"Convo con Carlos" is a great reading comprehension exercise based on an on going story of Carlos, a teenager, starting his first day of high school. Each Comic uses more advanced grammar and vocab as students progress through Spanish 1. The series is designed to match chapters 1-8 in the Realidades 1 textbook, but could fit as a supplemental reading exercise in any classroom. I use these as warmups at the start of class and/or an exit ticket. Find the illustrated comic in the free preview section and use it as you'd like. Also available for purchase are the corresponding comprehension questions for each of the 11 episodes.
