Esta mujer dice en voz alta lo que todas pensamos. ¿Callarse cuando toca? No es lo suyo. ¿Ser educada? Ni en sueños. ¿Hacer del tapeo toda una filosofía...? ¡Eso por supuesto que sí! Fleur es divertida, brutalmente sincera con los demás y no se calla ninguna de sus verdades. Puede que la vida no la bendijera con la belleza de una diosa griega o el cuerpazo de una profesora de yoga, pero le dio un arma mucho mejor: su afilada lengua. Con su mal genio, su humor negro y una total ausencia de filtros, la imparable Fleur se atreve a cualquier cosa, ¡sobre todo a lo peor! Y si no te gusta: ¡ajo y agua! La crítica ha dicho... «Un cómic femenino y sin complejos... Oscila entre la sincera ingenuidad y la intensa mala fe mientras ilustra, a grandes rasgos, las neurosis y obsesiones de nuestra sociedad.» Midi Libre «Fleur es incisiva, irónica y está un poco loca, y por eso nos gusta tanto. A través de estas escenas cotidianas, sus bromas dan en el clavo sin necesidad de dar ningún rodeo.» Virtuellement Votre «Todas las mujeres pueden reconocerse en Fleur porque encarna todas las imperfecciones de la raza humana para burlarse de ellas. En el cómic se abordan temas tan amplios e interesantes como los complejos, la pareja, la sexualidad, el sexismo, la maternidad, la rivalidad entre mujeres, la ecología, la carga mental e incluso... ¡las tapas!» Le Journal des Femmes «El regalo perfecto para tu mejor amiga. Cualquiera puede reconocerse en las situaciones que atraviesa la protagonista. No decepciona.» Terrafemina «Con sus curvas y su melena roja, Fleur no pasa desapercibida... Lo rompe todo a base de humor y burlas. Uno no puede evitar adoptar su misma filosofía de vida.» Avantages «Nos vemos reflejadas en ella, envidiamos su descaro, aplaudimos su alucinante diseño y su sencillez.» Prima [less]

← Go back Onward → Los años de Allende Hueders Autor: Carlos Reyes, Rodrigo Elgueta $15.000 Cuando el 4 de septiembre de 1970 Salvador Allende obtuvo el 36,2 por ciento de los votos que lo llevaron a ser presidente de la República, empezaron los mil días más intensos de la historia de Chile. El país fue un ejemplo inédito de socialismo popular democrático, con planes revolucionarios de igualdad, y al mismo tiempo un temido enclave marxista que amenazaba los privilegios, los negocios privados y los grandes capitales. Esta novela gráfica enseña con rigor los hechos políticos, los factores y actores que determinaron el fin de la vía chilena, a través de la mirada de un periodista norteamericano que llega a reportear un proceso y se encuentra con conspiraciones, efervescencia cultural y agitadas noches con una mujer fascinante. Muestra, así, las esperanzas y temores de los protagonistas de entonces, quienes vieron con pasión y dolor cómo se articulaba y destruía un experimento social único en el siglo XX. [less]

"I put the development of new kinds of tests at the top of the list because of the importance of tests in shaping all that we do and think in the classroom. . . If we teach for communicative competence, we have to test for communicative competence." (Communicative Approach Expert, Sandra J. Savignon, 1976, p. 5).With this guide* and these French texts, proficiency testing can finally become a common practice in the classroom, which can have widespread effects on how we teach, namely, enabling more communicative language teaching. New approaches require new testing methods. This is the book teachers need (and long overdue in the language teaching field) with potential to be a game-changer.The proficiency tests are- Meaning-based- Comprehension-based- Bias for the students' best- Quick to administer and easy to scoreI have personally field-tested the stories and procedures and adopted them for my own action research. I used them as pre and post tests, the results of which helped me earn "Exemplary" ratings on my teacher evaluation. The tests also gave me diagnostic data when starting at a new school and served as final exams based on growth.The book reviews the constructs and terminology of communicative language teaching, proficiency, and testing. The Proficiency Guidelines from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) are explained, critiqued, and common misinterpretations reviewed. Improved testing methods are discussed, namely Savignon's 1972 study that started the communicative movement in testing and tests I designed in the same spirit.Finally, recommended are 8, practical tasks with practical evaluation criteria. Teachers with a story-based curriculum can test how they teach and everyone can use stories as the starting point for different communicative tasks. Given that this book can also function as a speed reading course, the benefits and research of speed reading are also included. The rest of the book consists of the thirty stories and thirty quizzes. The readings get progressively more challenging. The number of different words in a story, sentence length, and structural variety all slightly increase. This enables a teacher to test with stories at different levels in order to give everyone a chance at improving. In my classroom, I repeated the same task with 2 different stories: 1 from the first half, 1 from the latter half of the book. Go here to view samples (scroll down): acquisitionclassroom.weebly...

"I put the development of new kinds of tests at the top of the list because of the importance of tests in shaping all that we do and think in the classroom. . . If we teach for communicative competence, we have to test for communicative competence." (Communicative Approach Expert, Sandra J. Savignon, 1976, p. 5).With this guide* and these Spanish texts**, proficiency testing can finally become a common practice in the classroom, which can have widespread effects on how we teach, namely, enabling more communicative language teaching. New approaches require new testing methods. This is the book teachers need (and long overdue in the language teaching field) with potential to be a game-changer.The proficiency tests are- Meaning-based- Comprehension-based- Bias for the students' best- Quick to administer and easy to scoreI have personally field-tested the stories and procedures and adopted them for my own action research. I used them as pre and post tests, the results of which helped me earn "Exemplary" ratings on my teacher evaluation. The tests also gave me diagnostic data when starting at a new school and served as final exams based on growth.The book reviews the constructs and terminology of communicative language teaching, proficiency, and testing. The Proficiency Guidelines from the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages (ACTFL) are explained, critiqued, and common misinterpretations reviewed. Improved testing methods are discussed, namely Savignon's 1972 study that started the communicative movement in testing and tests I designed in the same spirit.Finally, recommended are 8 practical tasks with practical evaluation criteria. Teachers with a story-based curriculum can test how they teach and everyone can use stories as the starting point for different communicative tasks. Given that this book can also function as a speed reading course, the benefits and research of speed reading are also included. The rest of the book consists of thirty stories and thirty quizzes written within the highest frequency 300 words. The readings get progressively more challenging. The number of different words in a story, sentence length, and structural variety all slightly increase. This enables a teacher to test with stories at different levels in order to give everyone a chance at improving. In my classroom, I repeated the same task with 2 different stories: 1 from the first half, 1 from the latter half of the book.Go here to view samples (scroll down): acquisitionclassroom.weebly... The guide has the same content as is in Assessing Proficiency in the Classroom.** The texts are the same as are in Speed Readings for Spanish Learners. [less]
