The story of Juan Diego and the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe is known by all Mexicans, Mexican – Americans , Latin Americans and many U.S. Catholics. A very large majority of Mexicans revere the Virgin of Guadalupe, whether or not they are Catholic. Because she is so important to the people of Mexico, it is wise to teach about this legend. I use the word “legend” because whether or not we believe in the veracity of her apparition and subsequent placement of her image on Juan Diego’s tilma, we must be religiously impartial in the public schools.This packet of La Virgen de Guadalupe contains readings (in Spanish) in two levels with pictures to help in comprehension. Level one is written in the present tense and has cognates when possible to facilitate understanding. The exercises are true and false and information gathering (full sentence writing suggested). There is also a fill-in-the-blank exercise. Level two is written in the past tense, using preterite, imperfect and a few past perfects. The vocabulary is kept at a low intermediate level, too. The exercises are information gathering questions and practice forming the past perfect. There is a black and white coloring
sheet of the apparition of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
