The Creative Teacher: Activities for Language Arts (Grades 4 through 8 and Up)
I really like this book and the message it has toward, perspectives. It is our view really of what makes something valuable or not. Is a job respected only out of what others think? or does one's role in society matter through the eyes of the beholder and what lies within? Such ideas and thoughts could be discussed by asking them to our students first, in a journal writing activity and then second, asking those to share their personal beliefs on what are important positions today.
This story could easily be integrated into a Social Studies unit of tracing the role of migration and immigration of people in the development of the United States. Encourage students to think about the role of children and those of smaller jobs that had a part in what America is today, because of them.
