The legend of La Llorona comes alive in this adaptation of the popular Mexican folktale. Now even beginning students can read and experience a real story from the culture—all in easy-to-read Spanish.
With this extremely effective form of scaffolding, students read multiple versions of a text, with each version increasing in detail and complexity. This version of the dramatic and culturally significant Mexican folk legend La Llorona was developed with guidance from Laurie Clarcq and Michele Whaley, the creators of embedded reading. The story unfolds as the reader learns more about La Llorona’s tragic tale and acquires more language with each step.

“I am not a Spanish teacher, but when I read Bryce’s La Llorona unit I was able to understand it because it set me up for comprehension and flowed so well. Bryce makes input comprehensible and leads readers to new heights!”
