A class with ghosts.
And witches.
And zombies.

2 Eva Perón, La Llorona and spooky students' stories

I'm sure this has happened to you:
You're in bed, at night, and you hear a mysterious noise coming from another part of your house.
What could it be? What would you do?

That's exactly what happened to Carlos Eugenio Moori.
He was a colonel in the Argentine Military Intelligence.
After the military coup that overthrew president Juan Domingo Perón, Moori was in charge of hiding Evita's dead body.
The plan was to remove a powerful symbol for so many Argentines who supported Perón and her deceased wife.

Moori became obsessed with his mission.
No matter where he hid Evita, he always thought her supporters were about to find out.
He became paranoid.
And then, one night, he heard a mysterious noise at this own home.
There was clearly something behind a curtain.
What he decided to do was the biggest mistake of his life..

We tell the whole story of what happened to Moori in the 14th chapter of 15 sueños.
15 sueños is our first reader for Spanish novice leaners and above.
An engaging book to honor the achievements of 15 Spanish champions, including Eva Perón.

The activities about the book are free.
In the activities about Evita's chapter, your students will also read about the Mexican legend of La Llorona.
And they will use those two models (La Llorona and Moori's) to write their own spooky tales.
