I am really excited to use Fiesta Fatal by Mira Canion this fall in Spanish II. It will be their first novel in the past tense, and how I will start with it when I return from maternity leave in November. (To say I like planning ahead is an understatement 🙂 I purchased a set of novels and the Teacher’s Guide using our curriculum budget, but they can not be ordered until the new fiscal year in July. Of course that did not stop me from already searching to see how other teachers have used the novel and what kinds of supplemental activities they have come up with. I have already started planning with my large slideshow for the unit. As I find resources, I add them to the slideshow, so once I get to the chapter, I do not forget them. Once I have the teachers guide, I will add discussion questions and many other cultural expansions. As you can see most of the resources below came from the generous sharing of Katherine Matheson, Cynthia Hitz & Martina Bex.
