interdisciplinary and content based, the units are as varied as our students with topics on ecology, literature, astronomy and astrology, science, entertainment (movies, soap operas, a song festival). I have done my best to speak to the different interests of our students, all the while learning about the Spanish speaking world. The topics allow for lively discussion and show respect for other cultures. The entire book can be previewed at miraflores.org, my website.
This is a completely self-standing book. It includes reading, writing, oral, Internet as well as grammar review and vocabulary enrichment. Each unit is organized thematically and every exercise revolves around the central topic.
Special emphasis is given to one area, the Southern Cone: Argentina, Chile, Uruguay and Paraguay. I have added some additional chapters on Spain and Mexico because there is great interest in both.
