Little Tree goes ahead with his grandparents in the mountainside to live with them after his parents have passed away. The book centers on the life of the little boy as he grows in his new life where his grandfather teaches him almost everything he has to know, starting with the ways of the Cherokee community in which he would live, and living freely in the forest with nature surrounding them. The author describes a boy, who lives a free simple life with nature where the hustle and bustle of the society does not carry away his life.
I will readily admit that it is none of my business what you put into your curriculum. You are captain of your own ship as am I. While doing so, I have come across the novel on reading lists for classes as early as the fifth grade. I realize that the reading level of Little Tree is fairly low, but this was meant to be an adult novel.
I would be happy to handle these last two situations in a classroom, but they cannot be ignored or they will confuse students. These situations can be handled by some children, but not by all.
The reading level of the novel is low but these are mature topics that can not and should not be handled without at least individual and very personal attention.
If, perhaps, you believe that the student who is not ready for these ideas will not notice them, then I ask, why read the novel at all?
Many of the wonderful morals this tale offer are also for mature minds to consider. Why spoil a good novel by placing it before the reader before it is time?
This is probably the most important question when learning how to read.
No matter what I teach you or any other teacher teaches you, it all comes down to what you thought about the book. And it all depends upon who you are. Ten years from now, will you be the same person you are today?
Hopefully, the answer is no. Then, who are you today? That is the first question. In a well crafted essay of about five hundred words, I would like you to introduce yourself. What are the important things that I should know about you? Why are these things important? What are your dreams?
What are your aspirations? What makes you special? I am asking for a well crafted essay and I expect that you will comply with this request, but bear in mind that I will not be grading this in terms of grammar or spelling.
I am expecting to learn about you, therefore the grading will be based upon how seriously you seem to take the assignment.
I want to feel that you are trying to make an informative impression. I want to feel as if you are trying to communicate with me, a relative stranger.
Because we are strangers to each other, I am not expecting intimate, personal details about you, but I do want you to share the topics that you consider to be essential for a teacher, coach or mentor to know about you.
Five hundred words is a relatively lengthy first assignment, but you know the topic well. The best essays tend to be written by students who plot out an outline or make a diagram that lists some of the ideas that the writer wants to put into her piece.
If you are not sure how to go about this, stop by during the extra help period and I will be glad to show you a couple of ways to go about this important step. Please go to the Manuscript Form Page to get information about how to present your papers. Okay, now I will have an idea of who you are.Sentence 5: Thesis Statement for this paper – “Although Little Tree had no formal education, he received a rich and abundant education from his Cherokee grandparents.” Paragraph 2: Sentence 1: “The first invaluable lesson that Little Tree was taught by his grandparents was ”.
