I teach students in grades 9-12 Spanish. I am always trying to find engaging ways to integrate reading into my class at a level that is appropriate for my students. The readers I am requesting are leveled to be appropriate for first and second year Spanish students, with content that is designed to capture and keep the attention of its teenage readers. In this book the students become secret agents during the Spanish Civil War using Picasso’s masterpiece Guernica to find The Sword of Destiny which could alter the course of the war. I have very large classes of 30+ students, so purchasing a set of books for everyone to have their own is cost prohibitive with my small classroom budget. I also teach in 2 buildings within my district, though I am not in each building every day, I teach through a telepresence system. I essentially need 2 classroom sets of the books so each student in both buildings can have a copy of the book.
