Using the Google form found in each Index teachers can contribute the materials they create in any platform for the benefit of other teachers.

All individual accounts include e-notebooks, which can be used by teachers for lesson plans and notes, and used by students to reflect on their reading and comprehension. Teachers can view the entries in these student notebooks and keep students accountable with the time-per-file tracker.


Now even beginning students can read and experience the authentic Mexican folktale La Llorona in Spanish. This series of lessons shows how to let the story unfold and how to keep students engaged all along the way.


This lesson plan book explains how to present the story step-by-step.


Written with just 100 total words, the accompanying easy reader, La Leyenda de la Llorona Embedded Reading, is designed for level I, semester 1 students. With the ascending levels in the story, teachers can begin wherever their students need to start. This resource can even be used again in a following course with growing levels of complexity as students acquire more and more language.


Contains complete lesson plans for 10 days of activities for the embedded reading.



“What I love about your Llorona project is that it gives a teacher a blueprint of how to work with a story. Your work helped me understand a lot better how to put some things together.”
—Michele Whaley, co-developer of Embedded Reading


“Bryce has outdone himself with an incredible body of work based on La Llorona. Every step along the way he describes how to pre-teach vocabulary, use the readings, segue from step to step and more. This is an incredible resource for anyone wondering how Embedded Readings can be used in the classroom. It is really a primer for this kind of work.
Don’t worry if you are not fluent in Spanish! There is great information here that anyone can use.”
—Laurie Clarcq, co-developer of Embedded Reading
