This blog has been designed to provide information about the activities held at the social studies bilingual sections in CPI Tino Grandío (Guntín,Spain). The English language and Social Studies teachers have elaborated most of the resources you can see but our "auxiliares de conversa" also have their own page and posts. Therefore everyone is invited to have a look .

Reading Club - The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn

Last Thursday the members of the CPI Tino Grandío Reading Club held another session to talk about the last book we have read: The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn, by Mark Twain. This time the meeting was for teachers and it took place in a cafeteria in Lugo. We talked about several aspects of the book:
  • The historical period of the story.
  • Mark Twain's ideas about life, literature, Don Quixote, and his childhood near river Mississippi.
  • The differences between the characters: Huck, Tom Sawyer, Jim and Huck's father.
  • Slavery in America and the changing ideas about it at the period.
  • The river and its importance in the story.
  • Similarities and differences with Don Quixote.
We must say that we all loved the story and that we are willing to read something, probably in French for the next session of our Club.
