I love reading this Aztec legend with my students. I try to read it with them on or before Valentine's Day since it's such a romantic legend. I also have included this legend in my Aztec unit. I like to use legends to make connections to the history of Mexico. In addition, legends are great to review the use of Preterit vs Imperfect.
This quiz is multiple choice test of 20 questions for the Mexican legend "Los novios." I use this as a formal assessment to see if students fully understood the legend. Great assessment for reading comprehension. I use scantrons to make grading easier. Scantrons can be purposed at Staples. Scantrons can also be purposed at Amazon:
I was actually able to purchase a used scantron machine online which I keep at my desk. Makes grading so easy, especially since I give weekly quizzes. When family members ask me what I want for my birthday, etc. I always respond "Amazon gift card". I used the gift cards towards purchasing scantrons and the machine. I no longer have to spend the entire weekend grading papers : )
