Product Description
This comic strip version of El Sur, created by one of my talented students (she will receive half of the proceeds), is a great introduction to what transpires in this literary work. Additionally, this pre-reading activity front-loads the students with some important lines and quotes from the characters, bringing the student up to speed on the personalities and their purposes in this famous Jorge Luis-Borges short-story.

The one page comic strip comes with 6 pictures, and an additional page that includes build-up activities to get students thinking about the themes associated with the story.

These build-up activities include:
- a ranking questionaire, personal questions related to the themes in the story,
- a brief outline of 3 literary terms/devices used in the story,
- a section to complete synonyms used in the story,
- and a section where students fill in cognates used in the story

In their entirety, the above build-up activities 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 strips as a form of preparation, or vertical teaming, for the AP Spanish Literature and Culture class.

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