Perhaps no other story is as compelling, as universal, or conveys as much about a culture as does a legend. In this widely used reader, the second edition of Leyendas del mundo hispano offers 12 Hispanic legends from Argentina, Bolivia, Colombia¿ Cuba, El Salvador, Mexico, New Mexico (U.S.), Paraguay, Peru, Spain, and Uruguay. Abundant pre- and post-reading activities accompany each story and help students improve their reading, writing, and speaking skills. Highlights to the new edition
- A preliminary chapter presents popular North American legends in order to provide a framework for the Hispanic legends and create a link to something they already know.
- 4 new legends: an Inca creation myth, an Arab-Spanish legend, a Cuban legend/myth, and a Sephardic legend.
- Each chapter has:
- A listening activity that corresponds to the audio CD
- Internet activities that refer students to the Leyendas web site
- An activity involving a map or other visual
- The web-based activities encourage students to look beyond the stories to the context in which they were created.
- A more robust Spanish-English glossary
Since legends are an inherently aural medium, an audio CD has been created that contains a spoken version of each legend. Students can practice their listening comprehension, feel the rhythm of the language, and experience the intonation and inflection of the words. The Audio CD invites students to journey back in time and experience the legends just as they were initially experiencedin the telling for aural preservation from one generation to another. With each telling, the legends take on the particularcharacteristics of the time and the teller. One spoken version is offered for each legend.
