Product Description
This includes everything you need to incorporate the book Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet by Jamie Ford into a unit on World War II. The book allows for a wonderful look at how the war impacted families on the West Coast, including a window into the experiences of Japanese-Americans, Chinese-Americans, and African-American. Follow my plans as-is, or pick and choose the elements that make sense for your students. Note that this is not a complete unit on World War II--it focuses on how the book can complement the instruction that you are already doing.
