book æ America Street A Multicultural Anthology of Stories Å Anne Mazer

Welcome to America Street where every story is as vital and uniue asthe friends neighbors and relatives we encounter every day Here arefour Overall this is a good collection of multicultural short stories that could be used in a middle school classroom Some are stronger than others but there are definitely a few gems in the mix Ironically many of these stories have appeared in textbooks that were previously used in our school district The No Guitar Blues by Gary Soto was in the 7th grade Holt series before we went to Prentice Hall It will be helpful to go back to old textbooks to find uestions activities and projects which coincide with certain pieces Clearly the two strongest and most meaningful stories are Thank You Ma'm by Langston Hughes and President Cleveland Where Are You? by Robert Cormier Hughes' story is about a young boy who tries to steal Mrs Luella Bates Washington Jones' purse Instead of turning him over to the police she takes him home washes his face feeds him and teaches a valuable lesson Cormier's story is about a boy who collects cowboy trading cards from gum packs with his friends When the gum company switches from cowboys to Presidents the boys are bound and determined to find each one in order to earn the prize of a signed baseball glove The boy learns a valuable lesson when it comes to putting his father's needs before his own wants My biggest complaint about the collection is all the stories are so different and the only over arching connection between them is multiculturalism I would have liked some organization by theme to tie some stories together further
