Looking to integrate contemporary issues facing the Spanish speaking community into your Spanish class? Search no further!! This amazing documentary will enlighten your students on the “why” immigration is happening. The movie states that immigration is the effect, so we must study what is the problem causing it. A much more worthwhile ‘movie experience’ than the traditional feel good movie (or Disney movie) shown in many Spanish courses.
This bundle includes:
- a lengthy packet of comprehension questions separated to coincide with each section of the film.
-Vocabulary related to the film
-Answer key to vocabulary quiz
- Post viewing questions relating to statistics discussed in the film as well as opinion questions
- A follow up project researching immigration
- Assessments including: presentational speaking, writing, and interpersonal speaking
The vast majority of the film is in Spanish with English subtitles, so can be used in a variety of levels of Spanish classes. My students were genuinely impacted by the stories they heard, it opened their eyes to the difficulties immigrants face, and it put a face to the problem.
A DVD copy can be purchased online.
All questions/ vocab are in Spanish. It can be easily modified to English for a lower level Spanish class.
