Every time I have to teach America Literature, I think of my students and their abilities and rethink alternative ways to make this amazing subject attractive and magic. For starters, it is not easy to get involved in history and culture not seen before. But once most of my students feel open to grasp and take command of the knowledge, it becomes an open environment of questions; sometimes challenged by diffcult readings, quick tests but best of all the,  classes  become an exercise in respect for cultures, a taste of a continent I wish I could once visit and best of all, the students achieve a competency in  command of the language and the historical and cultural contexts.
