Literature Unit - Esperanza Rising (/Online)

by Kim A. Howe, M.S.

Enjoy the story of a girl who is forced to migrate from Mexico to California when her family is faced with tragedy. America is not as she imagined, and she must learn to get by on her own hard work and hope. Through this online unit, learn more about the Great Depression and the impact it had on families who struggled to survive. Gain a glimpse into the lives of migrant farm workers and the culturally rich Mexican-American community. Practice writing dialogue and using transition words effectively, learn some Spanish vocabulary, and participate in a readers' theater dramatic presentation. For the final project, design a set and a script for a movie trailer based on the book.

This package includes online access to your curriculum, Learning Gates, and Portfolio for 18 months.
