Teaching the novel Vida y muerte en la Mara Salvatrucha Chapter 4

Vida y Muerte is so engaging! And the TG has all of the essentials! These activities are not meant to replace the materials that accompany the guide, they’re meant to compliment it!

Chapter 4 has some great information about how the narrator’s family made the decision to emigrate to the United States. I decided that this would make an excellent reading assessment. I wanted them to look at the chapter through an evidence finding lens, so I adapted a Pinterest literacy pin to suit my needs!

I gave each student a copy of the worksheet and asked them to read individually and provide text-based evidence that supported the main idea: “Gustavo cared for the boys because he was their father’s best friend.” The evidence is easy to find as this chapter details how the two left El Salvador with their wives to start families in the US.

Hope it works well for you!
