Hacia la literatura How did you read your first book? Was it by opening a dictionary and working through the text word by word? The answer is obviously no, yet this is a scenario that all too often takes place in foreign language classes. Hacia la literatura is a holistic approach that immerses students in the Hispanic experience. The text is written entirely in Spanish, and it encourages students to consider reading as an integrated, collaborative, and communicative act— one that will unlock the door to the multiple cultures of Spanish-speaking peoples. Hacia la literatura features:

  • 26 authentic readings— a rich collection of prose, poetry, popular songs, journalism, comics, movie reviews, magazine articles, and more.
  • Authors drawn from a wide variety of Spanish-speaking cultures and differing points of view.
  • An entire unit organized around the theme of Hispanic writers in the US creating a unique awareness of Hispanic writing in the US and its contemporary issues.
  • Complete pre-reading, reading, and post reading activities that involve all language skills.
  • Enlaces opcionales at the end of the chapter that encourage students to connect concepts and ideas. Referencing internet, film, television, etc., the enlaces may be useful for discussion, composition, test items, and more.
