In the Fall of 2012 I gave three guest presentations for the course SPAN 323/WGSS 403″Women Writers of Spain” taught by Professor Noël Valis.1
I gave a presentation on a critical article related to the Spanish novel Nada by Carmen Laforet. I was also granted the opportunity to introduce to the class two literary texts that I study in my dissertation (Carmen Martín Gaite’s El cuarto de atrás and Adelaida García Morales’ El Sur). In my presentation of the texts I promoted students’ participation in the discussion and moderated their group and pair work.
The materials I use for these classes were: a PowerPoint for Martín Gaite’s novel El cuarto de atrás, a worksheet on El cuarto de atrás for group work, a worksheet on El sur, and a worksheet for class discussion and criticism of Barry Jordan’s article “Looks that Kill: Power, Gender and Vision in Laforet’s Nada.”
1. I would like to thank ProfessorNoël Valis for granting me this opportunity.
