        Sentenced Home | Educator Guide

        Putting a human face on controversial immigration policy, Sentenced Home follows three young Cambodian Americans through the deportation process. Raised in inner city Seattle, they pay an unbearable price for mistakes they made as teenagers. Caught between their tragic pasts and an uncertain future, each young man confronts a legal system that offers no second chances. The lesson plans and film modules in this guide can be used to support viewing of Sentenced Home while engaging students in discussions about citizenship, crime and punishment, immigration history and reform, deportation, and cultural assimilation.
