PREFACIO

Mujeres de hoy: textos, voces a imagines is a content-based collection of works by Spanish, Spanish American, and Latina women designed for upper-level courses. Each chapter includes two literary selections that show different sides of the topic under exploration. Other materials complementing these readings are: newspaper articles, testimonies, art, interviews, films, songs, and Web activities. By exposing students to all sorts of texts (from literature to different manifestations of popular culture) and media, they will have the opportunity to examine the diversity and complexity of the Hispanic world and the richness of its culture.

The topics selected deal either with contemporary issues that challenge today's society—immigration, minority groups, ecology—or human experience such as procreation or the construction of a gendered identity. The approach to every issue, as well as the activities in every chapter, has been designed to make sure that they are completely inclusive of male and female experience. Every topic is presented through a non-biased approach; therefore, male students will not feel alienated in the classroom. All students will definitely benefit from each other's diverse or similar perspectives. Furthermore, through the readings and exploration of the topics, they will soon learn how gender construction, race, religion, social status, and many other factors affect our understanding of the world.

The Spanish-speaking world has been blessed with excellent women authors and artists who not only have created striking works of art, but also have deepened the exploration and understanding of the Hispanic identity andculture. Nowadays, more colleges and universities are responding effectively to the demands of students (male and female) to learn about the silenced voices in society. Women's presence and participation in the Hispanic world have changed dramatically and have become more visible over the past decades. However, most literature surveys only include a small female representation, and some content-based textbooks have a chapter to account for them, as if women were an appendix, not an intrinsic part of the culture under study. Women account for 52% of the Hispanic population around the world. Excluding them from the study of the Hispanic culture reinforces stereotypes and perpetuates their invisibility. TEXT FEATURES Introduccion al tema

The objective of this section is to encourage students to express their concerns, prejudices, preconceptions, or misconceptions about the topic of the chapter. It includes a brief text with general information about the topic of the chapter and questions to encourage brainstorming of ideas. Primera lectura

Informacion biogrdfica. Brief biographical information about the author, her major works, and literary significance are presented in this section.

Actividades de prelectura. Pre-reading activities help students focus on the themes that they will later encounter in the reading.

Mientras leemos. While-reading activities ensure that students learn new vocabulary and grasp the main ideas of the reading. Lectura

Analisis del contenido. This section is designed to make sure students have understood not only the plot, but also the subtle information that confirms the final meaning of the reading. This section prepares students to deal with more advanced analysis.

Situaciones. By thinking about a specific problem in the reading and creating a role-play, students immerse themselves in the character's conflict, which provides insight to motives and behaviors otherwise meaningless or obscure to them.

Analisis literario. The written and communicative activities included in this section are designed to promote an in-depth analysis of the reading. Literary strategies, structure, theme, and characters are under scrutiny in order to go beyond a superficial reading toward a more profound understanding of the meaning of the text. El mundo en que vivimos

This section introduces other types of narratives. The first reading is an essay that explores the topic at hand in depth and offers students the necessary vocabulary to express their opinion on the issues. The second text is a testimony. The purpose of this section is to advance the exploration of the topic by means of contrasting different voices and points of view. All texts are integrated with one another. Segunda Lectura

The second reading is used as a counterpoint to the first reading. It offers a different view and/or approach to the topic of the chapter and follows the same internal structure as the first reading. Establece vinculos

www.prenhall.com/mujeresdehoy: There are links with interesting information to help students complete the Web-based activities located in different sections of every chapter.
