TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Testigo: La historia de Brayan
Novice-high / Intermediate-low – Nonfiction Suspense
Unique Word Count: Novice-high: 198 / Intermediate-low: 300
What if we could UNsee an event? What if we could UNexperience a tragedy? For 14 year old Brayan that would mean an end to his fear and paranoia and the return to his home, friends and family. Unfortunately, what Brayan has witnessed has left him alone and fleeing for his life. Will the hope of a better life far beyond the borders of Guatemala be enough to keep him safe? This is the true story of Brayan’s struggle for survival and his quest to rebuild a new life after losing everything.
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, ‘Testigo: La historia de Brayan’, make this an ideal read for novice and intermediate 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!
