CONTRASTING PERSPECTIVES: SHOULD THE FARMWORKERS IN ESPERANZA RISING GO ON STRIKE? (CHAPTER 12: “LOS ESPÁRRAGOS/ASPARAGUS”)

This lesson repeats the Jigsaw structure students have used several times, most recently in Lesson 4 when they were getting to know several main characters. In this lesson, students become experts on Esperanza, Miguel, or Marta specifically to consider the characters’ different experiences with and perspectives about the strike.
