This product contains the biographies of five impactful women from the Spanish speaking world. The biographies are written in easy to read Spanish; largely in the past tense. Each of the biographies talks about how these women impacted the rights of others (women, indigenous people, fellow citizens). First year Spanish students will be able to understand these readings with ease by the spring semester, if not before.
Each biography is written on a one-page worksheet with a very brief comprehension activity at the bottom. The biographies are also provided in slideshow format (both PDF and PPT) to make it easy to read and discuss them together.
The women featured are
- Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz
- Rigoberta Menchú
- Michelle Bachelet
- Eva Perón
- The Mirabal sisters
Perfect for Women's History Month in Spanish classes!
