In this lesson, students will identify and discuss causes and effects in Jane Addams's life. In addition, there is a bonus "enrichment" piece where students craft thematic statements from topics and discuss the meanings of some of Jane Addams's famous quotes.
The House That Jane Built, by Tanya Lee Stone is the inspirational true story of Jane Addams - the mother of social work and the first American woman to receive the Nobel Peace Prize.
Students love learning about real people and their stories of fulfilling their dreams. Jane is a wonderful role model.
This lesson is aligned with Common Core State Standards (CCSS) as well as Virginia SOLs.
