Desde el Caribe para el mundo: lengua y comunicación

CC BY-NC (Attribution NonCommercial)  43 H5P Activities    Spanish (Puerto Rico)

Author(s): Carmen M. Rivera Villegas, Rocío Luque Colautti

Subject(s): Language teaching and learning

Last updated: 03/05/2024

Este libro es como un salón de clases convertido en un taller para practicar la lectura, la escritura, la escucha y el habla usando como modelo cartas, artículos y poemas que Julia de Burgos escribió desde Puerto Rico, Cuba y la ciudad de Nueva York entre finales de los 1930 y principios de los 1950. Las actividades de producción oral y escrita buscan la generación del discurso propio a través de la planificación, la investigación, el análisis y la toma de posiciones críticas. Por otra parte, las actividades que se dedican a la comprensión oral y escrita proponen el manejo contextual del vocabulario, el ejercicio de inferir a partir de determinados aspectos retóricos y la exploración de la subjetividad.

Parte del Programa de Recursos Educativos Abiertos en Estudios del Caribe de la Biblioteca Digital del Caribe. Con el apoyo de la Biblioteca Digital del Caribe y la Fundación Andrew W. Mellon.

The purpose of this book with authored chapters is to build capacity for cyberbullying research and prevention in India. In the book, we synthesize global scientific knowledge on cyberbullying risk and prevention and digital safety more broadly, with a specific focus on the extent to which that research has been applied to India. We comment on what is generalizable and identify areas of needed research. We enrich this knowledge with our insights gained from focus groups with stakeholders in health, education, and policy in India.

John D. MacDonald was a prolific writer, authoring 78 books that have sold more than 70 million copies. Many of his novels published in the 1950’s were set in Florida, as were several of his 450 short stories and the well-known Travis McGee series. Dear Dordo: The World War II Letters of Dorothy and John D. MacDonald presents a collection of 175 letters that were exchanged between John and his wife Dorothy (known as “Dordo”) between May 1943 and June 1945. These letters provide a fascinating and honest account of life during World War II from a husband in the U.S. Army and a wife on the home front.

Through John and Dorothy’s correspondence, readers will learn about John’s experiences in the U.S. Army (based first in India, and then, as a commander of an OSS unit, in Ceylon) and Dorothy’s experiences as a supportive spouse back home in Utica, New York.  The letters animate how John and Dorothy dealt with the personal concerns and themes of their lives, separately and as a married couple, and demonstrate the difficulties of wartime separation of husbands and wives. The letters also tell the story of a wife’s efforts on behalf of her husband abroad that launched a heralded literary career that established a new twist on the hard-boiled detective novel genre of American writing.

The letters compiled in Dear Dordo are framed by a preface, an introduction, editorial notes, and a glossary. These materials provide unique and essential context to the content of the letters. Fans and scholars alike will find much to consider and analyze in this collection.
