Practical teacher's guide for the Spanish engaging biography of baseball player Felipe Alou.
For a start, the 135 pages of this manual contain for each chapter a vocabulary list and many questions you can use to prepare for reading, during reading or after reading the chapter. You can use them to start a conversation (and keep it going) or for assessment. Questions vary between comprehension questions, discussion questions and questions for finding out more information.
The teacher's guide contains various slide show presentations, about transport in the 60's, baseball, segregation and discrimination and many cultural aspects of the 60's and the Dominican Republic. There are also many readings about places and events from the story. Of course, the usual assessments, Reader's Theatre instructions, games and listening tasks also form part of this manual.
