My students are all affected by the current immigration laws. Many feel uninformed and helpless. I have chosen two books to help my students explore the topic. Enrique's Journey details the adverse journey a young 16 year old Honduran boy faces in order to reunite with his mother. He has not seen her in 11 years and faces a very violent and difficult journey crossing three countries to reunite with her. The second book, In the Country We Love, allows my students the ability to read the story of a 14 year old young woman who is separated from her parents once they are deported. Their stories bring to life the adverse reality happening throughout our country right now and this will help my students understand what role they want to play in their history. Will they be bystanders, victims, perpetrators or upstanders? This is the core of my class. Although they cannot vote, they can do something about the reality that surrounds them. I want them to feel empowered and to see what we can do to change this narrative. Will it be helping others understand the impact family separation has upon our community? Will it be a civic action of heading to Sacramento and demanding specific changes? Will it be helping create a plan for the children left behind so that they have someone to care for them? I am very excited to see how they approach this project and what they choose to research in order to change the narrative of this story. If you can help me by providing me with these texts, I can have each class read them in a staggered manner and all 175 will read both books. Once we read and analyze both narratives, I will then help them choose a topic.
