Crônicas Brasileiras is divided into 42 different chapters, each with its own theme. The first chapter, for example, gives readers a short essay seemingly about a man's interaction with the postman about a letter delivered to the wrong address. The vocabulary is understandable, but footnotes at the bottom of the page explain (in English) some phrases that are not understood as easily.
I bought this book as an intermediate learner of Portuguese who needed a bit more guidance in order to improve.
After the reading there are a couple pages with practice exercises that are perfect for discussing with a tutor. The exercises for the first reading start off very simply, asking about the main idea of the passage. From there, it becomes more difficult, turning into a discussion about how communication has changed in your country. There are also roughly 5 ideas for a short essay or oral presentations, as well as 2 more activities that include doing research in Portuguese and discussing your findings with your classmates or tutor.
All in all, I think this is a great book to use in a classroom setting, but in regards to my own study habits, I would have some trouble using this book for self study, due to the nature of the discussion questions and suggested homework.
