Summary

This successful reader for second-year Spanish focuses on language acquisition, reading comprehension, and communicative competence. Designed to introduce literature without demanding complicated literary analysis, it contains 14 unadapted short stories by contemporary writers from different parts of the Spanish-speaking world. To facilitate reading comprehension, the text includes marginal glosses, a complete Spanish-English vocabulary, and an introduction to reading strategies and literary terms.

  • New! Expanded pre-reading activities include Preparación para leer, which activates students' background knowledge of key issues, and Y más preparación, which presents strategies and activities to improve reading comprehension.
  • New! Five readings and most of the story-opening photos and art have been replaced.
  • Each story is accompanied by a vocabulary list organized by parts of speech; a brief passage presenting selected vocabulary in context; a thematically related photo or artwork by an artist from Spain, Latin America, or the United States; and brief background notes in English on the authors and their stories.
  • Actividades de prelectura activate students' background knowledge, offer strategies to improve reading comprehension, and reinforce active vocabulary.
  • Actividades de postlectura encourage students to use Spanish creatively through comprehension checks, discussion topics, and writing assignments.
