Themes, symbols, and motifs come alive when you use a storyboard. In this activity, students will identify themes from "Amigo Brothers" and support their choices with details from the text.


Themes to Look For and Discuss


Friendship

Felix and Antonio's friendship is based on years of trust and support of each other. Antonio and Felix don't let competition or personal gain get in the way of their friendship.


Hard Work

Antonio and Felix rise to the top through hard work. They work out every chance they get, either going to Boys Club or the pro gym, running, or practicing their jabs on the street.


Good Sportsmanship

Felix and Antonio respect each other as boxers. They do not trash talk each other, and they try to follow all the referee's commands. For them, love of the sport is more important than winning.
