Hi everyone! We have finished the block of contents dealing with travelling. However, here we are again, on the move, forced to pack. This time for a different reason, not just for pleasure.
Why do people migrate?
What are the push and pull forces that make people move?
How do they feel about leaving their belongings behind?
What do they take with them?
We shall start this term with an old suitcase full of memories from distant lands. What do all these stories have in common? Well, you’ll need to find out. They were compiled by the New York Times a couple of years ago. Your teachers and your classmates last year found them inspiring. We hope you do too.
Homework: Tuesday 11th Read the 12 stories and take notes in your notebook. Which story did you find the most interesting/ moving? Why? Post your comments to the blog. In the power point, you will find the link to the newspaper article.
Also, read some of the comments generated by the article. Choose one and copy it in your notebook. Is there any contribution from a Spanish person ?
