Field Trip Program
Antonio, a young and hot-headed mission resident, is found dead in his home just outside the church of San José de Tumacácori. The village suspects foul play.
Students break into groups to investigate by canvassing the neighborhood, conducting interviews, collecting clues, and working collaboratively to piece together the victim's final days. In the process, they learn the in's and out's of mission life.
