Migrant Farmworkers in Boulder County – Spanish Language Lesson

In this lesson students will learn about Latinos’ participation in the agricultural work of Boulder county (1900’s-1940’s), then connect it with María Ramirez’s story as well as the book written “Cajas de Cartón” by Francisco Jimenez. In Spanish, students will integrate the past tenses as well as subjunctive mood. They will discuss their families’ stories of arriving in Boulder, their family’s current feeling of identity and belonging, explore and challenge their ideas of inhabitants of Boulder.
