Sor Juana Inés Cruz

I have always admired the story of Sor Juana Inés de la Cruz. Her poetry is daunting to read with students, however, because of the difficult language. I haven given it a try with excerpts from “Redondillas” and comparing it with Storni’s “Tú me quieres blanca.”

I use this video with the students for biographical information: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gPranNMoHdU sor juana lesson

I could not find much that was already prepared, so here is what I created: sor juana lesson

Here are some other resources I have collected:

Biographical reading with audio https://www.sipuebla.com/spanishreader/sor-juana.html

Lesson plans https://edsitement.neh.gov/feature/six-hispanic-literary-giants#sorjuana

I have not seen the film “Yo, la peor de todas” but here are comprehension questions to accompany it: http://www.medina502.com/classes/foundations_la/oral_presentations/Sor-Juana_Yo_la_peor_folleto_fall_2015.pdf

Since “Hombres necios” is on the AP Spanish Literature reading list, there are several resources online. Any AP Spanish Lit textbook will have reading comprehension activities, as well.
