"Jacob Have I Loved." Learning Page Lesson Plan.
In this middle school social studies and literature lesson plan, pictures from "America from the Great Depression to World War II" in the American Memory collection provide visual images to introduce and spark curiosity about "Jacob Have I Loved" by Katherine Paterson, a novel about jealousy set on an island in the Chesapeake Bay in the early 1940s. Through the lesson, students will develop: a visual image of the place described in words in their reading; a visual image of the activities described in the book and in their further studies of Chesapeake Bay; and a visual image of costume and appearance of the time. The lesson outlines a procedure and an evaluation and extension activity. Provides links to resources. (PM)
