Description:

<p>By Mitzi Moore</p><p>A summer assignment asks students to read the book Bamboo People, by Mitali Perkins, and complete assignments in every class that are connected to the book. At the beginning of the school year, teachers use the assignments to extend the learning and help students understand the major themes of the book (child soldiers, landmines, literacy, and service to others). A video conference with the author is planned, as well as interactions with people familiar with modern-day Myanmar/Burma. The culminating activity is to bring all the assignments together in one place by publishing a blog post.</p><p>These works are licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.</p>
