Looking for simple biographies for your English learners to read?

This product features one-page, easy to understand, basic biographies of 11 influential Afro-latino individuals. The biographies are written with limited vocabulary, simple sentence structure, and years are written written out to support students learning number words in English. The kind of information shared about each figure is similar so that students benefit from the natural repetition of vocabulary across all biographies. 

Each biography is accompanied by a one-page worksheet with 10 True/False questions--in English--about the reading. Answer keys are included.
