It’s been a rough road this summer for Cajas de cartón: a reader’s guide to the memoir by Francisco Jiménez. I think I began the guide in April or May, but then June was slammed with workshops and travel. July I lost my father and traveled some more. August I finished traveling and went back to work on the guide. And then September. I finally finished the guide this month but the editing process took longer than anticipated. But it’s all over now!
Hear that? It’s a harmonious rendition of the Hallelujah chorus.
Whew! What a labor it has been!
The ebook guide for Cajas de cartón will be released via the blog THIS FRIDAY, October 3. For one week, the purchase price to download the file will be 25% off, $29.95. Next Friday it will go to its regular price of $39.95. And that’s not per student – the cost includes a license for you to copy the file for all your students for as long as you teach.
Just a foretaste- my favorite section is a new feature, new from the Ciudad guide, I mean, called “Investigación,” in which your students research how something that happens in the chapter connects to the way immigrants live in your area. For example, students may investigate how new immigrants enroll their children in school or find medical care, or they may explore the actual process an immigrant goes through in order to obtain a green card.

Francisco will see you Friday!
