8 Use the Immigrant Worksheet and answer the following questions.
Who are the main characters in the novel? Where does the story take place? Can you identify any objects, like the rose bushes that Miguel and his father save from the fire, which act as symbols or seem to have some deeper meaning in the story? What are the important actions in the story, when something important happens? What lessons and meaning do you take away from your reading of the story?

9 Final Project Write a personal response to the changes that Esperanza experiences by the end of the novel. Describe the most important lesson or lessons that Esperanza learns from her experiences. How has Esperanza grown as a young woman from her experiences? Write a letter home to Abuelita, Esperanza's grandmother, in which you imagine you are Esperanza describing what life is like for her and her mother in the United States. You should include as much news as you can, but try not to alarm your grandmother unnecessarily by writing only of bad news. Compare Esperanza's experience with leaving her home in Mexico for the United States with the stories Abuelita tells her in the chapter titled "Los Higos" (figs) about leaving Spain to come to Mexico when she was a young girl. Does her grandmother's experience help to prepare her for her own? How does the story of the phoenix seem to fit with the life Esperanza experiences in California? Compare the camp where the strikers are staying to the camp where Esperanza is living and the new camp being built for the Okies. What do the differences in the living conditions at these camps suggest about the differences among the social status of these different groups of laborers?
