Have your students brainstorm in small groups about migrant workers, keeping notes that they can use to present a report to the class. Collect the information from the groups and display it on a chalkboard or screen so that you can discuss it as a class. After they have read Rivera's novel, ask students to revisit their compiled information and make revisions. What changes in facts and opinions occur? Discuss those changes.
Have students compare different translations of the opening or closing paragraphs of . . . y no se lo tragó la tierra/ . . . And the Earth Did Not Devour Him. What differences do they find? Discuss the problems of reading translated works.
