This lesson is to teach about Las Patronas. We use this lesson while teaching the novel, “Esperanza” and “Vida y Muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha” but it can be used with any unit on immigration! These authentic resources are sure to peak your students interest in “la bestia” as they learn about the empathy of Las Patronas. See our blog post here for an introduction activity to this lesson. https://discoveringci.wordpress.com/2018/01/22/las-patronas/
