The Statue of Liberty: Double Stories Provide Historical Perspective
Britt, Judy
Social Studies and the Young Learner, v25 n4 p4-8 Mar-Apr 2013
Standing tall in New York Harbor, the Statue of Liberty is an enduring symbol of America. Layers of historical content and symbolism are uncovered in books that tell various parts of her story. By reading one or more of these books, students can begin to see that the experience of immigration is complex--it's not one narrative, but many that are woven together.
