Two Pedagogical Projects: Extensive Reading and Creative Writing in the Spanish as a Foreign Language


By reporting on two teaching experiences in the context of the teaching of Spanish as a foreign language, this study reviews the role of extensive reading and ways to implement it in the foreign language classroom. One of the projects -the practice of extensive reading through free reading time in the classroom- serves as the basis for the second, ´Handcrafted books', in which the student begins as a reader and then becomes an author. The present work is descriptive in nature and it introduces the theoretical framework that supports each project, guidelines for its implementation, and participant reactions.
