At the age of 23, Selena Quintanilla was considered the ‘Queen of Tejano Music’ and well on her way to becoming one of the most famous musical performers of all time. Her incredible talent and unique Latin style had a profound and lasting impact on the music industry. Learn how this young tenacious woman built a legacy of music, fashion, and family.
‘Selena’ provides an ideal solution to teaching multi-level classes and differentiation! Read a simplified version from the front cover and a more advanced version from the back cover. Each version has a comprehensive glossary, which lists all forms of every word.
The low unique word count and high frequency factor (the number of times core structures are embedded in the text) in the Comprehension-based™ reader, ‘Selena’, 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! We hope you enjoy reading your way to FLUENCY!
