Product Description
Introduce your students to political systems around the world and integrate it with the included reading comprehension activity about the literay genre “el microcuento”. These activities have been taken from the much broader thematic unit of “La Hormiga - guía de estudios literarios para un análisis de la sociedad", and have been extracted to provide teachers with a shorter lesson activity with reading comprehension and discussion activities for the advanced language learner and Heritage speakers. A dynamic tool that can be adapted for oral conversation and discussion, writing practice and testing as a one or multiple lesson supplement to your current curriculum.

What is included (All reading comprehension activities are in Spanish):
• Introduction to “microcuento” literary genre reading comprehension activity
• Reading comprehension cloze activity worksheet
• Bilingual word bank for the reading comprehension
• Question and response worksheets for written or verbal interaction and testing (formatted for seatwork)
• Teacher keys and example responses
• Instructions and procedures for activities
• Daily lesson suggestions (1 week+)
• Reading and writing scoring rubrics
• Teacher resources

Teach your students to appreciate the lifelong process towards an open society and at the same time to question, to analyze and to search for their own truths and understanding of world order. If at a later date you incorporate the genre of the “La doctrina política” into your curriculum, the combined collection of activities provide a set up for understanding the complex social systems of Latin America. All worksheets can be modified for teacher-guided, individual, group or whole class activities.

Essential skill practice:
- Use of time frames (present, past, future)
- Preterite verbs V.S. Imperfect
- Research strategies; Use of glossaries, online dictionaries
