My TPRS Novel

On this page I provide information about the TPRS novel that I published and links to the free resources I use to teach the novel.

  • super Read about & purchase Superburguesas
  • An overview of how I teach this novel
  • Word clouds that preview the vocabulary of each chapter.

  • Comprehension questions for each chapter.

  • Crossword puzzle games to use as a post-reading activity for chapters 1-10.

  • A power point to discuss the concrete poem that is featured in “Chapter 0” of the book.

  • Cultural connection: A website dedicated to Mexican masks where you can find many photos and videos showing how these masks are used in local celebrations. Always preview before showing videos; these are actual footage of local celebrations.

  • Cultural connection: Art critic Robert Hughes made a documentary about his obsession with Goya called Goya: Crazy Like A Genius. While the film is not entirely suitable for class, the documentary is a fantastic entry for teachers who want to brush up on Goya before choosing a piece of art to discuss.
