Children of Loneliness: Immigration and Intergenerational Stories

Students evaluate Anzia Yezierska's story, "Children of Loneliness," in relation to Jewish immigrants coming to America. They discuss the connections in the story to their own coming to America and their roles as parents. After discussion, they analyze the role of Rachel and her experience as a female Jewish immigrant and compare it to the role of Jewish men in early twentieth century America.

Lesson Planet has given me great ideas for 3rd grade science hands-on activities! I even got a note from one of my principals observing my class while I was using one of the lessons that I found through this website; she LOVED what I was doing and that the kids were excited and very involved.
