Resources to prepare to teach the novel El Silbón de Venezuela in Spanish class - shared by Mis Clases Locas



I am so excited to finally get to teach El silbón de Venezuela for the last book of Spanish 1 this year. You can see all the novels I am using in each level in my Curriculum for Spanish 1-4 here. I purchased a class set El silbón de Venezuela a couple years ago from my friend and fellow Iowan Craig Klein Dexemple and this is the first time I have used it as a full class novel. Here are resources I have gathered to prepare to teach the novel in Spanish 1. 


Before reading the novel
Ever since having a lot of success with reading a novel in one week in Spanish one, I have been really front loading the culture and vocab before starting a novel. This helps students to read the novel quickly, already with the background information that will help them be successful. Here is my tentative plan for this novel, which will take a few weeks before we start the actual novel. 

Other Legends
Before starting the novel we will be introducing legends of the Spanish speaking world with the Cucuy Unit from Martina Bex. 


Intro a variety of versions of El Silbón


Intro Venezuela
  • (Plus I am choosing to wait to dig deeper into the current situation in Venezuela using these news articles until after finishing the book.)
