Other aids to comprehension and cultural understanding include: vocabulary-building exercises, a reading guide, writing activities, themes for debate, and group discussion topics. Additionally, a literary analysis section is designed to help bridge the gap between language and literature courses. Each story has also been embellished with a drawing created for each story. The artwork not only enlivens the text, but also serves to provoke the student's imagination. Questions linked to the drawing are offered as possible topics of class discussion. [read more]
