Pronounced [L Tra co] This story is a Chile folktale about a superhuman dwarf that meets a young teenage girl named Isidora on her way home from school. He tricks her into believing he is handsome so he can take advantage of her. Because he is a coward he runs when she starts screaming, but not before he freezes her and turns her into a wooden stump. This piece has 14 questions and a rewrite the ending of the story. El Trauco is perfect for Hispanic Heritage Month or for a scary story in the month of October. The questions are in regular and modified version.
I have added a YouTube video link on the answer sheet. Just make sure you view it to make sure it is appropriate for class. There are other videos, but they are in Spanish. This one has no language.
