Conhecimento Comum



This is a picture book about immigrants who came to America. It touches on all the walks of life of the people who have immigrated to the US. I think this is a great book for primary students to introduce ideas of immigration or to read to intermediate students to open up more conversation in the class among students. Overall I think this would be a great book to have in the classroom, but there may be others that might be more beneficial.

A young person recounts their experience going to Tar Beach (the top of the apartment complex in the city that they live in) and gazing at the stars and imagining all the things that young people imagine.

This book would be good for both primary and intermediate level. This book is about how we all are coming from different places and how America is a diverse place. But this is what makes America special. This would be good to use in the classroom to bring awareness about diversity and immigration.

Marcie boards a strange bus to get to school. The bus informs her that she's riding on the Rosa Parks bus. The bus recounts Rosa Park's life from childhood on. This book touches on many subjects in African American history like civil rights, slavery, and racism. Bright illustrations make the book more whimsical and light.
