The Land I Lost

I am a student teacher in the University of California, Davis credential program and am currently student teaching an English Language Learners class at Florin High School in Sacramento. I decided to use The Land I Lost in my classroom because I interact daily with many Vietnamese students who are able to relate to the material. This book lends itself to many activities dealing with plot and theme. For example, our class composed graphics from chapter 3, The Lone Wild Hog, portraying the theme of the individualism versus collectivism. Together, we are learning about the Vietnamese culture, and about each other. This book has been a wonderful experience for us all.

The Land I Lost

A collection of stories from the author's boyhood memories of a small hamlet in Vietnam. He does a good job of describing the carefree life of a young boy in Vietnam. Very good histrical book with excellent black and white illustrations. Recommended for students in the 4th through the 9th grades. Also recommeded for teachers of these levels.
