TEACHER’S GUIDE TO ACCOMPANY Vidas Impactantes
Level 1/2 Reader – Biographical Narrative
Unique Word Count: 250
Explore the fascinating stories of six influential and inspirational Spanish speakers whose lives have been impactful. A baseball star who gave his life helping others, a Cuban exile turned superstar, a mother who never gave up the search for her missing son, a paralyzed soccer star who fought his way to the top in a new profession, a woman who revealed the secrets of history after getting fired from her job, and a shift supervisor in a mine who didn’t realize his shift would last 70 days! You may have heard of these impactful individuals, but after reading their stories you are sure to feel inspired.
The low unique word count 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 each story! The more you enjoy it, the more you will acquire Spanish without even realizing it! Happy reading!
