TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Rebeldes de Tejas
Level 1 Reader – Historical Fiction
Unique Word Count: 250
Thousands of illegal US citizens are pouring into the Mexican territory of Texas. When Mexican dictator Santa Anna discovers they have seized the Alamo, he is determined to kill or drive all of them out of Texas. Through the eyes of historical figures, experience posadas, tejano culture and three battles that changed Mexico forever.
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) make this an ideal read for advanced beginning Spanish students. Each page is loaded with cognates (words that are similar in English and Spanish), recycled vocabulary, and illustrations, which makes this read highly comprehensible. Enjoy the story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
