Product Description
PPT in PDF format to model how to compare and contrast two Spanish legends. Both legends are Gypsy legends which have been passed down from generation to generation; La profecía de la gitana and La gallina negra.

After modeling, students choose two legends to read and analyze. Using a Venn diagram they compare and contrast. Afterwards they write a composition comparing and contrasting both legends. Great activity to promote critical thinking and apply vocabulary and grammars previously learned in Spanish class. I give students the freedom to select what legends peak their interest. If students are indecisive then I suggest "La Llorona" from Mexico and "La Ciguapa" from the Dominican Republic.

Students truly enjoy reading the legends. They're easy readers and can be quickly read in class or assigned for HW. To guide the students through the process of analyzing the legends I remind them to keep in mind the five W's from English;Who? What? Where? Why? Who? and How? That helps them stay focused and enables them to complete the Venn diagram quickly.

Students are required to write a composition of four paragraphs. Introduction, body and closing.

I also found this great rubric online that I have used for years to grade students writing assignments:
