Even as a young girl growing up in Ojo de Agua, Dominican Republic, Minerva Mirabal had a keen sense of justice, and was never afraid to stand up for the powerless. Not surprisingly, the tenacious young woman became a lawyer and an activist. However, as the threats of a tyrannical dictatorship edged closer to her own home and family, her refusal to be silent became more dangerous. This is the inspiring account of one woman and her sisters, the “Butterflies,” who defied their fear and raised their voices, courageously becoming an inspiration to the world.
This Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Minerva’, strategically weaves high-level language structures into a compelling story, based on high-frequency vocabulary. Even upper level language students need repeated exposure to language structures in order to acquire them, and Fluency Matters’ intermediate readers maintain a high frequency factor of high-level language structures, thus helping learners progress beyond typical proficiency levels. But do not focus on language structures or the advanced grammatical features embedded in this story. Rather, focus on enjoying the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
