~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Students will understand via their own guided research India’s cultural restrictions on females and how this plays a major role in human trafficking in the country.

The video, "Its a Girl," is excellent and will help students to understand the India's female gendercide.

Students will journey with Lakshmi as she struggles as a slave in a dehumanized setting.

Students will read online newspapers articles about different types of human trafficking and compare these experiences to those of Lakshmi.

Students will also understand tone, mood, and symbolism by selecting modern songs as they relate to the vignettes in Sold.

Finally, students will create a response booklet and they analyze Lakshmi’s experience day by writing and expressing their opinions on various topics.

Watching the video Taken is an option and may be watched before the test. I have included a video guide is this is an option you choose.

My students enjoyed the movie and while much is exaggerated, the video did provide a visual of how traffickers can steal and sell young girls.
