Hooray! This project is fully funded

As a passionate Social Studies teacher, I incorporate numerous resources in teaching my units. One invaluable source for teaching Social Studies is the use of novels related to the subject areas. In our study of China, we examine the history and relate it to the current population. Understanding the past is the key to the future. One of the novels I have chosen to use in the unit is Chinese Cinderella by Adeline Yen Mah. This novel is based on the true accounts of an unwanted daughter. Through the novel we explore the ideas of value and self-worth as well as twentieth- century China. I would like a class set of the novels as well as a copy of the audio book.
