Romance Languages and Literatures

Pre-Texts Poetry

In this activity, students appropriate and manipulate the words, grammar and themes of a “classic” work in order to develop their own styles as creative writers. By turning an iconic medium into a popular genre, students learn that classic writers have done the same thing, borrowing and stealing other people’s words.  

Portuguese Travel Presentation

Students present on a topic related to the Portuguese-speaking world or their personal travels, while the other students write down three questions or things they learned.
