Novels per class

There seem to be many questions lately on the iFLT/NTPRS/CI Teaching Facebook page Image-1 (1)about what novels to teach for each level and what novels to purchase.  Here is what we teach at my high school in each level.  All of these novels can be purchased from TPRS Publishing.

Spanish 1:

  • Brandon Brown quiere un perro
  • Piratas
  • Curriculum from Cuéntame (Gabi series)

Spanish 2:

  • Tumba (part of my Día de los Muertos unit)
    • film: Book of Life
  • Nuevo Houdini
  • Esperanza (part of immigration unit)
    • films: Misma Luna, Una Mejor Vida, Which Way Home
  • Felipe Alou
    • possible films: 42, Pelotero

Spanish 3:

Spanish 4:

  • Noches Misteriosas en Granada
  • La Hija del Sastre (part of Spanish Civil War Unit)
    • films: Lengua de las Mariposas, Laberinto del fauno, Espinazo del Diablo
  • Todo lo que Brilla (my Todo lo que Brilla activities)
  • Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha
    • films: Voces Inocentes, Sin Nombre

Here are the novels that I use for Free Voluntary Reading as of now:

  • Brandon Brown vs Yucatán
  • Las Aventuras de Isabella
  • Isabela Captura un Congo
  • Berto y sus buenas ideas

  • Fiesta Fatal
