Conversaciones de la inmigración is designed for an upper level Spanish class (recommended level 3 through AP Spanish). These are discussion guides designed to get your students thinking and talking about immigration issues in the U.S.
Included are five topics related to current United States immigration issues:
2. El caso de Eduardo Vielma
3. El caso de Martín Esquivel Hernández
4. El muro
5. Ciudades Santuario
“Migracorridos” relates to the U.S. involvement in the production of Migracorrido music in an effort to deter border crossings. The two cases are related to deportation issues. “El muro” is about a photographer who made an art exhibition from her photos of the border wall. “Ciudades Santuario” discusses sanctuary cities and the repercussions that may follow.
With each topic, you will find links to articles (some in English, some in Spanish) that the students will need to read before the in-class discussion. Each topic has a handout that the students will follow in order to guide them in their discussion.
Each topic will take one class period to complete. They may be completed individually and in any order.
