JARED

 

If I had a dollar for every time Banner Morales made my heart skip a beat...

 

The heart everyone assumes is frozen over.

 

Her anger is...arousing.

 

Every glare from those fire-spitting eyes, every time she grits her teeth,

gets me...well, you know.

 

If I had a dollar for every time she's put me in my place, I'd be an even richer man.

I'm a successful sports agent because I assume "no" means you'll think about it.

 

I'm sure what you meant to say is "Coming right up.”

 

They say even rich men don't always get what they want,

but those men don't know how to play the game. The trick is to keep them guessing.

 

Take Banner. She assumes she's winning, but this game?

 

 

She doesn't even know how to play.

 

 

BANNER

 

If I had a dollar for every time Jared Foster broke my heart, I’d have exactly one dollar.

 

One night. One epic fail. One dollar...and I'm out.

 

I've moved on.

 

I’ve found success in a field ruled by men.

 

 

Anything they can do, I have done better.

 

They can keep the field while I call the shots, blocking them when I have to.

 

And Jared has the nerve to think he gets a second chance?

 

Boy, please. Go sit down. Have several seats.

 

I'll just be over here ignoring the man carved from my fantasies with a lust-tipped chisel.

 

Oh, I didn't say the struggle wasn't real.

 

But I've got that one dollar, and Jared won't have me.

Esperanza Rising
Esperanza Rising - Pam Muñoz Ryan

Esperanza Rising is a book about a young girl named Esperanza who lives with her family in Mexico but a sudden tragedy forced them to flee to California during the Great Depression. Esperanza's life was turned upside down and forced to work to help support her family through the situation. The text displays her struggles and how she overcomes them. When I read this book I felt connected to it. It reminded me of how strange and out place I felt when I moved to the US as a little girl. This book could be used successfully while teaching about immigration and the Great Depression. It could also be introduced while discussing point of view in the classroom.

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration
Coming to America : The Story of Immigration - Betsy Maestro,Suzanne Ryan

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration is a wonderful book to help students learn about immigration. The text tells the story of various immigrant groups coming to America and the challenges that they faced. The text also celebrates their cultural contributions to our country. As an extension activity, students could be put in small groups where each group researches one of the cultural groups mentioned in the text in depth and then presents their findings to the class.

Coming to America: The Story of Immigration
Coming to America : The Story of Immigration - Betsy Maestro,Suzanne Ryan

This book tells about the story of immigration and how many people came to America to live a better life. It describes the first time the government opened Ellis Island and the young girl that was the first person to come through that port, Annie Moore. The book also mentions the United States as a melting pot because of the many different kinds of people that now live here. 

This would be a great book to introduce the term immigration and then the teacher could have the students learn about their own family history. This could become a project where the students present their findings to the class. This would allow the students in the class to see the history behind everyone else in the class and try to understand each other a little more.
