    Are there any Spanish Teachers that have ideas on how to use Spanish Literature to teach Grammar? I have a book in Spanish that I would like to use as an ongoing activity that the students hone their skills with throughout the year, but I'm not sure the best way to start, so I'm looking for previous experience and inspirational ideas.

    Thanks,
    David Graef

    Hola! Welcome to the forums. I’m not a teacher of foreign language, but I love your idea. I remember reading Le Petit Prince in high school French and L’etranger in college. I think approach grammar within the context of the story..if it’s a novel, most likely written in past tense? Dialog most likely present tense...
    You could have students write sentences/paragraphs based on ones in the book, comprehension questions, writing prompts based on theme, character....

    Depending on the book, you could direct students' attention to differences between the authorial voice(s) and the voices of the characters: at least some of those differences are likely to involve grammar. You could also look up lesson plans for teaching grammar through English literature or Spanish literature: chances are someone's done something that might give you some good ideas.
