This low-intermediate biography of dictator Rafael Trujillo goes well with "In the Time of the Butterflies" or the novel "Felipe Alou". It is written in basic past tense (s/he form, mixture of basic preterite and imperfect) with an emphasis on high frequency words. Uncommon words are given English definitions at the bottom of the page.
The document includes a title page, the reading as a single page, the reading split into 4 paragraphs for "jigsaw" reading, and a comprehension question worksheet in English. Enjoy!
