Product Description
Handout is for the short story "El árbol de oro" written by Ana María Matute. Students will re-read the story and indicate if the statements are true or false. Great way to get the students to re-read. Students work with a partner and then the class reviews answers as a whole class activity. Key is provided.

As a closing activity I have students select eight important events in the story and
create a story board. Students draw the events and under each box write a sentence to summary the event. If time allows, they can also color it.

Afterwards I like to display their storyboards in the classroom. Not only is it a pretty decoration for the room but also it's functional because it allows the students to quickly makes connections to this story when we read the second story written by the same author.

The second story read in class is "El niño al que se le murió el amigo". After reading both stories students work on a Venn Diagram:

As a culminating activity students write a composition comparing and contrasting both stories using their Venn Diagrams.
