Who Are America's Harvesters?

Students explore the changes in American farming practices. Through several days of reading and research, students write an essay explaining the changes that have led to the need for migrant workers. Students discuss how workers are hired and why they are willing to work for small wages. They create a poster advertising production by farmworkers and simulate an interview between a migrant worker and a social worker.
