With access to a whole class novel, students who read the book A Long Walk to Water will learn about two characters in Sudan; a young boy who was affected by the Sudanese Civil War in the 1980s and 90s and a girl living in modern Sudan who must spend her days walking to get water for her family. The novel interweaves these two stories together, revealing their connection at the end. Many of my students would never consider the idea of not being able to have a drink of water whenever they want it. Imagine how their perspectives might change if they had to carry all their water home with them from school every day. A Long Walk to Water gives them an opportunity to learn about the struggles of children their age in an appropriate format. Additionally, with a whole class novel, we can work on building skills and using strategies to grow as readers and critical thinkers. This novel can spark student interest in reading and allow us to improve comprehension for many kids. Finally, the main character in the novel experiences a journey that changes him forever, and he commits himself to helping make others' lives better. This idea of giving and community service is one that is so important to teach kids. Helping others and building a sense of community is a strong goal within my classroom and school that I would like to continue to foster.​
