Abstract:

"The Line Between Us" explores the history of U.S-Mexican relations and the roots of Mexican immigration, all in the context of the global economy. And it shows how teachers can help students understand the immigrant experience and the drama of border life. "But The Line Between Us" is about more than Mexican immigration and border issues. It's about imaginative and creative teaching that gets students to care about the world. Using role plays, stories, poetry, improvisations, simulations and video, veteran teacher Bill Bigelow demonstrates how to combine lively teaching with critical analysis. "The Line Between Us" is a book for teachers, adult educators, community organizers and anyone who hopes to teach, and learn, about these important issues. The book is divided into the following sections: (1) Teaching About 'Them' and 'Us'; (2) Historical Roots of the Border; (3) NAFTA's Impact; (4) First Crossing; (5) Life on the Border; and (6) Resources.
