ISBN10: 0395909287

Summary: Designed for second- and third-year Spanish conversation courses, Conversaciones creadoras offers a dynamic, learner-centered approach to developing oral communication skills and cultural competence. A preliminary chapter presents the objectives, approach, and structure of the text, as well as useful learning strategies and "ice-breaking" activities. The following 12 chapters contain a strong pedagogical apparatus that requires students to use Spanish
to resolve meaningful conflicts. The Second Edition has added new cross-cultural comparison questions, revised selected Práctica del Vocabulario básico activities, and replaced the full-page maps of the Spanish-speaking world. All Notas culturales sections and some Vocabulario útil sections have also been revised and expanded.
  • Notas culturales provide students with background information on the chapter topics. Hispanoamérica and España sections emphasize the cultural diversity of the Spanish-speaking world.Vocabulario básico presents 25 key words and expressions related to each chapter theme. Práctica del vocabulario básico activities reinforce vocabulary through word analogies, synonym and antonym practice, word definitions, and paragraph or dialogue completions.
  • Conversaciones creadoras mini-dramas, written by renowned Spanish novelist Carmen Martín Gaite, are engaging, unfinished vignettes for which students devise their own endings.
  • Comprensión sections test students' factual understanding of the mini-dramas through ¿Qué pasó? exercises and build inferential skills through ¿QuÚé conclusiones saca Ud.?
  • Escenas provide role-play activities centered on information gap situations, while Más actividades creadoras offer other creative tasks, including personalized questions, projects for pair and group work, illustration- and realia-based exercises, and topics for class discussion and writing assignments.
  • Vocabulario útil sections provide thematically-organized lists of optional words and expressions for use with the Conversaciones creadoras, Escenas, and Más actividades creadoras. Vocabulario individual features enable students to create personal lexicons.
