Paula Twomey, Spanish instructor in the Department of Languages and Literatures, has published °Improvisaciones!: 101 Skits With a Point of View en espaŮol with Teacherís Discovery. This resource book fosters speaking skills in which each participant in a given situation presents a different point of view. This technique forces them to respond as that person. °Improvisaciones! holds students responsible for higher learning skills in addition to developing new vocabulary and grammatical structures. Each improvisation has a Reflection (writing component) that invites students to make a personal connection to the activity. Other titles by Twomey include Un-Classic Fairy Tales in Spanish with a Twist, Aesopís Fables in Spanish With a Twist, Hablemos: 25 Dialogues in Spanish, Escribamos, Reflexiones and forthcoming in 2016, Greek Myths in Spanish With a Twist.
