An article on the progression of the role of migrant workers from the 1920's to modern day. Have your students review this article and make an artistic informational timeline of how the role of migrant workers has changed throughout time. This is a great pre-reading activity to help them empathize with the characters in the novel Of Mice and Men. An excellent non-fiction text to meet Common Core Standards.
