Journeys ELA: In the Year of the Boar

ELA Reading Focus Activity

  • This is a close reading activity paired with the book In the Year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson. In this beautiful story of immigration and assimilation, Shirley Temple Wong must learn to make friends and find her way in a country that, at first, does not make much sense to her. Once she finds the perfect role model, life gets a little easier.
