It’s back to school time and also feeling like time for me to ease back into doing what I love, while I enjoy the memories of my dad who was the conduit of love for Spanish in my life.
The events of this summer have delayed several things, including new Black Box Podcast episodes and changes to the podcast, and the release of the ebook guide to Cajas de cartón. I’d intended to put the ebook guide to Ciudad de las bestias on sale at 20% off to celebrate the release of Cajas, but with that book delayed I didn’t want to delay the Ciudad sale as well, until you’re all back in school and “guide-less”! And so, until September 1, you can buy the ebook guide to Isabel Allende’s novel to Ciudad de las bestias at 20% off, only $39.95.
Haven’t checked out the guide yet? You can read all about it and buy via Paypal here, including a sample and information on how to use a purchase order to buy it. Briefly, I recommend Allende’s novel and this guide for Intermediate Mid to pre-Advanced students, AP, IB, and heritage classes. I taught it for six years as part of AP Spanish. With your purchase you receive a license to copy the guide for all of your students for as long as you are teaching (not transferable after use).
Planned to use the Cajas de cartón guide this year and frustrated by the delays? If you’d like to start using the guide with your students, please contact me and ask for the first three chapters absolutely free. There’s no introduction or dictionary yet, and illustrations are limited also, but you’ll have the beginning to get you all started as I work to get the book released by September 1. I am recommending this novel for Intermediate Low to pre-Advanced students.
