Reading written in past tense tells the incredible story of director Gabriel Osorio's grandfather Leopoldo. Gabriel made his grandfather's story of imprisonment, exile, and loss into a wonderful allegorical film about a bear who is taken away to the circus. A powerful short film for movie talk, and this reading gives the backstory!
This reading would work well for a Spanish 2 or higher class and is an excellent accompaniment for the study of the Pinochet regime, the Dirty War in Argentina, the Spanish Civil War, or the civil war in El Salvador.
Includes a vocabulary list and comprehension questions with answer key, as well as a writing activity sheet to help students process the text.
Also includes the ONLINE interactive google slides version of the reading and questions activities plus online writing prompt. If the teacher and students have google accounts, all work can be assigned and collected online! Works with laptops, chromebooks, ipads, and more! GO PAPERLESS!
If you DO NOT wish to have the ONLINE components in addition to the reproducible product, the reproducible product can be purchased alone here:
