Mapeando a Língua Portuguesa através das Artes is an exciting, comprehensive textbook for intermediate to advanced Portuguese courses. Mapeando features interviews, authentic texts, and works of art, which serve as springboards for students to express themselves in Portuguese through performance, debate, communicative exercises, and task solving. Each of the twelve units is structured around a particular form of art, such as photography or literature, and includes three communicative grammar lessons, three texts, and integrated audio and video activities.
• Provocative, authentic works of art create an abundance of opportunities for students to speak in the target language.
• Student reflections (Primeiros acordes) that open each unit motivate students to interact in more meaningful ways with the language and culture.
• Communicative and task-based exercises throughout the units guide students through a systematic review and extension of Portuguese grammar.
• Accompanying website with video, audio, and accompanying workbook are integrated into the textbook.
