After a couple of years of planning and writing I´m very happy to announce that I have published my first book of poems for the CI Spanish classroom.
Corazón sin borrador, is a collection of poems for various proficiency Spanish language levels that talk about school life and especially about love and friendship in teenagers´ world.
Each poem is accompanied with extension activities that will allow your students to express themselves in creative and honest ways.
Corazón sin borrador is the first book in a trilogy of poetry books that I hope will make this genre accessible to our students through simple, authentic and heartfelt language.
This book is dedicated to all those students we have and have had in our classrooms. Corazón sin borrador honors their feelings and the way they see life at this stage in their lives.
Working with poetry in the WL classroom allows teachers to have a daily focus that is meaningful and compelling to our students. This without mentioning all the benefits that come from reading and understanding images, symbols and abstract language.
It is my hope that you and your students really like all the poems and activities.
