Great Common Core Nonfiction: Children of the Dust Bowl: The True Story of the School at Weedpatch Camp

Great Common Core Nonfiction: Children of the Dust Bowl: The True Story of the School at Weedpatch Camp | CCSS News Curated by Core2Class | Scoop.it

Kathleen Odean recommends using this book (L1120) with the equally excellent but longer and broader book, Years of Dust: The Story of the Dust Bowl, by Albert Marrin (L1040) in working with RL.9, grades 6-8 in comparing/contrasting texts on simliar themes or topics.  

 

Addendum: You might also consider using all or segments of the PBS video entitled "Surviving the Dust Bowl" in conjuction with one or both of the above texts as a way to incorporate multiple sources and multi media.  Click below for the link:
