What is a comprehensible novel?

A CI novel is a piece of carefully crafted language learning literature. CI novels are an excellent addition to any curriculum, as they are accessible for students language. These novels leverage cognates, and high frequency structures to aid students in comprehension. I am an author of several comprehensible novels, and most of the materials to using them in class can be found on TPT. See links below for other books your students might be interested in reading.

"El Escape: Casi me mata el celular" Novel Guide is comprised of 24 activities to help facilitate reading and engagement with the Spanish 3+ Reader

What is "El escape" about? Well, you're about to find out!

Synopsis of the novel

Can an obsession with technology turn deadly? Well, these techy teens are about to find out. Federico and his friends have an insatiable desire to “capture” and “record” every memorable moment. However, not all memories are created equal, and these boys are about to discover this harsh reality. Against the advice of a town elder, these thrill-seeking “know-it-all” teenagers set out to film their usual pranks and upload them to Youtube...and they won’t get the last laugh. They stumble upon an incident that has the #danger, written all over it. Anxious to add to their video repertoire, they press record. Now they’ve become the ”victims” of a new crime thriller. There is no turning back. Federico and his friends must outsmart the bad guys, before or get “deleted” forever.

"El Escape" will take readers on a thrilling ride and compel them to contemplate the consequences on the other side of the "Record" button. *There is one scene of violence, which is associated the event witnessed by the characters.
