About the Novel: Esperanza Rising tells the story of a young girl who's world gets turned upside-down, and must flee to America to start a new life. Esperanza Ortega grew up in luxury on her father's ranch in Mexico. She had servants, nice clothes and lavish parties. Her sheltered life comes crashing down when her father is killed by renegades while tending to a broken fence on his property. Their home is left to Esperanza and her mother, but the land is left to her father's stepbrothers. After their home is burned down, Esperanza, her mother and a few loyal servants flee to America to start better lives. Unfortunately for them, it's the Great Depression and their new lives won't be so great. Esperanza is immediately flung into poverty and struggles to adjust. When they make it to the States, Esperanza falls into a deep depression. When her mother becomes sick, Esperanza must grow up and learn to appreciate what she has. This riches-to-rags story shows that it's not what you possess that bring you happiness, but the people you share it with.

In these times and for future generations, students must learn how to analyze constantly changing issues, decipher media as truth or fake news, and contest highly competitive, biased informational sources. Students must develop knowledge, skills, and attitudes necessary for leveraging their capacity as active citizens charged with holding institutions accountable for truthfully addressing and protecting civil liberties. Extending the Ground of Public Confidence: Teaching Civil Liberties in K-16 Social Studies Education is a book grounded in current scholarship and seeks to address the need for a practical, user-friendly resource for teaching civil liberties in K-12 social studies and teacher education. This book brings together chapter-length discussions about various issues, introduced first from historic perspectives and then compared and described in modern terms. Such topics include, though are not limited to, disputes surrounding freedom of speech and religion, power issues, defending property rights, debates on security of persons and privacy, free exercise of assembly and expression, and the endless debate about who can and cannot vote in U.S. elections. Each chapter contains teaching-ready, inquiry-based learning activities framed by the National Council for the Social Studies (NCSS) College, Career, and Civic Life (C3) Inquiry Arc (2013). Students (1) develop questions and plan investigations; (2) apply disciplinary concepts and tools; (3) gather, evaluate and use evidence; and (4) work collaboratively to communicate conclusions and take informed action. Lesson ideas engage learners across age groups and grade levels in learning that fosters informed, sustainable actions aimed at upholding and protecting civil liberties.
