Teaching Alvarez: “Quiero Mis Quinces”!

posted: 9.22.10 by Barclay Barrios

MTV’s network Tr3s, celebrating Latino culture, has a show about quinces entitled “Quiero Mis Quinces.”

If you’re teaching Julia Alvarez, this might be an interesting site to have students explore, especially placed against MTV’s similar popular show “My Super Sweet 16.”

Students can examine the similarities and differences in the sites’ design and content while considering the role of Hispanic culture in the larger American pop culture.
