Teachers will say "gracias" and vote these printables as "muy bien" when they use these worksheets/tests/homework assignments with their classes. With a focus on Hispanic families, the critical-thinking questions relate to young protagonists who grow up as children of first-generation immigrants in the United States and who subsequently learn valuable lessons. These printables reinforce "Catch the Moon," "American History," and "An Hour with Abuelo" and are a perfect segue way into the study of Hispanics in America. A question and answer sheet that compares and contrasts these narratives by Judith Ortiz Cofer is also included, as are detailed answer keys for all three stories.
