Teaching Enrique's Journey: A Story of One Boy's Immigration to the U.S.

During this interactive webinar, we’ll explore the young adult version of Enrique's Journey, a powerful biography, written by journalist Sonia Nazario. When Enrique was five, his mother, too poor to feed her children, left Honduras to work in the United States. She promised she would return quickly, but she struggled in America. After eleven years, he set off alone, and without money, to find her. This book, based on a Pulitzer-prize winning series in the Los Angeles Times, chronicles his harrowing journey to be reunited with his mother, providing insight into the realities of immigration and the people who risk so much for a chance to live in the United States.

In this webinar, we will:

  • Examine key and timely themes of immigration, identity and membership, and how you might address these themes in your classroom

  • Explore lesson ideas and strategies about the literary genre of biography

This webinar is from 3pm–4pm ET. If this time does not work for your schedule, be sure to register and we’ll let you know when the recording is posted in our On-Demand Learning Center.
