In these uncertain times where people are being targeted because of their faith or the color of their skin, I have gone back to the 19th century and written a very positive text. Racism vanquished. If we can teach openness to the ´Other´ perhaps we can go forward! This is my small contribution.
Did you know that Peru has a very large Asian population? Did you know that in the 19th century 100,000 Chinese contract laborers came to Peru? Did you know that women were not allowed to come with the men? Did you know that the Peruvian government then closed the borders for over thirty years?
The Chinese laborers married local women, became first small business owners and then prospered and became professionals. They integrated into Peruvian society and today play a very important role.
So, here is a thematic unit called Peruanos chinos, una historia
desconocida, 12 pages.
For Spanish 2 at the high school level or Spanish 2 in community colleges.
Many past tenses.
The unit Includes
