Conversaciones escritas offers a fresh approach to writing for both second language learners and heritage speakers. An engaging text, organized into thematic chapters dealing with current events, this book will simultaneously promote reading skills while showing examples of good writing. Drawing from best practices in native English language arts composition, second language writing, and heritage speaker pedagogy, the text offers a complete program that develops Spanish language proficiency, general academic writing, and knowledge of contemporary social issues. Student assessment questions, based on the readings, will provoke further thought while writing activities, based on the essays, will help the reader to write in Spanish as they take a stand on an issue.
