This is an authentic text provided by UNAM focused on the effects and causes of homeless dogs and what one should do to minimize the overpopulation of stray/abandoned dogs in México. I used this reading to cover the Desafíos Mundiales Unit from Temas. I can also apply to Vida Contemporánea and/or Familias y Tradiciones.
The text is pretty lengthy, so you have two options on how you can use it in your Spanish class. Divide the reading into sections and do a jigsaw reading. Within each experto group or home group they can answer the comprehension questions. Or you can assign the whole reading to be read independently as well as the questions.
There are academic vocabulary words highlighted through out the text. You can assign students to find the synonyms of each word or provide the synonym for them.
