Product Description
If you're looking to teach your students about the topics of undocumented immigration (also called illegal immigration) then you're in for a bumpy ride. The award winning movie A Better Life (Esp: Una Vida Mejor) is an easy yet meaningful way to introduce students to this complicated theme.

I showed it to my high school students (grades 9-12) in San Diego, California. Many students learned a great deal about what immigration and crossing the boarder really means.

If you haven't seen the movie, you can watch a trailer here.

This movie study packet contains 5 days worth of ready-to-print materials, worksheets, and lesson plans all relating to A Better Life. The materials are provided in English (Spanish version will be up soon!) so that you may use them in the Social Studies or History classroom as well.

Materials Included:
--5 lesson plans
--2 (1-page) comprehension worksheets (answer key included)
--1-page true/false comprehension quiz (answer key & explanations included)
--16 slide power point presentation
--2 Possible Extension Activities
--1 page Venn Diagram worksheet

**Note: The actual film is not included

Students Will Learn
--What crossing the US-Mexican boarder really means
--The major plot points of the film A Better Life
--How to measure their learning with a Venn diagram
--The complications and struggles of living as an undocumented migrant
