PPT in PDF format to analyze the short story "Los chicos" written by Ana María Matute. I use this ppt as a closing activity and also as a model for a student project in which students select a short story written by the same author and create a PPT to analyze the story and present to the class. Students for HW select a story and read it on their own. Then in class they consult with me so that I can determine if they understood it. Once they get the go ahead, then they make the ppt for HW and present to the class. They get two grades, one for the ppt and the second grade for the oral presentation. I also provide them with a list of suggested stories to get them started: El hijo del cazador, El niño que no sabía jugar, El mar. Suggested level is Spanish 3 Honors, Spanish 4, Spanish for heritge and native speakers and Spanish AP.
