Me problems with her pupils but not that much and there s very little f the novel actually focused n teaching Most f the little The Something of the novel actually focusedn teaching Most f the Sarah Jane is nly briefly describing what she does while expounding n the tension at her boarding house r n brief clashes with the studentsThere s also such "a strange inclusion here f a reverend character "strange inclusion here Shivers: four in one: The Enchanted Attic/A Ghastly Shade of Green/The Locked Room - The Awful Apple Orchard of a Reverend character the Historical Note Murphy talks about religion so it s not strange to have a Reverend What s strange is that the Reverend s actions are contrasted with thatf the boarding house L'Oracle de votre subconscient : I-Ching, Le Livre des transformations owner Miss Kizer and there s andd scene where Sarah Jane Weirdos of the Universe, Unite! observes Miss Kizer reading her Bible and thinking and smiling and Sarah Jane thinks Hmm I wonder what she s thinking about Then it never comes up again So whatever comparison Murphy was trying to make falls a bit flat amidst all thether preachinessA lack Les Naufrags d'Ythaq T03 : Le soupir des toiles of conflict in My Face to the Wind coupled with a lackf focus n the actual teaching and weak student confrontations makes it very boring What saves It From A 15 Rating from a 15 rating some interesting revelations about state law hiring teachers and ther historical details Yet it s still another random topic uncompelling Dear America book to throw American Maharajah on the pile I usually love the Dear CanadaDear America etc series Thisne was a little disappointing though It is the story f a young girl who becomes a teacher like her deceased father rather than be sent to a girls home Some elements f the story were good and she did develop ver the course f the book But I felt the dialogue was stilted at times and the language Squeamish About Sushi: And other Food Adventures in Japan overall was a bit too modern My husband is really cool Okay so you re thinking what exactly does that have to do with this book Okay well he planned a surprise triput west for ur anniversary and he bought me a book for every place where we would be staying Our first stop was Broken Bow Nebraska You folks are all readers right So you know why my dude s a keeper This book was pretty good though I was reading it as an adult and bviously it s aimed at upper elementarymiddle grade readers I m a teacher so I was thinking about which The Quarterback's Crush of my students would enjoy it I d say that I ve read better YA and Middle Grade books There was a sprinklingf modern language and turns f phrase that distracted me from the time period in which the story takes place As a teacher I definitely felt for the main character as she struggled to take her father s place and do her job with no support from the community no textbooks and a garbage classroom A lot f teachers this very second are in a similar situation I couldn t help but put myself in Sarah Jane s shoes The snowstorm element brought up good memories f reading The Long Winter by Laura Ingalls Wilder But then I thought maybe I should just re read The Long Winter Some very good descriptions I loved how the wind was personified in the story and when I got to Broken Bow yeah the wind feels like it s ut to get you The story could have done a little with the Native Americans The characters were Achtung!

Beauregard on but nothing camef it which wasn t very rewarding for people who bother to pay attention to subtext Might be worth adding to your classroom library as I think it would definitely interest some readers This My Wishful Thinking one was pretty slow for me The plot doesn t move very fast and the characters weren t especially engrossing I did enjoy the look it provided at prairie teachers especially since my parents are both teachers The historical details were interesting and it did show how far education has come I remember how badly I hate diary books as soon as I started reading She waved her napkin in frontf Miss Hools were inadeuate at best Some returned home unable to endure the hardships The Boy and the Blue Moon of prairie life butthers were comm. .



Originally I picked this book up because my great grandmother was a teenage ne room schoolhouse teacher in Louisiana and I had already read her journal and wanted to compare What I got was somewhat satisfyingWhen a fourteen year ld The Screwball Comedy Films: A History and Filmography, 1934-1942 orphan girl named Sarah Jane is almost forced to abandon her current hometownf Broken Bow Nebraska and move to "AN ORPHAN GIRLS ASYLUM NOT A MENTAL ASYLUM MIND "orphan girls asylum not a mental asylum mind she comes up with a plan become a teacher She figures it will be somewhat easy her father was a teacher and she had many poems memorized As it turns Father Tom Padilla: Mark of the Demon Priest out being a teacher is anything but How will she deal with bad chilren angry parents storms Indians an upset reverend and And how will she cope with her father s deathThis book iskay for the most part but it was a little slow paced and dull The writing was descriptive something I like However f there is too many details and not enough moving forward it can easily lose it s interest Compared to my great grandmother her life is not nearly as exciting but I don t mind that I recommend this to anyone who doesn t mind a slow book This addition to the Dear America series takes place n the American prairie f Nebraska in the 1880 s Sarah Jane has recently lost her father and is at risk f being sent to a girls home In rder to stay in the town Eat Vegan on $4.00 a Day of Broken Bow Sarah Jane lies about her age inrder to get the town to approve her as the new teacher for the spring term a position her father was riginally supposed to take Sarah Jane is given the position and must learn how to handle her group f students Also included are information about life Pantyhose Professionals (Pantyhose Diaries Book 2) on the prairie andne roomed schoolhouses f the timeI enjoyed the Dear AmericaMy Name is America series growing up but somehow missed this ne The idea Masterchef Junior Cookbook: Bold Recipes and Essential Techniques to Inspire Young Cooks of a story setn the prairie initially intrigued me so I decided to read this Sarah Jane s story is a bit slower moving than the Black Macho and the Myth of the Superwoman other storiesf the series that I have read The story also ends rather abruptly in my Study of Organ Inferiority and Its Psychical Compensation; A Contribution to Clinical Medicine - Scholar's Choice Edition opinion with not muchf a focus n Sarah Jane s experiences as being a young teacher Still it is worth Trying To See How You Like It Especially If The to see how you like it especially if the interests you Interesting story about a 14 yr ld young lady who uses her whits and begins teaching school in soddy in Nebreska 1883Faith life teaching people make up this book Sarah Jane rphaned in a small Nebraska town called Broken Bow decides to take n the job f teacher rather than being sent to an rphanage a few towns away Then there s tension with just about every authority figure in town before it magically gets resolved because this is a kid s book guys We can t have cranky adults when the heroine is being awesome right1 Her motivation for staying in the town washer dad s grave2 Her friend Ida read like the snotty 9 year Bases Loaded old cousin you hangut with because your mother told you to and not because you particularly like them But they were supposed to be bffs3 Seriously SO MANY CRANKY ADULTS 4 Sarah Jane lies to get the job as teacher but that never becomes a relevant plot point again So you know5 Such a slow moving monstrosity Perhaps it s just because I am no longer the presumed demographic for this book but wow was I disappointed by this Have A Good Night, Volume 1 one I remember always feeling surprised at the endf a Dear America book that the heroine was fictional because the world they lived in was so fully realized But Sarah Jane and Broken Bow both felt so flat and transparent that it took me dragging myself through diary entry by diary entry to complete this bookDisappointing myself through diary entry by diary entry to complete this bookDisappointing America really picks some dd topics to focus n My Face to the Wind is about teaching school in the West And it s about as interesting as it soundsI m sure that topic could be made interesting Laura Ingalls Wilder s story in These Happy Golden Years comes to mind but the book takes way too long to get to the actual teaching part and there isn t enough conflict r tension to keep things interesting Oh sure Sarah Jane has so.
