I am getting ready to teach the novel "El escape cubano" with my Spanish 1 classes, and I was frustrated to find out there are no comprehensible readings to introduce some basic concepts about Cuba to my kids. Instead of having them to web quests and watch videos in English, I'd like them to learn about it in Spanish.
This is a one page reading in Spanish appropriate for Spanish 1, mid-year. It is meant for use in a CI style classroom but could work in others as well. I also included some easy comprehension questions on the second page (they are in English).
