History serves as a springboard that shapes future events. 3.Knowing history is no guarantee of good character, but it is nourished by a grounding in past examples.
4. We need to build life skills that demonstrate we can interpret and communicate information in diverse ways; to include creating graphic designs. Conclusion: We need to be competent, passionate readers and self-assured, ardent writers if we are to increase our knowledge of American history. 5.All writers, in any genre, have the right to express their own voice in any work they create.

Inside Left Flap THE KIDNAPPING Inside Center column Why Lindbergh is famous Inside Right Flap Remarkable Events of Lindbergh’s Life In 1930 the Lindbergh baby was kidnapped. A ransom was paid and the bills eventually led to the arrest of Bruno Hauptmann. Revised to: During the 1930’s when most of the country was suffering from poverty because of the Great Depression, some people decided to turn to crime. Hauptmann was such a person. Lindbergh was wealthy and famous which made him a perfect target for such an enterprise.
What insight does McCullough give us regarding Lindbergh’s quote? "The evil of technology was not technology itself, Lindbergh came to see after the war, not in airplanes or the myriad contrivances of modern technical ingenuity but in the extent to which they can distance us from our better moral nature, or sense of personal accountability." David McCullough (Brave Companions)
A lesson to be applied: How are we using our advanced technology today? In today’s digital world and with the development & expansion of the social media, we have a moral responsibility to use these technological devices to advance the good for our society & the world.

Common Core Standards Key Ideas and Details RH Cite specific textual evidence to support analysis of primary and secondary sources, attending to such features as the date and origin of the information. RH Determine the central ideas or information of a primary or secondary source; provide an accurate summary of how key events or ideas develop over the course of the text. RH Analyze in detail a series of events described in a text; determine whether earlier events caused later ones or simply preceded them. Craft and Structure RH Determine the meaning of words and phrases as they are used in a text, including vocabulary describing political, social, or economic aspects of history/social science. RH Analyze how a text uses structure to emphasize key points or advance an explanation or analysis. Integration of Knowledge and Ideas RH Integrate quantitative or technical analysis (e.g., charts, research data) with qualitative analysis in print or digital text. RH Compare and contrast treatments of the same topic in several primary and secondary sources. Range of Reading and Level of Text Complexity RH By the end of grade 10, read and comprehend history/social studies texts in the grades 9–10 text complexity band independently and proficiently.
Objective of Lesson To demonstrate how the writing process using graphics can be used across the curriculum and how it transfers to life-skills.
