Análisis estructural y lingüístico-literario de Un cuentecillo triste de Gabriel García Márquez

Análisis estructural y lingüístico-literario de Un cuentecillo triste de Gabriel García Márquez

El tamaño del papel es legal. Necesita13 páginas . Análisis estructural y lingüístico-literario de Un cuentecillo triste de Gabriel García Márquez es un cuento corto. Es uno de mis cuentos verdaderamente favoritos. En unas pocas páginas , el escritor colombiano, Grabriel García Márquez, logra cristalizar de forma , aparentemente, humorística, dos problemas serios de la humanidad: el aburrimiento y la soledad. Punto final, visite mi tienda: DoctorLuzAlgarin. Revise mis trabajos y, por favor, cómprelos. Son excelentes instrumentos de apoyo para enseñar y para que el estudiante aprenda. Gracias, Luz.

La Muñeca Menor: Short Story and Reading Guide Questions (Rosario Ferre)

La Muñeca Menor: Short Story and Reading Guide Questions (Rosario Ferre)

This is a kind of spooky little short story from Puerto Rico about a girl who has a crayfish stuck in her leg. (Magical Realism) It has a surprise ending and lots to talk about in how the characters treat each other. I taught this story in my Heritage Language Speakers class this year but it would also work well for a level IV or V class with older students who are willing to work through the vocabulary. My students enjoyed the story and creepy surprise ending.

Reading Guide: El Pachuco y Otros Extremos - Octavio Paz

Reading Guide: El Pachuco y Otros Extremos - Octavio Paz

Octavio Paz writes about El Pachuco, who is the Mexican who is not American nor Mexican. Octavio's essay opens the door for some great discussions with students of Hispanic origin about Pachuchos, the Zoot Suit riots, discrimination against Hispanic Americans on the West coast and if the Pachuco still exists today. (Great discussion topic for students about how Cholos are similar/different than Pachucos.) This reading guide contains some questions to help students direct their focus and some key vocabulary that could give them trouble. Essay is appropriate for a Heritage Learner Class or an AP level V class where students have good comprehension skills and arent afraid to navigate some new vocabulary. Octavio Paz El Pachuco y Otros Extremos Lecture is available on line for free through a variety of websites.
