Teacher's Guide: Cuando era puertorriqueña
Guides to enhance a group's reading and discussion of a book. They include a description of each book, questions, discussion topics, and author biographies. The Vintage Books' Teacher's Guide translated by Graciela Ramsay is a wonderful resource to accompany Esmeralda Santiago's Cuando era puertorrique?a. The guide is written for Spanish language students following the Spanish
translation of When I was Puerto Rican, a rich history of a girl's immigrant experience living in Puerto Rico and Brooklyn. The guide contents include teacher notes, pre-reading, reading comprehension, oral practice, and expansion activities. Cuando era puertorrique?a is ideal for studying the Puerto Rican culture, especially in Spanish for Heritage learner courses.
