  • This chapter is called “Una foto especial.” Just for fun, you may wish to have your students bring in a “foto especial” of themselves and take turns telling something about their fotos in Spanish.
  • Idea: set up a “selfie station” for students to take their own special photos! Put up colorful paper or fabric, place a basket of fun props and costumes, and let students have fun for a few minutes. If you have social media for your classroom, encourage them to share! (Be aware of your school’s social media and photo sharing policies!)
  • Through Googlebooks you can access the book “Teens in Mexico” by Brian Baumgart. It is full of images and interesting information that you may wish to share with your students! Here is a shortened address that will take you to the book: http://tinyurl.com/2vwrswm
