Sharon Robinson was inspired by the storytellers who shaped her life. Based on the real-life friendship between Jackie Robinson, the author's father, and a Dodgers fan who lived two doors down, this book will most certainly delight you and your students. Whether you are only using an excerpt or you are looking to teach the full book, this resource should come in handy. Included within you will find: study guides (and answer keys), in-class activities, a variety of assessments, and two writing assignments. Plus, for those of you out there (like me) who love to combine reading and viewing, I have thrown in the movie guide for The Sandlot.
*This product is editable. In a compressed zipped file you will find both the Power Point and the PDF documents.
