Overview:

This unique resource is a tool to assist intermediate-mid and intermediate-high Spanish students as they organize written essays. Each box of the graphic organizer features a target language question and space to write key information gathered from any type of resource (Audio or Written). Students are asked to identify the author's primary message then analyze the resource for organizational structure, functions, audience, and tone. Next students identify key people, places, and times referenced in the resource. Finally, they identify more details regarding people addressed in the resource. (This last step can be left off or adapted if the chosen article does not emphasize characteristics of specific people.)
