We're going to get into Esperanza Rising today by reading some more of that book. We're also going to learn a little bit more about the setting of the book. 


  • I can describe the geographical setting of Esperanza Rising. 
  • I can describe the historical setting of Esperanza Rising.
For today's lesson, you need to know some vocabulary words. We'll go over them in class, but here's a reminder of those important words

Today's assignment

There's two resources that you'll need for today's assignment. The first is a reading about the historical setting of Esperanza Rising. The second is a political map of North America

 After you look at those two resources (make sure you look at both!), then you can answer the questions

What you'll be graded on

  1. Have you answered all parts of the question?
  2. For questions 3, 4, and 5, you should write at least 4 sentences for each answer.
