Product Description

This 50-minute lesson starts with a quick look at what life is like for migrants in the caravan. Students first consider what the challenges are for people making this difficult journey. Next, students watch an, Al Jazeera news segment that explores the answers to the questions: Who started the caravan and why has it formed now? Students practice their skills of assessing claims and evidence to see if they can determine credible answers to these questions. This lesson also includes a close reading of a Q & A article. Students use a graphic organizer to record the claims and evidence provided in the article. They end by evaluating the article's recommendation for actions the US government should take to solve this crisis. This lesson is part of a bundle of 4, but it can also be implemented separately.
