This download includes two authentic, Spanish-language articles that will greatly promote reading comprehension development and support units on the Environment and Helping others in the community.
The first article describes an effort to help children in Africa by auctioning off autographed jerseys from professional soccer players.
The second articles summarizes the list of best and worst countries as they are ranked globally according to their resource management and pollution control.
Each of the articles has a list of comprehension questions for discussion or assessment. Both articles are ideal for Spanish Levels 2 and above or for any group who has studied thematic units that relate to helping others and the environment.
This will be a great addition to your current unit plan and works very well as part of your substitute teacher materials. You can also use it for homework, as a differentiation tool, as part of a mini-lesson, or as a pre-reading assignment for a class discussion.
In fact, Science classes with speakers of Spanish can employ this as a cross-curricular and reading activity.
