PPT for the short story "Las medias rojas". PPT has pre-reading questions and questions for students to answer as they read the story. Also includes brief background information for Galicia.
This story is required reading for the Spanish literature AP test. Story can be easily found online: http://litgloss.buffalo.edu/bazan/text.shtml
I have also used this story in my Spanish 4 Honors course to make a connection to Social Studies and Immigration unit. The story takes place during the famine in Spain and massive immigration to the new colonies in Latin America.
I usually teach this lesson in November for Elimination of Violence Against Women month. In this story the father is physically abusive to the daughter so it ties in nicely with the topic of Elimination of Violence Against Women. In that month I also teach my unit on the Mirabal Sisters that fought Trujillo.
