In this episode we meet Rosaura, an immigrant from Honduras living in Long Island who works a grueling schedule cleaning houses to support family living back in Honduras. Rosaura tells the story of her arrival, her daily life and struggle to support her daughter and grandchildren who depend on her for their survival. Then we go with the journalist to Tegucigalpa to meet her daughter Amalia, and learn about the gangs and violence that threaten their daily existence. Honduras is the most dangerous country in the Western hemisphere and Amalia's story is terrifying. This podcast runs nearly 30 minutes and might be divided between two class periods or works well with a block schedule where you can stop the podcast mid point to discuss. Many of my students have faced similar exodus from life threatening situations, and this podcast sheds valuable insight as to the reasons why people are willing to risk their lives fleeing their country to seek asylum here. Lesson works well for a AP Spanish class discussing global challenges or a Heritage Speakers class where students can compare their own families experiences to the protagonist. Download contains 17 chronologically ordered questions, opinion prompts for personal comparison/connection and an answer key.
