Description

Esperanza thought she’d always live with her family on their ranch in Mexico, and that she’d always have fancy dresses, a beautiful home, and servants. But a sudden tragedy forces Esperanza and Mama to flee to California during the Great Depression, and to settle in a camp for Mexican farm workers. Esperanza isn’t ready for the hard labor, financial struggles, or lack of acceptance she now faces. When their new life is threatened, Esperanza must find a way to rise above her difficult circumstance; Mama’s life, and her own, depend on it.

Integrated Literature & Writing Discovery Guides

Level 2 Literature and Writing Discovery Guides are recommended for elementary (grades 3-5) students who are in the process of acquiring the proficiency necessary to confidently read and to respond to a complex piece of literature. Each guide is designed to be completed in five weeks, which allows students to comfortably work through six units in a typical school year.

Each week for four weeks, students will:

  • Learn to take notes on characters, settings, and plot
  • Study vocabulary
  • Answer comprehension questions
  • Write a short personal response
  • Have opportunity to discuss topics related to the story

On the fifth week students are given a selection of hands-on projects to complete.
