Product Description
Handout in Word document format loosely based on the Butterfly sisters and the Dictador Trujillo. There are 60 fill in the blanks. Verbs: admirar, asesinar, asistir, ayudar, casar, conocer, convertir, declarar, desear, escribir, estudiar, exigir, hacer, ir, llamar, nacer, ser, soñar, participar, poder, poner, tener, querer, venir. Key is provided.
Handout makes connections to the Parsley Masacre which can lead to another lesson. Parlsey Masacre was a genocide that occurred in the Dominican Republic. There are numerous documentaries on You Tube related to this masacre which teachers can share with students. I usually teach the Parsley Masacre and the Maya Genocide in Guatemala. I close my unit with a viewing of El Norte which starts off with two young Mayan teens escaping Guatemala and coming to the USA.
