In this self-paced intensive Spanish Reading Comprehension course, students will read through a classic novel in Spanish literature. This course focuses on the classic novel of Juan Ramón Jiménez – Platero y yo. It is a prose poem about the writer and his donkey. Through this work of literature the author reflects on the simple joys of life, cherished memories, and friendship. This specific version has been written for kids. I chose it because it is easier to understand and students are still introduced to a wide range of vocabulary and poetics. Students will build confidence by reading Spanish literature and will comprehend the story and learn new vocabulary by watching the videos provided, followed by quizzes. This class will prepare the student to familiarize himself or herself with Spanish literature.
