Activator: The History of Shoes (video)

Teaching and Learning Strategies: 

In To Kill a Mockingbird, Atticus explains to Scout that "You never really understand a person until you consider things from his point of view...until you climb into his skin and walk around in it" (36). Imagine spending a day in someone else's shoes in this writing activity. Students examine a variety of shoes and envision what the owner would look like, such as their appearance, actions, etc. They then write a narrative, telling the story of a day in the shoe owner’s life. 

This is the time for your creativity to shine. Post in a Showbie TKAM-Shoes.
