This guide constitutes an incredible support system for teachers of Hispanic Linguistics. Even the most experienced teachers will appreciate the carefully selected examples and creative activities to reinvigorate their lessons. The activities are replete with references to current research, which will stimulate critical thinking and can be used as the basis for written assignments. Students will appreciate the videos that illustrate language use in context (e.g., misunderstandings, humor, code-switching) and the audio clips that allow them to analyze authentic language samples. The content is reflective of a broad vision of Hispanic Linguistics and the various chapters are connected in interesting and relevant ways. If you strive to teach the subject matter in a way that promotes hands-on linguistic analysis, this guide is an essential resource.

In addition, the book comprises a wide variety of supplementary information for instructors, including expansion activities that can be used in class; proposals for mini research projects to encourage information exchange via oral presentations, debates, written reports or group work; suggestions for more in-depth readings on primary topics; and, a detailed bilingual glossary that both instructors and students will find helpful. Undoubtedly, the materials and guidance provided to instructors in this text will enhance the teaching of introductory courses on Hispanic linguistics. Carol A. Klee, University of Minnesota, US La Guia didactica y materiales de apoyo constituyen una aportacion esencial y novedosa para la ensenanza de linguistica hispanica contemporanea. Las secciones de cada capitulo facilitan y orientan la presentacion de los materiales por parte del profesor, y refuerzan el aprendizaje de los contenidos conceptuales del texto mediante actividades originales y dinamicas con distintos niveles de complejidad. En su conjunto, la guia y los materiales llenan un gran vacio en el area de la ensenanza de la linguistica hispanica. Jose Camacho, Rutgers University, US Offering an impressive range of ancillary materials, discussion questions, classroom activities, essay topics and ideas for further research, this extensive guide is a pedagogical treasure for introductory Hispanic linguistics courses. By delineating clear objectives for learning, the authors skillfully integrate aspects of phonology, morphology, syntax and pragmatics in lessons that challenge students to reflect upon the form and function of language from both structural and social perspectives. They pose sophisticated theoretical and philosophical questions about the nature of language with ease and candor, and effectively incorporate views from the Academy, mass media, the sciences and popular culture. Students and instructors alike will find themselves engaged with societal debates around language use in the Spanish-speaking world as they confront the intricacies of language acquisition, variation, change, and speaker identity in these pages.
