Handout in PDF format is loosely based on the urban legend of "El gallo de la catedral" which takes place in Quito, Ecuador. It is classified as a colonial legend. Great way to review the use of the Preterit and the Imperfect by making connections to Latin America. Key is provided. Prior to reading the legend I like to ask the students where is Ecuador, what's it's capital and why it was named Ecuador. Nice way to also make a connection to geography. I have students locate Ecuador on the classroom map.
