Abstract

The story of don Quixote is perfect to promote authentic communication and critical thinking in the upper level Spanish classroom. A companion Teacher Support is available. The language of the Siglo de Oro can be an insurmountable barrier for many readers. This textbook provides historical information, narrative techniques, lists of characters, themes and key words before they begin to read each chapter. While reading, vocabulary glossed in comprehensible Spanish appears in the margin opposite challenging words. Cultural references and proverbs from the work facilitate a deeper understanding. Each chapter contains checks for understanding and ends with activities to build vocabulary. It includes chapters 1-8, 10, 17 and 74 for AP classrooms.
