About the Author:

Nancy Levy-Konesky received her Ph.D. from Boston College where she studied with the Graduate School of Education as well as the Department of Romance Languages and Literatures. She was the 1997 recipient of the John Schmidt award for her research on instructional video design, and she has extensive experience writing, producing, and directing foreign language and culture video programs on both the high school and college level, as well as for broadcast television. Professor Levy-Konesky has taught Spanish and Hispanic culture and literature at the university level for more than 20 years, and also has experience teaching and writing curriculum and materials for high school students. She developed and teaches foreign language methodology courses on the graduate level, and continues to lead teacher-training workshops. She currently teaches Foreign Language Methods with the Teacher Preparation Program at Yale University, and also teach Spanish and Hispanic culture and literature with the Romance Language Department at Tufts University. Her research and experience in foreign language methodology and video production combine to make Professor Levy-Konesky an authority on its use in first- and second- year Spanish language classrooms.

Karen Daggett studied linguistics in the Graduate School of the Autonomous University of Guadalajara, Mexico, as well as Hispanic literature at Boston College. She attended a two-year seminar in Foreign Language Methodology at Harvard University, where she received the Highest Achievement in Teaching Award. Karen has taught Spanish language and Hispanic culture and literature at Boston College for more than twenty years, and has also been involved in middle school and high school foreign language instruction. In addition to Karen's varied classroom experience, she has coordinated and taught elementary, intermediate and third year Spanish and has lead teacher-training workshops around the country. Karen also shares her expertise at many state and national conferences, most recently at the A.C.T.F.L. and A.A.T.S.P. National Conferences. Her most recent area of research and study is in the field of developing foreign language writing and reading skills.

Review:

"The excellent grammar presentations are one of the reasons I have liked using As? es in the past."

"I appreciate that there are often listening activities for specific forms/functions. This is one of the ways in which As? es achieves integration of language skills."

"The selected vocabulary is common usage and truly functional. Lists do not overwhelm students with an impossible number of words. Activities provide ample opportunities for practice and learning without memorizing lists. Learning vocabulary is reinforced by different activities, and instructors are given many ideas in the annotations of how to present vocabulary to maximize learning."

"The cultural component is more extensive and complete than in most books."

"[The Gaceta] is a strong feature of the package. It is surprising and refreshing that first-year students will be exposed to something like La vida es sue?o in the Enfoque literario."
