I promised a reader I’d have these uploaded by the 20th, and by golly I’ve made the deadline! Use these notes to teach a focused grammar lesson on the present indicative of -IR verbs without departing from culture or comprehensible input. Your students will learn about the guajeros of Guatemala–children that live and/or work in garbage dumps to provide for themselves and their families. Download the plans here.
