Reviews - What do customers think about La Odisea (Encuentro con la Lectura) (Spanish Edition)?
A little elementary for our needs.. Aug 2, 2008
I thought I was buying a translation of the Odessey, but somehow ended up with a story outline built more for elementary grade 5. I needed it for a high school student (ELL student) who was struggling to get through 9th grade English. It did help her to understand the big picture, and still benefitted her as she was a slow reader, but I'd rather have had a literal translation so she could get the dialogue. I will know in the future that this line of LaRousse books are meant for younger students. It would be a good acceleration book for those who teacher younger to middle grades English Language Learners. You could add it to a classroom library to encourage kids to be familiar with the story long before someone expects them to read it in 9th grade!
