New Resource to address the Common Core and explore immigration:

A version of Enrique's Journey by Sonia Nazario, adapted for young readers (middle schoolers and reluctant readers), was just published August 27 with an accompanying teaching guide geared to the Common Core Standards. The regular version of the book, a national bestseller, has been adopted by 62 universities and countless high schools across the U.S.
The book has been particularly effective with bilingual and Latino students, who see many of their own experiences in Enrique’s story.
