The second quarter novel for Spanish III this year is the novel Problemas en Paraíso by Carol Gaab. This is my first time using this novel as a whole class novel, but I have used it as a part of literature circles. I previously blogged about planning for the novel. While planning, even though I have the official teacher’s guide, it is one of the old ones, that is very basic without all of the great cultural expansions and ideas of the new guides. Since I have taught quite a few novels now, I have my “go to” activities that can be used with any novel. (I currently have 72 posts with the label novel if you need ideas).
