I put a lot of love into this lesson. It contains a page of teacher instructions including standards and rationale, pre-reading questions, vocabulary, vocabulary practice, a Spanish reading (Spanish II or III level), reading comprehension questions, open-ended questions, and an extension activity involving a cultural comparison. There is also an answer key. If I do say so myself, I think it's a great lesson.
It's a bargain at $2. When you think about it, preparing all of that (pre-reading, vocabulary, comprehension questions, writing the article, etc. . . .) it would take you about 2 or 3 hours. If you paid yourself minimum wage, that would be more than $21 worth of your time - and we all know your time is worth a lot more than minimum wage. Besides, $2 is half of what you would pay for a blended mocha with whip at your local coffee store. And, unlike that fancy coffee, you will have this lesson for years to come, to use again and again.
Here is a link to an abbreviated sample of the lesson, if you would like to have a look for yourself before investing your two dollars.
And that is about all the self promotion that I am comfortable with at this time. I did not start this blog to make money; I just want to interact with my colleagues in other places around the nation and the world. But I thought I would make you aware of this product in case you are interested. And if you choose to support me with your purchase, please know that I am very grateful.
