What educators are saying

I use these materials for prereading activities for Vida y muerte de la MaraSalvatrucha 13. The kids love learing this history that was completely unknown!
Thank you very much for this resource. It saved me a lot of time and was meaningful for my students.


This is a reading activity and a video viewing guide to accompany this video:

I use these activities when I teach my Spanish 4 students about the civil war in El Salvador, prior to viewing the film Voces Inocentes and reading the novel Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha 13.

There is a 2-page informational reading about the massacre in El Mozote which asks students to guess the meanings of words in context. There is also a 2 page viewing guide for the Vimeo video.

Please preview the video prior to purchasing this item to assure that it is suitable for your classroom!
