Human trafficking is a global issue impacting all races, colors, and creeds. It is crucial that society sees the global impact of human trafficking, and understands the conditions that support this practice. Students in English IV are studying various forms of human trafficking such as forced labor, sex trafficking, bonded labor, debt bondage among migrant laborers, and involuntary domestic servitude, affecting both adults and children. On the literary side, they are reading the book A Long Way Gone: Memoirs of a Boy Soldier, by Ishmael Beach, which focuses on child soldiers and the dramatic events happening to them. Through the book, students are exploring how setting and environment influence who a person becomes, and to what extent. These are questions that seniors are not only going to be facing in the book this quarter, but also in life as they get ready to graduate from high school.
