Don Quijote de la Mancha, Activities and exercises is based on the original novel by one of the most magnificent writers of the Spanish literature, Miguel de Cervantes Saavedra.
Mrs. Padmore-Rogers and Mr. Valecillos made up a series of exercises based on seven chapters of the book. Each chapter starts with a vocabulary list for the students to look up the meaning of those words and create their own sentences and paragraphs. Then a short story initiates the adventures of Alonso Quixano, an hidalgo who reads so many chivalric novels that he decides to set out to revive chivalry, under the name Don Quixote. After the reading, there are exercises to check reading comprehension and let students work on their own to master comprehension of the chapter. Don Quixote is met by the world as it is, initiating such themes as intertextuality, realism, metatheatre, and literary representation.
Don Quixote is considered the most influential work of literature from the Spanish Golden Age and the entire Spanish literary canon.
