Aprendizaje: Tecnicas de Composicion

This thematically organized composition text uses a process-writing approach that encourages critical thinking as well as collaborative learning. Through guided practice, students learn to be more effective writers, from sentence and paragraph construction to considerations of purpose--including personal, professional, and academic writing--anticipation of reader response, and the development of an individual writing style. An engaging, thematic focus stimulates the writing process. Realia, authentic readings from Spanish and Spanish American press sources, and thought-provoking topics--including film, the Spanish language, stereotypes, cultural diversity, and immigration--promote class discussion and serve as starting points for composition development.
