Product Description
This comic strip version of Romance de la Pérdida de la Alhama, created by one of my talented students (she will receive half of the proceeds), is a great introduction to what transpires in this poem. Additionally, this pre-reading activity front-loads the students with some important lines and quotes, bringing the student up to speed on the significance of the poem.

The one page comic strip comes with 6 pictures, gets students thinking about the themes associated with the story.

Also included:

- an introduction to the Moros in Spain
- an explanation of the "octosílabo" poem and practice to count them
- an explanation of the "estribillo"
- literary terms/figuras explained
- write the cognados, such as "cristianismo", "bravesa", and others

These drawings are used as a scaffolding piece. I use them to create a group discussion around the pertinent themes. Students in our AP Language and other courses (Heritage and 3 Honors) have also utilized this comic strip as a form of preparation, or vertical teaming, for the AP Spanish Literature and Culture class.

Students transition much more effectively into the poem because they have a clear visual representation in their mind of the character and the story line.
