This webinar focuses on fictional families facing some very real problems; hunger, parental illness, joblessness, unpaid bills, and homelessness. Students can learn valuable life lessons concerning earning, saving, spending, and creative problem solving in books such as Crenshaw, How to Steal a Dog, and Survival Strategies of the Almost Brave. Webinar attendees will receive links to classroom-ready lessons and a topical bibliography.
