MIGRANT FAMILIES Rationale: Approximately 47,000 migrant farmworkers and their family members come to work in New York each year. Many of the children in these families attend New York s schools. Many labor issues and health issues surround their lives. This activity is designed to help students: Understand the process of getting food from the table Appreciate the hard work done by migrant farm workers Trace the paths farmworkers take as they travel from state to state as crops ripen Learn how moving and working with their parents impact the lives of migrant farmworker children Identify cultural traditions, values, and strengths of immigrant farmworkers and the difficulties they face as new members of rural communities PHOTO INVESTIGATION Intro: Included are six photographs of migrant farmworkers and their environments. Allow students to observe and investigate the photos, but do not provide any information about the photos (do not include captions). Ask students to interpret what they see. MIGRANT WORKERS AND MIGRANT CHILDREN Process: 1. Divide students into groups of four or five. Each group should have a discussion director, recorder, and reporter. 2. Explain to students that they should spend a few minutes talking about what they see in the photos. Guiding Questions: Where do you think this picture was taken? Where do these people live? What kind of work do they do? How long do they work? What is their family life like? What is their home like? Do the children not go to school? 3. Pass out the photo analysis sheet to the groups. After they complete this sheet, ask students to write a story about their picture. Students should then read and share their writings with the rest of the class. Be sure to: Look for similarities and themes in their pieces Write down anything that comes up frequently Display students work around the room Record on chart paper 4. Hand out the actual caption to the photos to each group. Discuss the actual descriptions that accompany the photos and compare them with the ones generated by the class. Focus on the stereotypes that may have come up during the discussion. Ask if students were surprised by any of the actual captions.
10 Photograph Analysis Worksheet Observation Study the photograph for two minutes in your group. Form an overall impression of the photo and then examine individual items (faces, things in the background). Divide the photo into four sections, and study each section to see what new details become visible. Use the chart below to list people, objects, and activities in the photo. PEOPLE OBJECTS ACTIVITIES Analysis List three things that the photo makes you think about. Whom do you think this photo is about? What is the life of this person like?
11 Photograph Discussion Questions What do you see? What do you think it is? How do you feel about it? Who are the people in the picture and hat may they be thinking about? Where are they from? What is happening in the rest of the picture? Where do you think this picture was taken? Where are these people living? What kind of work do their parents do? How long do they work? What is their family life like? What is their home like? Do the children go to school?
