PPT for Rosa written by Angel Balzarino includes a pre-reading activity, reviews characters, setting and conflict and at the end has reading comprehension questions. I use this short story with the technology unit. The story personifies a computer that is old and is being replaced (climax of story). I made the connection to retirement and had them share when their grandparents retired to make it personal. Once they had the personal connection, I had them read the story. Afterwards, I introduce the vocabulary for the technology unit. Great way to enforce the literary use of personification. Story is short and can be read easily in class. Story can be found online: http://www.literareafantastica.com.ar/rosa.html
