Character Conflict: Language Immersion

Students are often unaware of the challenges faced by their English-language learner peers. Hear the story of Moises, a fictional Spanish-speaking immigrant at an English Immersion School, who faces bullying as well as frustration at his own abilities. Help students understand these conflicts, while also learning new vocabulary and story elements, with this self-paced lesson in the “Inspiring Middle School Literacy’ collection on PBS LearningMedia.  In this blended lesson supporting literacy skills, students watch videos that tell the story of Moises and develop their literacy skills as they explore an English language arts focus on internal and external conflict as a plot device. During this process, they read informational text, learn and practice vocabulary words, and explore content through videos and interactive activities with this lesson.
