    Reading Workshop: Children are learning about Social Issues.  We defined Social Issues as problems or issues related to real life.  Children will learn that most of the books they read contain social issues.  They will learn to read with glasses that make them, look closely at characters & their struggles to figure out the social issue in the book.  After identifying the social issue(s) in the books they are reading, children will look at all the ways their characters deals with the struggles he or she faces.  Children will also learn to identify social issues in a non fiction text.
