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!
