Wetback Film Lesson Guide

An interdisciplinary lesson guide to accompany the film Wetback. The aim is for students to see migration as a global issue, not just as Latin America-U.S. phenomena. With that in mind, the goal is to make deliberate links between sophomore World Literature and Spanish level 3 classrooms.  Teachers will use a variety of media (film, immigrant interview, nonfiction and fiction readings of various types) to study the stories of migrants, why they migrate, the challenges the face and how their stories are told.
