It's St. Patrick's Day, an unknown holiday in Cambodia, and she isn't wearing green. Pinching is a reminder that you're supposed to observe the wearin' of the green on March 17th.
A unique resource containing 15 student-written stories that explain problems of cultural adjustment that each child has faced. This novel approach not only encourages students to welcome cultural diversity but also teaches a specific kind of process writing particularly relevant to the social development of this age group.
