Analyze the setting behind the Great Depression in California with Pam Munoz Ryan's Esperanza Rising. Middle schoolers assess the protagonist during her coming-of-age moments, while migrant workers manage the hardships of the era. Each student takes on the point of view of someone living during this particular time period. Photographs serve as an inspiration for a journal entry to be published online.
