Eleventh graders listen to a brief history lesson plan about the 40's and 50's mid-West America and the Migrant workers that worked the fields. Next, learners will read a short story written by Tomas Rivera (both in Spanish and English). Afterwards, in groups of 5 they will discuss the reading. To sum up the lesson plan, learners will write a journal response expressing their feelings about the reading and how they connected to the characters on a personal level.
Fifth graders get critical and political while they begin thinking about human and animal rights in relation to the US Constitution. This hand out includes answers to several questions regarding Cesar Chavez and his work to secure rights for humans and animals. Learners try to answer these questions and then use them during a class discussion.
