This emergency Spanish sub plan will not only save the day because it is print-and-go, but it will also open your students’ eyes to a world dramatically different from their own. Living On One Dollar is a critically-acclaimed film about what life is like for people living below the poverty line in Guatemala and these 32 questions will keep your students engaged throughout the entire video.
The 56-minute documentary is “an award-winning film that has been called “A Must Watch” by Nobel Laureate Muhammad Yunus and Director of The Hunger Games, Gary Ross. Living on One Dollar follows the journey of four friends as they set out to live on just $1 a day for two months in rural Guatemala. They battle hunger, parasites, and extreme financial stress as they attempt to survive life on the edge. An unimaginable reality for most young Americans, the challenges they face are real and plague over 1.1 billion people around the world. While the friends quickly learn there are no easy answers, the generosity and strength of Rosa, a 20-year-old woman, and Chino, a 12-year-old boy, give them resilient hope that there are effective ways to make a difference.”
