Immigrants’ Hope: Improving Families, Workplaces, and Communities Over Time The best way to improve our future is to look at our past. Therefore, we will be conducting a case study about immigration for the next month. Esperanza Rising Virtual Quilt Using www.VoiceThread.com, you will weave together Pam Munoz Ryan’s words and your imagination to create a virtual quilt. • You will listen to non-fiction and historical fiction texts daily to deepen your background knowledge of immigration and gain tolerance for those who have different experiences than you have had. • You will read Esperanza Rising. As you read, you will reflect on the story and record your ideas in writing and pictures. Small groups will meet to discuss chapters on the following days (see below). Please complete your reading before your group meets. • You will speak about the novel in reading groups. When we have completed the book, you will photograph your illustrations and upload them to the VoiceThread website. You will then use your written reflections to narrate your work using a web-camera. Your ideas should be insightful and easy for the audience to understand. • You will write a paragraph summary of each chapter and illustrate it. Describe the main events and why they are significant to the plot. It is your job as a reader to pick up the author’s clues and visualize the events of a story. Include the page number and copy a favorite passage from the chapter and explain why it caught your attention. Use proper mechanics: grammar, spelling, and capitalization. Draw a picture to illustrate each chapter. Explain any symbols or important items you drew. • Classmates will view and comment on each other’s VoiceThreads, and family members and friends will be able to view your work.Due Date 10/23 10/24 10/27 10/29 11/5 11/6Chapter 1 2 3 4 5 6Title Las Uvas Las Los Las Los Las Papayas Higos Guayabas Melones CebollasDue Date 11/10 11/12 11/13 11/17 11/19 11/20 11/21Chapter 7 8 9 10 11 12 13Title Las Las Las Los Los Los Las Almendras Ciruelas Papas Aguacates Esparragos Duraznos Uvas
