The Other Side by Jacqueline Woodson

Recommended Grades: 4-6

 A fence separates the black side of town from the white side of town.  How does the fence bring two little girls together? 

 Lesson Idea:

 Mentor Text: Civil Rights/Character Development: Read aloud The Other Side and discuss how the characters change by the end of the story.  In what ways do the characters grow?  How does the time period effect change?  Discuss the symbolism of the fence.  What can the reader infer?
