really liked it

The Circuit: Stories from the Life of a Migrant Child is a great example of an autobiographical text. This story is a recollection of a boy who's family are migrant workers. These accounts follow the family through the different fields through California, and their survival as they move from place to place. This story is geared for grades fourth through sixth grade. I would recommend this story for students, as they can get a better understanding of what families during this time go through. While students are reading this book, teachers are able to cover multiple subjects. For example, teachers can form their social studies lesson plan when reading this book. In addition, teachers can have students write their own autobiography, just as in The Circuit. Overall I enjoyed this book very much, and I do recommend this story for the classroom. I believe this story tells powerful story that a lot of students don't often hear about.
