This short story "Rosa" ties in nicely with my Technology Unit. As students read the story they assume that Rosa is an elderly lady that is being forced to retire. At the end of the story they discover that Angel Balzarino, the author, used personification and that Rosa is actually a computer! We read the story first prior to learning vocabulary for technology. Makes it more meaningful to connect the unit to Rosa. One of my students even drew a colorful Rosa label for my computer. LOL
