This 17 page package contains IPA language learning activities that address the themes of global migration and human rights through the powerful music of Los Tigres del Norte.The materials provided can be used at all levels - there is a simple analysis of an authentic language concert poster for the novice learners, and several interpretive activity sheets for higher level learners that address two emotionally stirring songs: Jaula de Oro tells the story of a Mexican father who regrets leaving his homeland. Somos Mas Americanos gives a people's history of the U.S. / Mexican border. There are activity sheets for both songs, with differentiated questions for more advanced learners, and suggestions for interpersonal and presentational activities. These songs can be accessed from YouTUbe, MOG, and other sites. Please watch my page; I will be putting up Power Points that teach the target vocabulary found in the songs. Any profit earned from this item will help to support the Friends Beyond Borders Project: www.friendsbeyondborders.net
