Product Description
This is a sweet little movie that lasts two class periods and is rated PG. It is best suited for students in the first couple of years of Spanish study and is appropriate for middle or high school students. This movie works well with Under the Same Moon as it looks at a father son relationship between an undocumented single dad and his American born son. Topics explored include limited work options, inability to report crimes, temptation to join a street gang and drop out of school. My middle school students loved this film, and I was happy to be able to use it to explore the topic of how the US handles undocumented workers with a fictional storyline. Movie guide contains 19 questions that follow the film in chronological order and three topics for follow up discussion. Takes two class periods to show, or three with time for discussion and questions. Movie guide and most of film are in English.
