Familiarize the reader


Familiarize the readers with the context in which the stories take place is key for them to understand better and, in turn, enjoy what they are reading.
            For this, they can pick a part of the book that everyone is reading and present a selection of books related to this that can be found in the school library.  For example, if the class is reading "Los Cuentos de la Selva" by Horacio Quiroga, they can select books like an atlas to situate Uruguay, books about the amazon jungle and its wild animals, Horacio Quiroga's biography, other books by the same author, or other related books. 
The following activities can be done with their selected works:
-Presenting information about the author and the book that is about to be read.  They can use the selected books to show that there is more information outside the book and where to find it.
-Organize a reading hour based on Quiroga's writings and, at the end, have everyone comment o3.  Familiarize the readers with the context in which the stories take place  is key for them to understand better and, in turn, enjoy what they are reading.
